Carson's new passion

Boy Payne

If I ask Carson what his name is- he says, "Boy".
If I ask Carson what his last name is- he says, "Peyne" (instead of Payne).
If I ask Carson where he is from, he says- "Gwamama" (instead of Guatemala).
Boy Peyne from Gwamama.

We are returning to Guatemala.

The second day in Guatemala Jonathan and I were planning our return trip to Guatemala. We both fell completely in love with the people and the beautiful country. We both felt so much peace, relaxation and joy from working with the children to walking on the streets. Consequently, we have now booked our next flight for early January so we can return to this amazing place. Anyone care to join us?

One more time...

Carson and I went to the wildwood boardwalk today after church for one last ride of the season. Carson had a great time riding the rides with his friends Carley and Joseph.

What a ham! hmmm- I love this boy!

This is for you my beautiful blog christian friend.


'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean livin''
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain..
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,

I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!'

Pretty is as Pretty does... but beautiful is just plain beautiful!

I can not get these children out of my mind...

My daily thoughts about the children we met in Guatemala:
Are they warm at night when their sleeping?
Did they have enough or anything to eat?
What are they doing?
Are they healthy?
Are they safe?
Do they feel loved?
When can I see them again?
How can I help them?
