Lily's kids

Friday, January 3, 2014


How have 5 months already flown by? I cannot believe how fast time flies and how fast these kiddos are growing up. Sometimes as I listen to Peniel talk in her sweet baby voice I remember when I first arrived almost two years ago how tiny she was. It’s been almost two years since I first saw these precious children and how my heart has grown with love for each of them. They are precious. 

Sometimes I forget though... like right now as I have three kiddos crying because they can’t go play because they didn’t obey... How often am I reminded of myself in these little ones. I don’t get what I want and I throw a fit... and I forget that I just need to trust in God’s plan for my life. He knows each moment of my life. A Switchfoot song goes, “Why do I worry? Why should I freak out? God knows what I need.” 

And really... all I need is HIM. 

I don’t need anything else. God will satisfy all the desires of my heart. How beautiful!

Writing this took about an hour as I had to go back and forth between cribs and bunk-beds to calm down criers and pray and give goodnight kisses to sad little ones who have a hard time learning sometimes. 

Sometimes it’s hard for me to learn too. But I know that God is faithful to teach me and that all the lessons I learn are for His glory and for my good.

Praise God! Every moment is wrapped up in His hands. 

Rest. Rejoice! We are HIS!

In Christ Jesus,
Lily Fluharty
