PRECIOUS GIFTS

So today in my classes, three of my dear students blessed me in a way that chokes me up.  Two brothers each handed me a dollar.  Another student gave me a bag full of change she had lovingly gathered.  They were so excited.  They gave with such joy!  It may not seem like much.  A couple of dollars and a bit of change against 24,000 dollars.... a few loaves and fishes to feed thousands... But what precious gifts of faith.  Given with such pleasure.  Believing.  Trusting.  Knowing in their child-like faith that God can move mountains.  I am humbled.   Thank you John, Jason and Anne.  Your faith inspires me.

  2. I found your blog through reading the Machearns blog. As an adoptive parent I understand the big huge faith that it seems to take to hang tough for the duration, BUT I will say it will be one of the most unbelievable experiences of your life! We are along for our third adoption from Ukraine and what I ride it is! All God's best to you!
