Please pray for the people of Haiti

Parenting...whew..the most challenging thing I have EVER done. Having a 2 1/2 year old is awesome. What a great time of her life. Learning, growing..and I mean growing! Lydia is such a wonderful blessing...we can't imagine life without her. What does that have to do with the title of my post....everything!

Before her nap time (and nigh-nigh bedtime) we pray. During those prayer times we pray for others. Since the devastating earthquake in Haiti, I have been trying to teach Lydia why we pray for them. Yea, like I had "nothing" else to do... :)

Well, she saw a lady crying on TV from Haiti (I have been a bit leery of having her watch any of the coverage because it has been pretty graphic) and she said, "Mama, girl boo-boo. Boo-boo on knee." Then she started rocking her arms side to side (like she had a baby in her arms) to comfort her. I asked her, "Is that how you would comfort the lady?" She replied, "Ah-huh." I then began to explain to her that the lady had a big boo-boo on her head and that we need to pray for the people of Haiti. I told her that lots of people have boo-boo's and they need God's help.

So, now, every time we pray, we pray for the boo-boo'd people of Haiti.

I know that there is HOPE in Christ...and I am glad that my daughter knows that too. That nothing is too difficult for Him. Oh, the faith of a I need that myself.

Please continue to pray for the people of Haiti...please help in anyway you can...God bless.
