Post of many topics :)

So, yeah, I've been slacking on my blog. I look at it every day and think to myself, "You need to blog"...but I don't. I read everyone else's instead. :) There are a lot of awesome things going on with my blogosphere friends.

Number 1- Aaron  is home!!! :)

Don't you remember my post about Aaron? Well, the Lord has brought them all home safely! :) That is so awesome!

Number 2- The Salems' had a fundraiser for sweet Yulia from Reece's Rainbow. The Salems adopted 2 little girls from the same orphanage as Yulia and saw how desperate her situation was. She is literally living in a crib. Her time is running short and she will soon be transferred to an institution. She will not survive. But the awesome news is that in 5 short days The Salems GOD raised $20,000!!! So whenever (this is what we're praying for) her family finds her they're adoption expenses will be pretty much covered!!! :)

Number 3- While looking through Reece's Rainbow the other day, I saw something sad. Well, all of it is sad. But I noticed that my Catherine (a little girl who I am prayer warrior for) was moved to the "Older Girls" page. :( Do you know how many people will overlook her now that she is considered "older"?! Her time is so crucial. She cannot stop herself from getting older! :( I am not giving up faith yet. The Lord has a family for her, I know it!
Isn't she a doll?!
Number 4- In 48 hours, I will be in El Salvador!!!!!!!!!!! :) :) I know that I posted a LOT about wanting to go back in October. Well, The Lord provided (through a few VERY generous and obedient givers) and I am going. And I can't wait. I want it to go by slowly, though! I want to have LOTS of time to love on the kids! :) I can't wait to see my Carlos!

And Douglas,

and all of the others! haha. :)

And ya know, sometimes I feel so far from the Lord. In those times, deep down, I know He has not gone anywhere. It's me. For some odd reason, I stray. Why, oh why do we stray from the One or ones who love us the absolute most?! Is it because we know Their love is unconditional? I just don't get it. The One who has done the MOST for me is the One who I don't have time for! It is just ludicrous. Each day, I am striving to get my prayer life where it should be. Each day, I am striving to get my time in with the Lord. Each day, I am taking it one day at a time. I fail so badly, though. I just don't get why He puts up with me. But man, I am glad He does! One thing I do know is that He has put a passion in my heart, and I must follow it. I'm following it to El Salvador for now. For this week. But, that's not gonna be it. I feel it. This passion of orphans is gonna stick around for a while. It's a case that doesn't go away. It's a case that the Lord is broken over. So, we must be broken over it, too! How are we to do HIS work without feeling a portion of what He feels? I am going. I am following. I am listening.

And.....I think I'm caught up now! :) I plan on posting from El Salvador so stay tuned!!!! :)

  1. I propose that next year we go to the Together For Adoption Conference! (It's all about taking care of the orphans and would be an awesome place for you to connect/hear about other ministries to orphans.)
