I have mentioned a few times that I have not slept well this week. Part of it was because my girl has been sick. One night she peed on the floor AGAIN. Yes, again. Let's not talk about it. Those are the reasons I have had interrupted sleep. But I don't have a reason why I lay there with my eyes wide open and my brain swirling and twirling. Last night I was fed up. I looked through my tub of medicine for some tylenol pm. I was sore from who knows what and I needed to sleep. Problem solved. I found some of the Tylenol warming liquid. I have used it once before and oh my word. IT WORKS! As I lay in my bed last night my body was affected by the medicine, but my mind was still working. I knew it wouldn't be long before that went too, but for the moment I was stuck in that position with one thing on my mind.
I don't know this family, but the day I clicked on that link that took me to their blog was the day that broke my heart. His pictures. This Haitian boy is beautiful. His smile. I prayed for him last night, with a half asleep brain. But God heard my heart. I told myself that I would write something on here in hopes that more people will lift him up in prayer. I don't get much traffic on here, but I know that doing this is being obedient to my God.
Please pray for Ronel. Pray for his family. Pray for his paperwork. Pray for his safety. And please, if you have the time, visit this blog and see his smile for yourself. You won't soon forget it.
18I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
