"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."

I believe in God.

"Beauty from the Ashes": A New Prayer Warrior Assignment

I believe that God and the fate of the world are like a river flowing along, and our prayers and actions are rocks we throw in to change the direction and force of the current.  A while back, Russia banned most American adoptions from their country, which is where "Rheann" is living.  Still, I prayed for "Rheann" to make it out.  Yesterday, however, I read that they had tightened restrictions still further and that Reece's Rainbow was reallocating the grant funds from their Russian children to others who had a better chance of finding families.

I knew that if Reece's Rainbow was reallocating funds, the "river" in Russia had really dried up.  It doesn't do any good to throw stones at dry land.  With a heavy heart, I "gave up" on "Rheann."  She will always be in my heart--how could she not be?--and I will pray for her when I have strength for multiple people, but I requested a new "prayer warrior assignment."

It is therefore with joyful heart and open arms that I welcome "my" new child, "Isabella." "Isabella" is a six-year-old girl with Down Syndrome living in Asia.  See picture below:

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
