An important message...

Julie said it so well and I just can't put words together, so, to find out what I'm talking about go HERE and see for yourself. And in case you're wondering too... that little Alina she has pictured? We just got word that she passed away in an orphanage in Ukraine. Hug those babies close and go read what Julie has to say.


  1. At church today, we sang "Children of the Heavenly Father", a Swedish hymn written by Caroline V. Sandell-Berg in 1855. I was not previously familiar with it, but immediately thought of Emma and copied the words to send you. They apply to sweet Alina, too...and to all children who are given into our care:

    1.Children of the heavenly Father
    softly in his bosom gather,
    Nestling bird nor star in heaven
    such a refuge e'er was given.

    2. God his own doth tend and nourish
    in his holy courts they flourish,
    from all evil things he spares them
    in his mighty arms he bears them.

    3. Neither life nor death shall ever
    from the Lord his children sever,
    Unto them his grace he showeth
    and their sorrows all he knoweth.

    4.Though he giveth and he taketh
    God his children ne'er forsaketh,
    His the loving purpose solely
    To preserve them, pure and holy.

    Prayers for Emma, for her family, and for Alina and those who loved her....

  2. You will be in our prayers.
