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)

The Picture

This is the only picture Alli has of her sister and brother with her.  She is cherishing it today.  She printed it out and it is on her wall above her bed. :)   Alli is the one with the huge bow! :)
They all have the same smile. :)

She is understanding that she can love her brother and sister fully, while loving her other brothers and sisters fully.  She doesn't have to choose between families.  Each person in her life, including those who are fellow believers, are brothers and sisters.

We are all family.  And she is a part of a very large family. :)

I think she realized this last night when we attended the wedding of a sweet friend.  All those people who had only seen her in pictures, were squeezing those sweet cheeks and giving her hugs and loving on her.  She is certainly a part of a very large family.
Last night, she embraced it.  I was so proud of her!

And this a.m. she was laughing and talking in a positive way  about how many hugs she received.

Morning Christie and family - sorry I've been absent - but you understand "family matters" - and my attention had to be else where. And like any family matters - no - they aren't resolved - but are in progress.

Absolutely loved the past few posts - happy birthdays where proper - and couldn't be any more proud of your daughter than you are. Maturity coming in all things - and that's good and right and proper!

And finally a word about change - "I" is what it is all about - you cannot - no matter what - effect change in anyone but yourself. Once that lesson is learned - the rest falls into place because it's not really any longer "change" - it is "choice"!

hugs - great stuff - prayers offered and requested!

And this picture is a very beautiful part of the fabric of Miss Alli's life tapestry. :)

Oh yes I remember the story of those bows, and how they had to chase her and corner her to make her wear them... Poor Alli!
