His Mercy

A Thought

In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Just Another Ordinary Miracle of a Day

You know, every day is a miraculous day. Even ordinary days. Because life just isn't that ordinary. :) You know, I can't imagine what our lives would be like without our sweet girls, nor can I imagine what their lives might be like. It would be too painful to even think about our sweet Erika in a mental institution, wasting away, in constant pain, and lonely. It would be awful to think of where Sarah might be, and Anna too. The Lord brought them to us for a purpose. He wanted us to love them and to guide them into adulthood. He has a plan for their not so ordinary lives. And he has taken OUR ordinary lives, and made them, well, just plain fun! Thank you Lord!

So, here are some highlights:

Erika was doing school work in the kitchen.

She solved the "paint on her shirt problem", but putting a sticker over it. There, solved!

Anna was busy studying poetry.

Sarah decided to do her work in her room, after setting up a boutique, putting up a "help wanted" sign, and arranging all her lip gloss, all for sale of course. :)

Anna was pretty pleased that she had a great school day. :)

All the miracles of an ordinary day. :)
