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


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)

Remembering.... This is a season of Thankfulness and Hope

Fall always reminds me of reasons to be thankful.  I just went through some random photos and could not help being so very thankful for such a rich life.  It is a life filled with love, joy and hope.

There are so many reasons to have hope for the future! 

 The Little Girl's Tea.  This is the day Erika said her first English Phrase...."That's not mine!"
My Favorite picture of Sarah and Me.  I LOVE how much she trusted me.  You can see it in her face.
It is something I have always cherished.

This is one of my favorite photos of Anna.  She loved to tease me.  I was pretending I didn't notice
her pulling on my sweater. :)

 After watching Peter Pan, the girls decided to reinact the "Oh there you are Peter" scene. LOL

Another  photo with Anna.

 Beautiful photos of Albina. Erika was practicing her photography
 At the orphanage with Miss Erika.
 Daddy bought the girls a see saw.... It has been a hit ever since!
 Blue Bonnets in Tx.... back when I THOUGHT I was old. :)
 Sister Love
 SIster Silliness
 Precious Erika
 On our way to a very special wedding. (This was the last photo of all of our girls and us together.)
 Studying.... I love this picture.
 What a smile.
 At the beach.  She wanted the crab to be in the photo. :)
 Precious ones
 A sign of hope.
 A surprise trip to Chuck E. Cheese
 Erika made it up to the top of the zip line!
 Sweet Sarah
 Family Boat time

 An impromptu photo .....
 Cooking together!
 Capturing the love of a mother and her baby.  Albina drew this of Rebecca and Ruby.
It looks just like them.  She wanted to throw it away because it wasn't good enough.

 Mama made borscht and I think they are happy!
 Growing up.....
 The Reuniting of two dear friends.... This was the "Tower of Babel Moment".....
Erika spoke no English and Sarah spoke no Russian.... uh oh!
 So Excited!
