Please...


Mommy, can I help you cook dinner? 
PPPPPLLLLLLEEEEAAAASSSSEEE?
Now, how can I resist that?!
So in the last couple of days this little boy has helped make banana bread, crispy chili pie, fruit salad and cookies. 
I'm thinking future chef in the making!


And on that note I would like to beg each of you....
pppllleeeaaassseeee....
help make a difference in the life of a child today:

 The One Day - One Lunch opportunity is to bless children in Ethiopia. Addisyn is an amazing, God loving young woman who has made such an impact in the world already and she is only 15!!!

 No Greater Gift has been busy collecting donations to send to special needs children in Uganda. Time is short so please drop in and read items in need. It will change the life of a child!!

Linny is looking for ladies willing to be the Hands and Feet of Jesus to the orphans in Uganda. Oh how I'd love to go but it's not my time....yet! Maybe it's your time to go and serve.
 Go check out the info and see how God will use you.

Bloggy friend Lori is holding an adoption fundraiser to bring her two sons home from China. 

Orphan's Wish has a beautiful bracelet perfect for Valentine's Day to give to anyone donating to help special needs children in China.

New bloggy friend, Kiara, is raising funds for their next adoption as well. They are making and selling whipped body butters. Let me just tell you they are FABULOUS!! I just received mine this week and it smells divine, especially when I use it all over my sweet Nolan. It is light and non-greasy, just perfect! Hop on over and check it out. Every dollar goes to their adoption fund!!!

Look at him! Could he get any cuter?? I wouldn't be able to say no, that's for sure.

Thanks so much for the links. I hadn't heard about One Day - One Lunch. Just last night, I was crying to hubby because I wanted to do something concrete to help the orphans and I didn't feel like there was anything I can do right now. He told me to pray about it and we'd find something, and he was right! Of course, I thought that today was the 2nd, so I was all ready to post on FB and my blog about it happening tomorrow. Thankfully, I realized the date before I posted. :) Our family will just do it a day late!

Isn't Kiara's body butter amazing? It's as wonderful for my hands as it is for the children's skin and hair!

Thanks for the great post. Off to check out the other links...

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
