Behold, Children are a Hertitage from the Lord

Psalm 127:3-5  Behold, children are a heritage  from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a  warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his  quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies  in the gate.

Congratulations, Lorraine, on your new business! Ministering to children through our lives is a privilege.

Speaking of children and ministering, my family just joined forces with a fantastic organization called Compassion International by sponsoring a little girl named Rachel.

“Compassion International is a Christian child development organization dedicated to releasing children from poverty. Our ministry is twofold: We work through local churches to provide child development programs to deliver children from economic, physical, social and spiritual poverty, enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. And we speak out for children in poverty – informing, motivating and equipping others to become advocates for children.” Quote taken from

We can each do our part to change the world by positively investing in a child’s life!


Happy Anniversary!

The story that accompanies this drawing is so romantic, and so apropos!!

While Zack and Danielle were dating, Zack carried this picture around with him that Danielle had drawn for him.  Now, for their twelfth anniversary, Zack asked me to turn this drawing into a softie for his beloved Danielle as an anniversary gift!

Zack, that was so thoughtful. I wish you and Danielle a very Happy Anniversary!

Marraige is a wonderful blessing that takes a lot of work, patience, and selflessness. As a matter of fact, my husband and I will be celebrating our anniversary next week.

You have inspired me, Zack! I need to do something sweet and thoughtful for my honey for our anniversary. Humm? Not sure what. Any ideas???
