I am aware that it is Friday, and I would normally be posting the ‘Pinterest Favourites’, but I wasn’t able to put together such a post this time. I may change the frequency in which I post Friday-Pinterest posts; perhaps to every-other Friday. With summer here, it isn’t quite as easy to find the time to schedule a ton of posts for me. :)
But I thought I would update quick and say that my newest nephew finally joined us last Sunday!! Well, I didn’t meet him till the following day, but oh my word, is he precious!
And actually, with that piece of news, I shall leave you. =) Tomorrow I have a book review of a lovely tale, so be on the look out for that!
(Hahaha, okay, so I couldn’t help leaving with one funny pin…. XD)
One is too many lives to be lost. But in South Asia, 50,000 female children are aborted every month.
Gospel for Asia (http://www.gfa.org/imagine-if/too-bad-im-a-girl/) says: If they live to take their first breath, they grow up being the last to eat and the most likely to be illiterate, and often they are sold into bonded labor or prostitution to provide for their families.
This information makes my heart hurt, my tears fall, and my anger stirred. It isn’t fair, and I want to do something about it. I want it to be changed. I want those girls to live and know they are loved by their Abba Father in heaven, by our great Elohim. To live and know they are cherished. I want to cherish them. I want to tell them they’re loved and hug them and show them their worth. I don’t want them to have to go through the pain and heartbreak that they do.
So I pray, and I ache. And I ask God, “When is it my time? When will You send me?”
I know I have so much more preparing to go through yet, but my heart still aches, and I still wait.
I wish I could stop even one more abortion before it happens. One more orphaned child. One more life. Because one life is always worth it all.

I have some more photos of my darling new nephew! And one is of Liam kissing him, which is so precious!
And how about some of the darling Liam?

This post should have been done earlier, but time has not allowed…
The News is…
I have another nephew!!!! Yes, Dallas had her baby on March 27th, 2013, at 5:08pm! A beautiful baby boy. He is so quiet – opposite of Liam! They named him Elias and his birth weight was 8lbs 3oz and he is 20 inches long. He is absolutely precious and we have been to see them every day since that Wednesday! I love being an aunt!! Of two handsome little boys =)
I was present at the birth, and it was such an amazing experience!! So amazing. I am so thankful I was able to be there and part of it! =) Dallas was only in labour a couple hours – from 2:30 till 5 when he was born. And it went really well, praise the Lord!! What a blessing He has blessed us with! I do have a couple photos – they aren’t the best, especially the third one, but it gives a better view of his face. Hopefully Dallas will send us the good ones on her phone =D These are just from my camera.
So, enjoy!! Hopefully more photos soonish!! :) We are there a lot, and will continue to be so, and thus I will not be online a whole lot – even when I am it is short, so I apologise for the delay in any emails!
