Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Psalm 82:3

What if there are children who will suffer somehow because I failed to obey God?
What if my cowardice costs even one child somewhere in the world his or her life?
(excerpt from The Hole in Our Gospel)

Adoption Update, Creative Christmas Shopping and some Holy Discontent

We learned today that the last document for our son-to-be's file is in the right hands. We also learned today that one signature is now required before we can move forward (which means head to court in Ethiopia). I won't go into details here, but this isn't as easy as it sounds. If you're following our blog, please pray that "she" will sign what "she" needs to and give her approval. Pray that once this signature is in place, "she" will be out of the loop from here on out, and that all the pieces will fall into place from here on out for not only our child, but for others who are still hanging in the balance.

And, since I'm blogging, I may as well offer an idea for holiday shopping. It starts next week, you know. If you want to avoid long lines, stress and sleeplessness, here's an idea to consider.

By the way...I'm officially a Lifesong for Orphans blogger (thus the gift you see above). See the link at the top right? Well, it will take you to other information on the site and maybe, just maybe, you'll find something there that will speak to you.

PS) What is your holy discontent? What is that one thing that MOVES you to action - the thing that shakes you at your core and keeps you awake at night? More importantly, what will YOU do about your holy discontent this coming year?

"Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow." - Isaiah 1:17
