Chocolate brings a smile!

This is Anna. She the grandmother of one of the orphans that we sponsor. She needs a double hip replacement and can not stand straight and yet she is one of the happiest most joyful women I have ever met, she lives in constant pain but still has a smile on her beautiful face. Her eyes are the most beautiful shade of blue, which is so unusual, and they smile from deep in her soul. She tells everyone the reason why she smiles is because Jesus is her strength and her best friend. Yesterday in with the rest of the groceries from Project O was a big bar of chocolate. I have never seen her this happy before. It is amazing what a bar of chocolate can do!

Hi! Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. Your boys are darling!!! I have 2 little girls ages 4 & 9. Is the little girl in the beach photos yours as well?

I so admire your ministry! Sometimes I think my family may adopt one day. I'm not sure.

I'll come back and visit again!

the little girl is Amahle, she belongs to a girl who lives with us. Not mine but I treat her like she is! I love her so much.
Thanks for your comment.
