Our Little Friend

A few months ago I posted a few pictures of my kids visiting our sick little friend in the hospital.

This is her picture now.

See how much she has filled out? And her huge smile? For a while there, we really didn't know if she would survive. Now she is thriving, back at her home, an orphanage not too far from our house.

We often like to go visit our friend and her "family" there. The children always wave enthusiastically when we drive past. We beep and wave back.

A few days ago we were there. At the prompting of her housemom, she quoted Psalm 23. She smiled the whole time, sheepishly moving her foot in circles on the floor. When she got to the words, "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. For You are with me," my eyes teared up. She HAS walked through that valley, and the Lord has proven Himself faithful to her. You can see it on her face.

Thank You, Jesus, for touching our little friend!
