Make A Wish

You know how when you blow out your candles on your birthday cake and you make a wish?

On May 21, 2010, Kevin blew out his three candles on his birthday cake. He felt rotten from all the fluid around his heart. ROTTEN. But he managed to blow out those candles.

I didn't tell him to make a wish.

But I think he did it anyway.

And today...

June 27, 2010....

His wish came true.

Miss Pattycake came to his house.

She held him.

She sang to him.

She prayed over him.

She made his day.

And she crept her way down into our hearts even deeper!

(Thank you Clark family, Mrs. E. and Kylie, Nanny & Papa, and even Miss Pattycake's MOM who were able to share in our "Bubblin' Joy" today!)

Miss Pattycake, WE LOVE YOU. Words, Butterfinger cookies, or even decaf coffee could never be enough to tell you how much we appreciate your sacrifice to spend some time with us. We know the Lord orchestrated every detail of our day with you, and so we pray He will BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY for His love that you poured into each of us today. May your ministry grow and grow, continuing to bear fruit for His Kingdom! We will not cease praying for you!

That's SO exciting! I had only heard of her through your blog, but we did alot of her songs at Bible School this year, and I love them all. I'm so glad Kevin's "wish" came true!

New follower of your blog! My husband and I want to adopt a bunch of kids one day, and I love reading the stories of people who have already taken that leap of faith! Thank you for letting random people into your inspiring lives!
