After my last post I just decided that i am going to smile. After all, who can get beaten down with a smile on their face? Now, I am going to admit PUBLICLY (in my flesh) that my smile might be a little sarcastic. I might be thinking down deep "sorry for you that you are missing the blessing that I receive each and every day from these sweet children that the Lord has given me!" But, at least I am smiling huh?!?! AND a smile goes a LONG way.
4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Mike and I decided after our first trip to Uganda that we were changing our "vacation" mindset. If we can save for the beach, camping, snow skiing, or whatever else that we might go and do...then we can put money away for our family to take mission trips. We saw our two oldest children be TRANSFORMED in 10 days last time that we went. Jump aboard a church planned trip, send out letters to raise funds for your trips,(people LOVE to give towards a life changing trip!) Be in prayer over where the Lord would have you go and that He would provide for your trip....HE FUNDS WHAT HE FAVORS!!!
Go see, feel, and touch the thousands of others that are just like Josie Love.
AIDS has killed more than 25 million people since 1981- more than four Jewish holocausts or 22 Rwandan genocides
In 2005, every MINUTE there were 10 newly infected people worldwide.
Africa has 12 million AIDS orphans
43% of those infected with HIV are women.
There are 40.3 million people living with HIV/AIDS worldwide, a 1/3 are between the ages of 15-24
And, I just have to type this last line or my post wouldn't feel complete.
BRING ONE HOME! (giggle)
- I am a lover of Jesus. I have the most fabulous husband that anyone woman could ask for. The Lord has blessed us with 7 beautiful children. I started this blog so that friends and family could follow our trip to Uganda to visit Katie Davis. I have decided to keep blogging to help bring orphan awareness to the world around me.
