Birthdays are definitely not in short supply
in our home
during the winter months.
And today we celebrate
the miraculous working of Almighty God
in bringing Isaiah Samuel home.
For those who know Isaiah’s story,
you remember how God moved
the enormous mountains…
If you ask Isaiah what God can do
he quips without hesitation:
“He can move mountains.”
He can and does move mountains.
Isaiah is wise beyond his 10 years,
remembers well the days he spent in the orphanage
and has a tender heart for the orphan.
He has said he has been feeling called to share
Christ with a very specific people group.
When Isaiah matter-of-factly mentioned it,
completely out of the blue,
I almost fell over.
This is definitely not a people group
that has been on our radar.
God must have some very specific plans with that
and that’s why I make mention of it today…
cause once upon a time we had a little girl
who we videoed at 8 saying she was going to
grow up in and be a missionary to the orphans
of Uganda…and well, you where that girl is today!
Lunch at Chino Bandido –
the only Chinese/Mexican restaurant
Apparently Ruby thought the name alone
was a hoot.
It’s okay to wish him a Happy 10th.
His sweet ol’ dimples will surely show
as he grins and reads through them.
