Nothing is going to get better. It's not.”

Love & Joy Are Always Here

God is love.
God is joy.
God is here, so also is love and joy.
Every day.  Even on hard days.
In the midst of sadness and suffering, I can always see love and joy.
What a gift.  What a blessing.

They are nannies.  Caregivers.  Friends.  Prayer warriors.  My sisters in Christ.

Lunchtime at the Rescue Center. 
No bellies continually aching with hunger.
They will be fed, they know.  They trust as they wait. 

Food for their bellies.
Love for their hearts.
Both are essential to fill a child.

Thank you, Lord, for all the good you give. 
In all the trials we find ourselves in, we know You are right here with us.   

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."  Romans 8:28

Hi Allison, Can I have permission to link a couple of your cute pictures of the kids and nannies wearing pillow case dresses and nanny aprons to the Facebook page "Sew for Real Hope for Haiti"? Christi
