I started off the new year determined to be about the Master's business and found some fresh inspiration, above, from my daughter in-law.
My son and his wife rescue children from our terrible world through the Foster Care program. They have adopted 5 children so far. Recently two little boys were saved from a cursed home where they were left in their cribs all the time and terribly neglected.
With all the sorrows that go into that scenario, it seemed these boys were too badly neglected to recover.
had other plans and I've been able to see miracles happen when God's people go into the gutters to rescue the fatherless.
This picture above is little Luke walking for the first time. From jello legs to a strong resolve to walk under the care of a loving family.
The two boys were scared and scary when they first lay down in the cribs at our son's house. Screaming all night, they were mentally drained. My son and I tried playing soft Christian music in their room when I was visiting, and it worked! I had gotten tired of singing 400 stanzas of Jesus Loves You.
These two boys are very different from when they arrived 3 months ago.
While they have a long way to go, this house is the place where they can be on that journey safe and sound.
Pray for them, and for the Courts to do what is right for these children.
My sons and daughters are my heroes every day.
