On a Personal Note: Prayers / Donations Needed
Once in a while, an opportunity comes along to truly help make the load lighter for someone. I’d like to ask you, as my readers, to consider helping with your prayers and/or donations.
This week, a dear friend of mine and her husband learned that the two beautiful children that they were adopting from Haiti were no longer theirs. Although the adoption was in process, the mother came back to the orphanage and demanded the children back. More than anything else, this little family could use your prayers. You can read more at countdowntohomecoming.blogspot.com.
One of my other dear friends from high school is receiving a wonderful gift from dear friends, if they can raise enough money. Steve has Multiple Sclerosis, and the disease has progressed to the point where he was confined to a wheelchair at age 30. Because their home is not currently wheelchair accessible, he often falls while trying to traverse the hallways. Friends of Steve and his wife, Teresa, submitted their story to Extreme Makeover – Home Edition, but did not hear anything back. Deciding to take the project on themselves, they began to reach out to the community to see if they could raise enough money to remodel the home themselves. Please read more at homemakeoveraf.com, and if you can donate (even a little bit!), please do. And, if you can pass the opportunity around to your own family and friends, every little bit helps!
On a completely unrelated note: I am going to be changing web hosting–again! I will try to minimize site downtime, but if you click a link and it doesn’t take you where you want to go, try again a few days later.
