"For I know the plans that I have for you,'declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

Today I wasn't sure what I wanted to post about because of the devastation in Haiti; however with much thought and prayers going up for the people, I realized how thankful I am to all the organizations that are sending relief packages to the country, the individuals and their dogs who are going to do search and rescue. I am thankful we live in a time when, even in the midst of a disaster, many are still able to contact family and friends around the world reassuring them that they are safe. I am thankful that we are a country that lends a hand to those in need. I am thankful that at least one orphanage that I know of(Danita's children)was unharmed. I am thankful for a God who hears the cries of His people and answers.
With the weekend upon us, I wanted to recommend a video hubby and I watched last weekend... it is from a Beverly Lewis book and the video is called Saving Sarah Caine. I had read this book many years ago but hadn't seen the movie. It was such a good family flick that I passed it on to my oldest, her comment after watching it was that it was one of the best she's seen. We got it from NetFlix-hubby got a gift subscription for Christmas and we've been enjoying it.
I am also thankful that in this big old world there are still wonderful friends out there. I am blessed. Noreen
