I just had to share this....
every single night when we put our girls to bed each of them pray. Each of them pray for everyone in our family, for the children of Guatemala, Colombia and India...they each pray for sweet Varsha...for God to send her a mommy and daddy a grandma and grandpa. It is so so sweet to hear and Im standing there praying that one day Daddy will say she does....US. Only in God's timing!

Well this week they have gone to VBS at our church, last night..."Jesus" washed their feet to show them how He loves us and how we should live our life to serve others as well...and then he asked if anyone wanted to pray...GUESS who wanted to pray in front of 90 kids??? My Giovanna! I missed this but everyone had to tell me about it. "Jesus" said she prayed for everyone in our family, lyndsey and michael in the army, for a little girl named Barsha and so much...he said she was preachin....I started to cry! She loves to pray...they all do...but to hear that she wanted to stand up in front of all those kids and give her prayers to Jesus...just made my heart sing!

3 nice people had this to say:
