Christmas 2007

We had a lovely day in Ottawa, IL hiking around Starved Rock Park. Enjoy the pictures. Jenn did a lovely job as the Storyteller in the Christmas play on Sunday.

Our Minds Cannot Comprehend It.

Who created God? My son asked me that question a while ago as I am sure many other children (and adults) have asked before him.

Some things our minds cannot comprehend, cannot fathom, cannot embrace... even our faith can be tested with these concepts.

My mind cannot comprehend how God will orchestrate the things He has shown me...I KNOW He CAN do it all, but the moment 'I' am added into the mix I feel overwhelmed by the enormity of His plan.

Meeting the children

Lunch time at His Embrace: No table, no spoons, no soap to wash hands...

Naptime on 'new sheets'. Four mats for fourteen children...

Mama Sara ~ the blessed one who cares for the children at His Embrace

Mukama Yebazi bwe!! Praise the Lord!! We are home safe and sound in Waukegan, IL once again. We were blessed with a beautiful white landscape on our arrival and it has been pure torture for Jordan not to be out sledding yet. Saturday when we got to the house we started unpacking and settling into our home again. We made a few phone calls to let everyone know that we were home okay and finally ordered the long awaited pizza from Pizza Hut. There was a two hour delivery wait and so it was almost 5pm when we finally ate dinner. We all decided a nap was in order and none of us woke up until Sunday. When we got home after Church yesterday and had some lunch of leftover pizza we all decided another nap would be just the thing for all of us. I woke up on Monday morning and headed to work at 4 am.
