"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

First visit with Santa and 1st Trip to get a Christmas Tree!

SANTA'S LIL HELPER!





WAS NOT A FAN OF SANTA!!!! :-)





WE WENT TO SANTIAM CANYON CHRISTMAS TREE FARM IN STAYTON OREGON.  IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND HAD LOTS OF FREE GOODIES FOR THE KIDS PLUS SANTA WAS THERE.  WE GOT A BEAUTIFUL TREE TOO.  WHAT WAS REALLY NEAT THOUGH, WAS THAT THE OWNERS ADOPTED A BABY GIRL FROM ETHIOPIA -USING THE SAME AGENCY WE DID A FEW YEARS AGO.  IT WAS GREAT TO TALK WITH THEM ABOUT ADOPTION.  LOVE MEETING OTHER ADOPTIVE FAMILIES! HERE IS THERE LINK: http://santiamcanyonchristmastrees.com/?page_id=2

ORPHAN SUNDAY IS TODAY-

On this Orphan Sunday:
“Not every Christian or every Christian family is called to adopt or foster children. Every Christian IS called to care for widows and orphans in their distress (James 1:27). I think the first step for every Christian is simply to pray and ask for the wisdom to know how (not if!) you are called to care for widows and orphans, and then ask God for the opportunities to do so. You’ll be surprised how quickly he’ll answer this request, often in ways you don’t expect or even know yet that you’d want." Dr. Russell Moore
Please consider how your life could change the life of another! YOU are here to make a difference! Our family has forever been changed and we thank God each day because of this!

Come To The Rescue - Love Peter Eide and his heart for orphans!

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
