Need to share a blessing
Yesterday one of the DYFS nurses was at our house to talk to us about three of the little girls that are living with us now. She also happens to be the nurse for the little guy that was with us back in Feb/March. Just so you don't have to look up my post about it, he came to us at 18 days old and was with us for about four weeks. I was very nervous about having an infant in the house but he became one of the biggest blessings for us and it was very difficult to let him go. Anyway, when we found out that this nurse knew him we had to ask how he's doing. She informed us that he's doing really well, walking around a little, putting on weight, and that he's really attached to the daddy in his household. This news made me realize that even though he was very little, we made a difference. It's not often that you get to know how you've helped as a foster parent. It's a huge blessing to know when you've made a positive impact. Thank you God. Thank you.
In the last year or so I've come to focus more on looking for God and Christianity in popular culture, so that's what you're going to find here. I'll write about my impressions of movies, television, popular music, books... really anything that is in the news or the popular consciousness. I'm not always on point, so to speak, but I am always willing to hear a differing opinion. So feel free to comment on anything that I post.
