Blessed

After spending Thanksgiving Day with family at church and at home I'm feeling overwhelmed by God's blessing in my life. I am surrounded by some pretty amazing Jesus followers and I feel blessed to have a front row seat to the things God is doing in their lives and through their lives. I was also reminded of all the blessings I often take for granted and have committed myself (again) to give thanks in ALL circumstances, not FOR all circumstances but IN all circumstances.
If you are reading this, I am thankful for YOU! You are a blessing to me and to our family. I hope that your Thanksgiving was wonderful too! May God bless you and your family and may you know that the reason you are blessed is so that you can in turn be a blessing to others. Who can you share your blessings with TODAY?

Bigger, Bigger

Just a few Drew pictures to keep you posted on how BIG he is getting. He's such a happy guy. Sleeping like a champion. He has become quite the sweet "talker" too (when he IS awake). He's my lover boy!

November

Did you know that November is Adoption Awareness month? I'll bet you didn't. Did you know that I'm kinda-sorta-lotta passionate about adoption? You might've. Did you know that there are an estimated 143 million orphans and waiting children in the world? Bet not. Does that number overwhelm you as much as it does me? Probably. Do you have a soft spot in your heart for kids who just want someone to tuck them in at night, hang a stocking on the mantle for them at Christmas, celebrate their acheivements with them and comfort them when they're hurt or sad? I hope so. I know that adoption isn't for everyone. I also know that it is for a LOT of people but they just don't know it yet. Could yours be an adoptive family? Think about it. Pray about it. If you're heart gets a little achy and fluttery when you think about the possibility of adoption please don't ignore it! Take action! If you'd like more information about adoption, foster care or child sponsorship, I have some connections and would LOVE to share them with you.

Here is a place to get started. It's worth the effort to check out. (Cry of the Orphan)

This month, my song selections are in honor of all those kids just waiting.

I Voted!

I didn't get the cool "I voted" sticker that I saw at the polls on the news today. Thought I'd declare it here instead.
