"Let the little children come to me." -Jesus

     When I think about the kids who do not have a home, something begins to stir in my heart.  When I hear about these places, my heart begins to beat faster.  And when I go and visit these places, I have a strong peace and assurance that the Lord is doing something!
     Larry and I recently visited 2 different children's homes in Coronado Costa Rica.  One is in the process of being built, and the other one already had children living there.  I took a walk outside and just spent some time soaking it all in.  I have had so many thoughts of what I imagine to be "amazing!"  It looks something like this:

      A place where children can call home.  Somewhere in the mountains, out of the hussle and bussle of life-where they are free to be kids.  A place to have a garden and live off the land.  Somewhere that may have a river or stream near by, and who knows... maybe even a school!
     When we visited the 2nd home, it pretty much matched the above description.  A few weeks ago the Lord showed me this verse in Isaiah:  "New things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you." 
     I am so excited to see what the Lord has in store for us and to be a part of HIStory!
