His Mercy

"His Mercies Are New Every Morning"

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

Faith

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)

The Girlies and Compassion



Tonight, Sarah and I watched this video about a dog who is wearing a prosthetic paw.  Sarah's response was, "Oh, poor dog, what happened to him?"  "Oh poor thing!"

I have seen Erika at the hospital when we are there for a visit do the same thing.  "Oh poor child!"
One time, she was sitting there with NO FEET recooperating from surgery and saw a little child with CP walking with a limp and was full of sympathy.

It is really sweet that neither of them think this about themselves. They don't think to themselves, "poor me"; in fact, they work hard to overcome their differences and do what everybody else does.... so it is humorous to me when I see their reactions to something like this.

I am sure the fact that they are surrounded daily with the love and compassion of Christ through you and daddy has just a bit to do with it ~Smile~

Peace!
