Our Purpose... Very Simply

 Our purpose very simply stated is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts.

After living my life now for 56 and a half years the total sum of who I am or what I do or how I make my decisions in life come down to this. My purpose is to please God, not people. He alone knows my motives, my desires.

Odd post coming off of a week of emotions - joy watching my granddaughter being born and getting to know her, hope - wanting more movement with adoptions in Ghana, joy- being in the pool lots with the children- hearing " momma look, momma see" as they discover they can do. Pain- as I read comments from adults ( not always towards me) who should be able to talk without shaming or tearing down, realizing how much people even Christians , even I need you Lord. Thank you for this reminder that was on my fb page .

I always enjoy your posts of your kids. You are an inspiration and it's great to see your oldest children following in your footsteps. Adoption is a tremendous blessing. Carolyn
