My heart hurts for this little one....
...when I first saw this picture on Pinterest...my heart literally tightened. All of a sudden so many scenes/pictures/thoughts of Ethiopia all came back to me and I thought to myself...am I doing my best to SPEAK UP for them...to help them?
I know its the end of November which means "Orphan Awareness" is over. Right?! You won't speak up for the orphans until next November. Correct? Hmmm.....Well, I pray that if you are reading this....that you won't let that happen. Lets keep speaking up for those who can't speak up for themselves. (Prov. 31:8) Lets help those that are in need. Whether they are thousands of miles away or ten minutes. I pray that the Lord will speak to you and make it clear on how HE WANTS you to serve those in need or how you can stand up for those that are too little to speak up for themselves.

I hope that you all had a blessed Thanksgiving with friends and family. I know I have much to be thankful for that the Lord has given me! I'm excited that my nephew most likely(and Lord willing) will be sitting with us at next years Thanksgiving dinner! :) Ahhhhh!:)

Soooooooooooo how are you going to advocate for those that need help? Just a little question for you to think about this week. :)
