I moved!

My new blog is HERE.

I hope you will move with me. Remember...if nothing changed there would be no butterflies!

I might need to move my blog

Blogger is going to start charging for photo storage (20 to 500 dollars per year). I guess you can store up to 10GB for free, but after that they charge you. I hear that some airlines want to charge for the toilets too!!! I like to put lots of photos on my blogs. I'm also cheep! I think for me the answer is to create a new blog with a new e-mail address. If it works I will be moving my blog soon. I am letting you know now. I hope you will keep following me!

A crisis of need

By 2010, the total orphan population in 34 African, Asian, and Latin American countries with severe HIV/AIDS epidemics is projected to reach 44 million—with two-thirds orphaned as a result of parental deaths caused by AIDS. This will create a child-care crisis never before seen in any war, famine, or other tragedy. Botswana, Namibia, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Central African Republic, and South Africa are expected to have the highest proportion of children orphaned—about one-third or more—while Ethiopia and Nigeria have the largest number of orphans under age 15. There are now over 5 million children in Ethiopia that have been orphaned because of AIDS, poverty, or other sicknesses like TB and Malaria. They need your good thoughts and prayers...but more then that they need a family. We do not live in normal times. We live in an hour of great need. Our response needs to be great for the need is so great.

A religion that is pure and stainless according to God the Father is this: to take care of orphans and widows who are suffering, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. James 1:27

I heart photo week 12 Pouting

KIDS ENTRY: this photo was taken in Thailand. This is my autistic daughter Jessica riding in a tuk tuk taxi. This was taken on her 15th birthday. I have some great photos from that day! Jessica can pout with her whole body but she can also smile good too. She can not talk but her laugh is the sweetest sound I know!

why God?

Sometimes I'd like to ask God why he allows poverty, famine and injustice in the world when He could do something about it...but I'm afraid God might ask me the question. ~Anonymous
