This makes me smile

Last night we were waching "Meet The Fairies" movie. It is a little kids movie. All the Ghana kids loved it. As you can tell Annabel loved it the most. Every time the fairies were singing she would start dancing. She was so cute.

Giving Andrew a hair cut :)

We have given Andrew a hair cut before. When we were in Bulgaria it took 3 to 4 people to cut his hair. Now it doesn't even take one person. He did so well.  He has changed so much slow but change. I thank God for all he has done in his life.

Power For Problems

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  Philippians 4:13

God gives us wisdom and courage. He will surround us with brothers and sisters in Christ to help carry our burdens, and even provide us with insight and practical assistance.
 Satan will always try to discourage those who belong to Christ. When problems persist, he may even whisper, "See, God doesn't care about you!" But with the Holy Spirit's help, we can combat the evil one and contradict his lies.
 If God dismissed all our problems with a single stroke, we would be left defenseless, unequipped to meet the inevitable attacks of the enemy of our souls. But in the midst of life's problems God supplies everything we need to see us through.

Girls had a sleep over

Last night as you can tell all the girls had a sleep over down steers in one of our rooms with a TV. They watched Marley and Me. Ava my niece was over to. As you can tell Mya and Ava love sleeping in different room like this one. Gracie did to. She brought her pillow and her blanket and was ready for the movie. Mya decided to hang this peace of paper on a door so boys won't come in.

In the Time of Trouble

Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you.  Psalm 55:22

Some things in life cannot be changed and some can. Some things God has given to us as fixed realities that we must accept. And some things He would have us not accept, but  (with His help) work to change. If we fail to do both of these to accept some things and to change others we will end up burdened with worry,  undeserved guilt, and frustration.
 Worry is the interest paid on trouble before it comes due. Instead, God would have us learn to trust Him. "Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you."
