I'm in more pain than I've been in since forever (I'll blog about that a different day), so this post is going to be short, without pictures, because that's all I can manage. I missed doing it yesterday, however, and wanted to do it before we got farther into the month.
My "Jacob," the little boy listed on Reece's Rainbow whom I've been "praying home" for over three years now, turns six this month. I don't know the exact day, and I probably couldn't share it if I did, but his description lists him as being born in June, 2010.
Six. Years. Old. My "Jacob," whose pictures still show a two-year-old, maybe even a one-year-old, is turning SIX. Can you take a minute to offer birthday prayers and wishes for him? Pray and wish that he is safe. Pray and wish that he is not hungry. Pray and wish that someone loves him and nurtures him. I love him from afar, and my next charity donation will go to him. That's not enough. It's never enough.
Let's pray him home.
"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."
I believe in God.
I believe in God.

- 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!
