‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

A Little Light, To Brighten These Dark Days...

Anastasia is positively blissful with baby Ariella around. Yesterday, when she was at our home, the baby's mom asked Anastasia to be Ariella's godmother. She said " You love my baby. I see you love my baby. I have no family here. You be my baby godmother?"

I'm sure you could hear the bellowed 'YES!" from wherever you are in the world...lol.

PS: That's a temporary tattoo on Anastasia's hand. She got it from a gum machine.

Ok, I've pretty much fallen in love with her, too.....

Anyway, even the worst of weeks can be redeemed simply by holding a newborn....there is truly nothing like it in the whole world....

And we have her until 10pm tonight!!!


  1. Kerri-
    I, too, believe God is working through you to help this family. Though you may not see God's presence in this situation yet, the lady does. She has now agreed to come to church with you and that's HUGE! God works with us and through us. You are answering His call and I am so moved by your involvement in this situation that so many others would have walked away from. Hang in there! It WILL improve because of your help!

  2. keri -- i love that you're so willing. that nas is shining. i love that baby's face.

    i truly hope that momma can get the help she needs. it breaks my heart that the people you brought her to don't get it, even in their professional capacity. their cold hearts and bureaucratic approach are not what fixes lives.

    balance them with you and maybe there is a good ending.
