Sacrifice


Today we said good-bye to my mom for 9 months!   She has answered the call of God on her life and is going to spend the next 9 months in an orphanage, pouring herself out every single day.  

Today she said a hard good-bye to 8 grandkids who adore her.   It was so sad to watch our kids cry from the bottoms of their hearts for their mamaw.  She is the best mamaw there is.  She's the kind that gets down and plays with them, and really invests in their lives.  It was really hard on them and her.  At the same time...it's so exciting!  She's going to be meeting two of her grandchildren for the first time.   It's exciting that all of the children in that orphanage will get to experience that love that she has to give.     I'm thankful that my kids have a godly example before them.  Someone who is willing to sell their STUFF and sacrifice being with the ones she loves, to go and show the love of God to children across the world.   

Please pray for her.  It's not going to be easy.  If you would like to give or any  more information check out    http://feedingtheorphans.com/   or    http://lolacrain.blogspot.com/
