That time of the year but really does this opportunity of a lifetime have a "set" designated time that you contribute. A designed time that you personally devote yourself to? Prayerfully all year I will be on the lookout. The lookout for items that will make that "one" child or "one" family life a little easier but all with the Hope of Jesus Christ all things are possible. He is the BEGINNING AND THE END. He was and is God. Always has been. Never a time that Jesus was not God. A man made in flesh to dwell with us, sinners, but was God before creation. Tears immediately well up when the pictures are displayed. Either from Compassion Child or Operation Christmas Child. Will I be able to justify my stinginess, at that appointed time with our Lord Jesus Christ. Balance is greatly needed with our country. With our men and women that roll in luxury. My Droid's, shiny automobile, warm toasty home, hottt hott coffee with buttery topped muffin. You get the picture.Balance is needed with me. Lets begin with me and I'll let you'll worry about your (sic) ownself? Yes I can do more!! I will do more!!. No limit on time, no limit on prayer, thno limit on availability!
November 26th Atlanta. Reboxing in headquarters. Gold will be found. Gold such as soap, toothbrushes, washclothes. Last year I discovered that the households of these boxes that even the paper that sometimes are wrapped around the boxes are used. Instructed to place wrapping paper back into box. Packed I found little tool boxes? WOW! little sewing pkgs. Things I never thought of? Remember a shoe box? Many happy faces this year. Can you imagine the thought of just a bar of soap. U might not have the water to use that bar of soap but it still will be used. These countries are not lost just misplaced and we have a choice to make with our talents?
The harvest is plenty but the workers are few. He will wash your sins and you become white as snow (His righteousness).
I love you Lord.

i want you to raise my daughters? 3 years ago i offered to do that and with thanksgiving i look forward to it! death, she was sure and is sure to happen unless an absolute miracle comes her way within the next few days. cancer has robbed her bones, stolen her breasts, and now eats away her brain. Lord is this the right choice? my conclusion are as follows: they would be placed with foster persons, have no family contact, BE LOST FOREVER. so why would i not do this? keep our family together. at 62 i never imagined this but I think my heavenly Father has been prepping me all my life for this day. i would absolutely have to turn my back and say no way for there are no other people in family that will take them or can take them. she is i think 8 and the other i think 5. sexually abused, mentally stalled, and with speech impediments this will be a challenge. but to think 2 little ones being prepared for the kindom of Christ is so much more. i pray for mom, my niece, every day. but now she has peace knowing her daughters are with one that love them. will raise them with love for our God.
i love you Lord and you are good all the time!!
