OUCH! I got my toes stepped on! :-) I needed to hear this RIGHT NOW! You may not minister to anyone else, but I want you to know that you hit me square between the eyes! My husband and I are debating another adoption right now and I'm not loving him as I should through this! It's the first time in our 12 year marriage that we haven't seen eye to eye or at least close enough to make it work on something big. It's a big painful ordeal right now. Thank you for smacking me!

God bless you!

Well this is certainly a good spanking for us moms that get so busy doing good that we can neglect all the things right under our noses that need attention. I'm involved in orphan ministry, we are debating adopting one more child.......you've given me alot to think about. Orphan ministry is a huge calling on my life, but am I taking care of my neighbor? I'm not sure I even know how to answer that. I'm definately way more involved in helping orphans in China rather then working here at our local homeless shelter. But I don't think that was your point exactly?
You've just given me alot to digest, to really examine why I do what I do and if I'm doing a good job caring for those right under my nose.
Thanks for making me think.

I just got an email from the Urban Homemaker and I wanted to share something she had in her email. She lost her husband, who was quite young, to a heart attack just a few weeks ago. This is something she shared and I thought it was particularly applicable.


God bless you and yours!


You are an amazing teacher, Kerry! I thank the Lord for you and the wisdom He has given that I am gleaning from you.




Thanks. I can't even begin to tell you how amazing God works even through tragedy. (As I am sure you already know)
All of this is what I needed to hear...especially "The test of love is right now with those who are right in front of us. Don't ask God to enlarge your territory until you properly love the ones already in your land because more people and more places will just make you more responsible before God."

I could go on about how I found your blog or why this is important to me...but somehow none of it really matters.

So, Thanks again and God Bless you.
