One Thousand Gifts (Continued)

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphan sand widows in their distress..." 
(James 1:27)

I just came home from a "Foster Information Evening" hosted at our church.  I am so thankful for those who are willing to open their hearts and homes to children who do not have a home.  What resonated the most with me tonight was the comment that when you foster a child, you have the opportunity to pray with them!  What a blessing to be able to teach a child who otherwise would maybe not get the opportunity to learn about Christ!

Continuing to give thanks...
