Kids Say it Best…

The Sunday school teacher was describing how Lot’s wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt, when little Jason interrupted, “My Mummy looked back once while she was driving,” he announced triumphantly, “and she turned into a telephone pole!”

A Sunday school teacher was telling her class the story of the Good Samaritan, in which a man was beaten, robbed and left for dead. She described the situation in vivid detail so her students would catch the drama. Then, she asked the class, “If you saw a person lying on the roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?”
A thoughtful little girl broke the silence, “I think I’d throw up.”



 At our Mother/Daughter banquet the pastor’s wife asked for of the daughters to come forward to share what their mother has taught them. She choose my 14-year-old daughter and as I sat their reviewing all the wonderful things I taught her, she said, “My mom taught me to love my body now, because I’m going to hate it when I’m 40.” Submitted by J. Williams


You should never pick on your sister when she has a baseball bat in her hands.

You should never ask your three-year-old brother to hold a tomato.

When your mom is mad at your dad, don’t let her brush your hair.

“It isn’t always just how you look. Look at me, I’m handsome like anything and I haven’t got anybody to marry me yet.” (Gary, 7)

Often, when I am reading a good book, I stop and thank my teacher. That is, I used to, until she got an unlisted number.

Adoption Song

posted by Nora Puls

We’re spending a week with our oldest daughter and her husband.  They live about 320 miles from us, so we only get to see them every 6 weeks or so…I’ve posted about them before.

They have two little girls that they’ve adopted in the past 3 years.  Both of them were born to moms who are drug addicts and either unable or unwilling to clean themselves up enough to care for these precious babies they carried.  I do give them credit–they at least carried the babies and didn’t abort them, although, given the 2nd mom’s history of several previous abortions, I believe it was the hand of  God that saved Gracie’s life.

I’m not showing pictures here because they live too close to the bioparents who, when they are out of prison might decide they want to check up on their kids.  The oldest, Ellie, just turned 3 and Gracie will turn 2 at the end of next month.  In both cases, it took over 13 months for the adoptions to be finalized, and this was after they brought the babies home from the hospital.  These girls have known no other parents.


Now, they have a 3rd baby, a boy, who was born 6 weeks early to a mother who was on meth and marijuana when she delivered.  The baby tested positive for the drugs, but, like his sisters, he is a fighter.  We don’t know when the adoption process will begin–the first hearing is next week and they’ve already had him in their home since early January.

All of these children are so loved and are such a blessing to all of us.  I know our Heavenly Father has a special plan for each of them.

I found this song–please listen and look at the photos…very special.
