Worth reading...

A friend of ours, out here in the boonies, has a blog of his own. He is one of the worship leaders at our church. He and his wife have served in so many ways at our tiny church. They are always willing to step in to fill a need.

They also were the founders and often teachers of our 'home group.' This group of families meets in our home on Wednesday evenings during the school year.

Just to give you a glimpse into our group... when we found out our first foster baby girl was going to be leaving, a few of these women actually cried with me. I mean real tears... about a child they had prayed for and spent evenings holding in their arms. We were and are honored by the sincere love and concern that grows in this group. There has never been a discouraging, gossipy word uttered by our friends in this group about one another - and we are even a year and a half into it! This is a rare thing in our world today.

So, back to our friend the blogger. His entry today is wonderful and I encourage you to read "Take a Stand - Planting and Harvesting" for yourself. He speaks to my heart today, in a moment where I want to take control; I want to make the miracles happen in relation to our family. And yet, I know the One who designed the seed and asks us only to plant and water. The mystery of who He is renders me speechless.

He knows the children who will be in our home... all our family needs to do is get out our seeds of love, water the souls of the little ones with commitment and security and watch Him bring in the harvest.
