So remember this little sweetie?

I received an email last night letting me know she has a family!!! PRAISE GOD!!!!
That family is going to be SOOOO blessed! Truly, what a priceless gem to call "daughter". 

So....I thought I'd advocate for another treasure that pulls at my heartstrings....deeply. Who knows, maybe someone will see him on here and feel God calling them to bring him "home" or maybe they will share about him to someone else who will be the ones chosen to love him forever.  This little one is seriously running out of time. Please pray for a family to bring him "HOME".

This is from Until All The Children Come Home website. 

This little guy needs to come home so desperately!His name is Marat. He has spastic displegic cerebral palsy and is doing beautifully. He is from the south-eastern lands, Azerbaijan or Tadjikistan - a minority in Russia. If you adopt him you will be going through Region 15. He sat for three years in a wheel-chair in his orphanage because he has Cerebral palsy and they didn't know what to do with him. Finally he was lucky to be hospitalized and to come under my friend's radar while in the lucky to be hospitalized and to come under my friend's radar while in the hospital. Operation was not needed at the end - doctors just applied a cast to straighten his feet, and he started to walk! But he is so afraid to walk - he shakes like a little bunny in a winter snow every time he is pulled up for physical therapy. He needs a gentle, soft hand to guide him through PT. He is teased by older kids in his orphanage badly, he is very alone there. He begged my friend to please adopt him so he wouldn't have to go back. 
His friend is his little stuffed tiger. He carries it everywhere, he kisses it, puts it to sleep,worries about it. 
Malcolm is interested in everything going on around him, he knows all the names and colors, understands all commands and does them happily, has attachments to some friends in the orphanage, he loves to talk to people who come into the orphanage. He is very kind kid, too timid to survive the orphanage. He is facing transfer to a mental institution (this kid is NOT mentallychallenged, he is pretty smart actually) in Spring, - it will be a disaster for him. If we have a family before April, orphanage will hold him up till they come. Please search your heart! Is he your child???

Email me at for more information on him!

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 sometimes 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…
