identity blending

James 1:26-27 (The Message)

Anyone who sets himself up as "religious" by talking a good game is self-deceived. This kind of religion is hot air and only hot air. Real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world.

as of late i have been pondering how i can combine my skills, personality traits, spiritual gifts, values, dreams, and passions and ironically well not really ironically, because it totally was a God thing, this past week at our Financial Peace class the lesson was about just that... blending our strengths!

i still have yet to figure out how to make that come into fruition here in the states, but ultimately what would be my dream.... opening a baby orphanage like the one mentioned in this video! saving the lives of little babies who have been abandoned, thrown out, tossed in a latrine, neglected, starved, infected, and betrayed of love. being a mother, i do not know how any of these mothers would be able to do such a thing, but desperate times make desperate people do desperate things... oh how i long to cuddle them in my arms and pray over them, sing to them (no i cant sing, but i can make a joyful noise unto the Lord), nurture them and make them well again. so here is my heartbeat
