sewing to orphans in Haiti
LaRee told me today that Christ's presence is almost palpable but Satan is sniffing and prowling around the perimeters too. The spiritual stakes are horribly high -- for nothing less than the minds and souls of children. Pray for the children, the orphanage, LaRee and my daughter. They come together in faith to create a chain of a larger Christian community leading the children to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Knowing my daughter -- an evangelical Christian -- she will keep her Haitian-Canadian child well connected with the a black community that's rooted in Christian faith. The family of God expands connections and interconnectedness just you can see below.
My daughter and son-in-law live three hours away. When Grandma LaRee and I visit them we'll attend church with them. This spastic old white grandfather will be dancing -- granted from the waist up in my wheelchair -- toddler on my lap, thoroughly embarrassing my teenage grandchildren. Hey, when in Rome ... go with the flow gramps! (Actually, if I was in Rome, I'd be at the Vatican in Saint Peter's Square or participating in Eucharistic centered worship.)
At any rate, Click on image below or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pk_1ZE7Rwcg&list=RDPk_1ZE7Rwcg for "I'm Not Tired Yet" by the Mississippi Mass Choir and soloist Mosie (Mama) Burks. Although the entire performance is 15 minutes and enjoyable, I direct you to the first 7.10. A foreshadow of things to come? I hope so. Grandpa's still got a lot of love and nurturing to give. I'm Not tired Yet. Whether Evangelical or Catholic, may Jesus Christ be praised!
