Solomon met Meredith Andrews Today!!

About two years we sent Solomon Meredith's song "You're Not Alone." He wrote one day and said; "Mama, how does she know my heart and everything I am feeling. How does she sing this song about me??" I told him God had given her a gift and it was His way of ministering through her. He told me he listened to her singing every night to go to sleep. It gives him peace to sleep.

Well, today she was doing a concert for HIS Radio in Raleigh. We went to visit with her and she sang this song live. She winked at Solomon when she started and mouthed "This is for you." Halfway thru the song, Solomon lost it and so did I! Then Meredith did too...listen to the interview HIS Radio did as a result. The LORD is so good and so gracious to bring Solomon together with the lady that has been singing him to sleep every night for the last two years. ONLY GOD could have orchestrated all of this...HE is in the details of our lives. To HIM be all Glory Honor and Praise!!

Extreme Kolfe Orphanage Makeover. This is a kindred spirit of mine Becky and her wonderful team of volunteers. This is another project at Kolfe that has totally transformed it since we were there three years ago. Thank you to all of you who have blessed our boys so much. They are all such special boys and we love them so very much.

Children's Hope Chest
is also planning on building a new dorm. They have a matching grant fund raiser going on right now to complete this project. They need to raise $12,000. If you are interested in investing in the Kolfe Orphanage, please contact them and let them know we referred you. We are all working together for the blessings to be poured on the precious boys that still call Kolfe home.

Solomon is doing great and fitting in our family like a glove. He is learning how to swim with 90+ temps. We are spending a lot of time in the pool. He is loving everything we feed him and hasn't disliked anything yet. He spends all day with our crazy bunch laughing and playing chess, cards and with his new phone. We are working on getting his health and dental insurance and everything ready for school. He has the most beautiful smile on his face most of the day!! I am still pinching myself and can't believe he is really here.

I am also making a priority of writing the book. My prayer and goal is to have a draft complete by January. So much going on here. The Lord gave me this verse yesterday that has comforted me so much...

"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. HE will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no on can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."

He is giving me the strength to accomplish HIS will in my life. I honestly can't believe this is my life!! Blessing to all!!
