Every now and again...

someone special strolls into your life.

At our church there is an annual program that pairs up each child with an adult;

it's called "adopt-a-kid". The goal is to have someone they can each pray for, give a card to, and a million hugs, before long your families have grown to encompass the love of someone you might not otherwise have really gotten to know. 3 years ago Sienna was adopted by Miss Cleo.

(she so very much reminds me of my 'Nan' who is an angel) Our lives have benefited greatly from knowing and loving and praying for this amazing woman.

She has been in the hospital for over a week now, with her husband Mr. Ralph at her side.

If you believe in prayer would you please say one for Miss Cleo; she could use a bit of healing.


New this week at Paper Pretties
