An excellent quote

And I hope it's correctly attributed, because I'm too tired to look it up tonight.

Compassion is seeing a person's needs in advance and doing everything within your power to minimize their liabilities and maximize their potential. - Dr. Tim Kimmel

Book Review:God Grew Tired of Us

I'm in the middle of this book right now, so I'm not really qualified to review it, yet, but I just wanted to say that it is amazing. John Bul Dau has every reason to be a traumatized, callous, horrible person, and yet he is a beautiful example of what every Christian should strive to be. This book is both a picture of the grace of God at work and a call to Christians everywhere-to do more, to try more, to both spread the Gospel of Christ and help the hurting.
Thank you, John Bul Dau, for this book. I'm very much looking forward to the release of the film on DVD this August.

I'm challenged, so please bear with me!!!

It's going to be a few days (ahem, weeks) before I get this template straightened out. Please bear with my lack of tech savvy (I can't say that word without conjuring a picture of Johnny Depp in my mind) and hang in there.
We are a family of six at present- Mom, Dad, Princess, Monkeyboy, Bobo and Lumpy. Poor Lumpy may have to have a name change now that she's not a baby anymore. I would hate for her to find this in cyberspace twelve years from now and realize that we actually referred to her as that....
