My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

Your mind is the garden, your
thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

the following is copied entirely from Jungle Mom's Blog. I cannot imagine the terror this family is facing. Pray folks. Pray. It's our best weapon.

I just received word that the 13 year old daughter of a BIMI fellow missionary has been kidnapped. Please join me in prayer for her safety and quick release!

Here is the message:

Jerry’s mom and dad phoned at 11:45 p.m. last night and said that Jerry and Dawn's daughter, Dana, has been kidnapped! It happened yesterday. Police and family are searching for her. They had just moved to the north island from the south island to work with another missionary. Dana went to the store to purchase a Christmas present. When she didn’t return, they went to the store and the owner said she never showed up. They texted her cell phone and a message came back that said “If you want to see your daughter again, you can pick her up at Christ Church on the 14th.” Other text messages came following that were very nasty. Please pray for Dana at this time … for her safety … for her safe return … for Jerry, Dawn and Justin. Dana is a scrapper and strong, even though she is only 13 years old. Please pray! It is 12 hours later in New Zealand.

Of course I'll pray! I never dreamed something like that might happen in New Zealand of all places.
