Inspired By You Wednesdays

My blog is in transition until Cutest blog on the block gets back online and I can find a background I love. I did choose some Valentines colors for you which I must say look stupendous with the orange blogger logos. I'm such a techno idiot, sorry.

Todays post is inspired by each of you who recognizes the hand of God in your lives and blogs about it. It is also an invitation to pray for our family as we strive to follow the hand of God in our lives.

At our church Christmas party I was asked to read a story of my choice. I grabbed three books, two popular stories, The Grinch and the Night Before Christmas and one of my favorites called Room For a Little One. I ended up reading this sweet simple story of a stable who's occupant a large cow, welcomes each little one that shows up looking for warmth and a place to be comfortable. The last visitors are a donkey, a man and women who gives birth to 'The' Little One.

I've mentioned before in some of my posts that we have a neighbor boy who has a difficult home life and spends a lot of time with us. He has been a part of our family on one level or another for the past 7 years. A week ago his Mother placed him back in state custody even after being told that the state would not seek reconciliation and that it would be a permanent decision. After prayer and much discussion Adorable Hubby and I are seeking a Foster Care License so that this 'Little One' can come into our home.

Some of Adorable Hubby's struggles over the summer may affect the decision of the licensing board. So, I'm asking for your prayers that the Lords' will be done in our lives and in the life of this child.

Thanks for being the kind of friends that inspire me every day your posts remind me that we all have room for the Little One who bears our sorrows, heals our wounds and binds us to Him and to one another in love.
