January 22 - January 25
|What a beautiful example of new life! We were privileged|
to visit this sweet baby boy within the day of his birth.
|My big girls playing (or watching) a computer game|
|Such sweet backpacks on our first day back to Prov. 22|
Don't you just love Naomi's new one! It's perfect!

fashionable new headband under her lifesaving helmet.
As our church is currently reading through the book of Job, I have been reminded of the frailty of life and how ultimately, God is in control. For some reason, this week has been a roller coaster of emotions for me. I cried when I read of a friend from my days in Japan, who lost their precious little girl just weeks before her due date. I have never experienced such kind of pain. I have three healthy little girls. Yet, what do I do when one forgets to pick up her dirty pajamas (again!)? Do I show grace? Do I show gratitude for these precious lives that I do not deserve to be given the responsibility to care for? No.... I truly pray that God will teach me and others as we read about the life of Job.
