hum...

Hi Friends,
I want to share with you something my girls have been doing, it just makes me realize how blessed I am.
For a little while now, my girls have had something they call a “secret family”.
Well each year I get a small calendar and we go through it and put a name on each
Week through out the year.. Each month they can see who is on the list for prayer, we call it a prayer calendar. Each week is a different family,
Sunday we pray for the family as a whole, Monday we pray for the dad, Tues. we pray for the mom, Wed. the children, each person gets a day, it can sometimes go into two weeks, but each member of the family has their own day. As well as each family their own week.
If you want detailed explanation on how to do this, ask, I’ll be glad to show you how… It is a small “tradition” we have started and hope to share with others…
Well the girls have done something similar… they have picked a family and been praying for that family for a month… What an awesome blessing to mommy when I found out… It helps me realize that I am doing what God would want me to with the girls… They recently asked if they could start getting address of their secret family’s so they could send cards or colored pictures to them… so if you read our blog, or just pass by and leave a comment, or already know us, don’t be surprised by extra mail….
I have seen a change in the girls in the last few months, and am so glad I can see how God is working in their lives…
As I said earlier, they are so excited about going to the hospital Christmas eve, to pass out toys and books and cards to the kids on the pediatrics’ floor. They have started making the cards and want to make sure to have extra, just in case there are siblings there too…. Thank You Jesus for such sweet girls. What a honor to have the privalege to “bring them up in the admonition of the LORD. ”
Hope that you all have a blessed week….
Pay it forward… Do a good deed for someone this week…. Bless them, as God has blessed you. (O:
Much Love and Prayer’s,
Lori and girls

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm so glad I stopped by yours. What a blessing to read what God is doing in the lives of two young girls. What a great idea to have a prayer calendar. We have one for our church that comes out every month but I have never really thought about including my children in praying for them. I will definitely be back to read more. Happy Thanksgiving.
