Today our Ethiopian daughter turns sixteen!
Three years ago she arrived hardly speaking English, today she is a sassy firecracker of an American teenager. Quick witted, serious about learning and ready for a good tease always. Joy unspeakable to her mother and father.
Let's remember to stand in the gap for our country;
on my heart:
our President : for godly decision making and for knowing the the quiet guidance of the Holy Spirit
for our military: for wisdom and strength of its leaders
for us-the people: for a stirring within each American to turn back (really) to God
for judges and lawmakers: an increasing draw to follow His ways and to honor Him
for our teachers: the ability to teach that doesn't follow the pattern of this world, but follows the pattern of the Kingdom. I pray for salvation for our teachers and that it would trickle down to our children.
