Update: January 12

                                                                      


Well, it's pretty clear.  I have received TONS of
responses, mainly from women, who have acknowledged a need to have the subject of "Men and Pornography" come out in the open. 

Thank you to all of you who have given me input.  It was all very valuable and very appreciated.

SO...Since I need to gather my many thoughts and resources for a while, you can expect a series on this topic beginning in the first part of February.

PLEASE pray for me, as the enemy most certainly does not want his schemes exposed in the light, nor does he want people set free from this horrible scourge that is just not addressed as much as it should be, considering the magnitude and scope of its impact.

Thank you!

Well, we're finally out of an odd bout of sickness in our house.  One day last week, FOUR kids threw up in the same day!  Then they all recovered beautifully.  Then, after a couple of days, three of them came down with strep. 

At first, we thought it was a matter of the Salems getting used to the germs in Colorado again.  But then our neighbor told us she had the exact same thing.  Then a friend told us that, too.

Today, thanks to some meds and a lot of prayer, we are all healthy!  Imagine that.  God is good.

I am currently reading a chapter each night of the fantastic book Kisses from Katie, by a 23-year-old single woman who is in the process of adopting 13 young girls in Uganda! 

We just love this girl we never met.  She started her ministry in Uganda when she was just seventeen!

Tonight, I read a very profound statement she included in her book:

"Adoption is a redemptive response to tragedy that happens in this broken world."

I like that.  A "redemptive response to tragedy."  All adoptive parents out there, you are God's FEMA unit.  Only much more efficient! :)
