It's a new week filled with so many possibilities and blessings in our Lord; all we have to do is have open hands held up to Him. Yesterday I had breakfast with a young woman who was one of the first people I met before we moved here. This young gal is in her 20's and has such a heart for orphans, especially in Haiti. I haven't seen her in almost a year and as we visited she showed me photos of her latest trip to Haiti.
She stayed with a lady named Danita and Annie told so many heartwarming and heart-wrenching stories as she showed us the photos. This orphanage is not associated with any other large organization but is existing on the Lord's provision. Hearing these stories and gazing upon the photos of the children made me look towards years past wishing I could have joined a team ministering to the children. If you want to be challenged today, go check out this website and seek the Lord for direction on how you might give aid.
Today I am especially thankful for the different seasons of life and all that the Lord intends for each season. I am thankful for a young woman named Annie who openly shares her passion for orphans and draws others to them as well. I am thankful for women and men who give up everything to minister to children, to bring life physically as well as spiritually to a hungry world.
I am thankful for lots of snow this last weekend and the warmth of sunshine that brought beauty to the pristine white. I am thankful, once again, that the Lord wastes nothing but redeems everything.
