It's a Beautiful Thing...

God's Love that is, and we got to witness it in action! Last weekend, we had the privelege of participating in a "love" project. You see we have these amazing friends, whom have heard God's call to adopt over and over again. They are being His hands and feet, caring for the orphan, giving children a mommy and a daddy. This Love Project brought together God's call ..."[27] Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after* orphans and widows* in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.* James 1:27. In short, this project helped a widow with repairs on her home while allowing this family to earn funds for their adoption.
It was a Beautiful Thing! We saw a church come together to help...not only were there physical workers, but there were many people behind the scene: babysitters, food servers, food preparers, and people in prayer for everyone involved. The hardwork alongside many of God's faithful filled our hearts with joy. Wow! God's glory shining through!
If you are interested in reading about this family and there story, check out there blog:
You can also take a look at the fundraiser they are hosting now (they are very close to travel and will be bringing home two beautiful little girls soon!).

My Handsome Hubby hard at work

A beautiful helper

The Yard Cleanup Crew
The Siding Crew
Garrett was a part of the Yard Crew...Hard Work!

Lots of yard work

These guys helped a little here and there, but they had more fun playing together

Mia (and Levi) spent most of the day with the babysitters. She was "worn out" from playing with the babies
