Higher than the mountains that I face, stronger than the power of the grave, constant in the trial and the change. One thing remains…Your love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me.

Hi hey hello,

As I was thinking and praying last night, I was once again reminded of how thankful I should be. I have read the quote many many times that says essentially, what if you woke up tomorrow and only had the things you thanked God for. This quote has, for some reason, stuck out in my head and kept me accountable in a way to thanking God for everything He has done for me and given to me. This got me thinking of other things I needed to be, things like humble, giving, fearless, kingdom-minded, unashamed, sincere, the list goes on. As I thought about these things, I quickly made a little sign thing that said simply “Be thankful.”
This was the springboard for the rest of the idea that I quickly whipped up last night. Basically all you need are a cork board, sharpie, and sticky notes. Up in the top left corner I wrote the word “Be” on a sticky note, then covered the rest of the board in words like joyful, thankful, giving, humble, merciful, and courageous. It now sits on my desk as a daily reminder of how I should be growing to be more like God.

Baby Adam’s Journey!

Hi hey hello,

Yesterday, I mentioned that today’s blog post would be about an amazing story, so I am very excited to tell this incredible tale.

Basically, there was an infant, little Adam, who was born in September at the hospital Dr.Raja and Jessica Paulraj worked at. This child’s parents were unable to take care of him. He was born with a cleft palate and lip, no eyelids, and fused feet. Dr.Raja and Jessica fell in love with Adam. On September 24, the Paulraj’s began the process of adopting little Adam. He became their legal son in early October. He got his passport and visa, ready to come over to the US to have the operations he desperately needed to survive.

They all got here, and found out they were an incredibly large sum of money short, $100,00 to be exact. The surgery was a week away and they needed to raise $100,000. They trusted God, they knew He had a plan, they trusted that if it was His will, He would come through, and He did! Within 1 week, that is 7 days in case you forgot, enough donations were sent in for little Adam to have his surgery. They blogged about it, told friends, sent emails, and with God’s hand guiding the whole process, got the money they needed.

Yesterday, Little Adam went in to have his eyelid surgery. So much prayer covered that OR. That little child was prayed for by innumerable amounts of people. He came out of surgery and is doing great. He is off the ventilator, breathing on his own. They are not sure yet how his eyelids will look and function or if his eye sight will be damaged, we can only pray and trust God.

Please pray for this family has this must be a trying time for them. Pray for trust, love, joy, laughter, peace. If you are able, you can give money to help support his medical care  Click Here!
