  1. O how dreadful. I was well liked by the boys so I got it all. Lunches, I’m talking about. For just being part of our huge group. We are British so we did not celebrate it. Or even know about it.
    I would not mind participating in donating but am very hesitant to leave my credit card details. I would not mind sending it in though by snail mail. I would decline joining in the celebrations over the oceans and let the young ones enjoy the scenery.

  2. I love how God has turned the ashes of bitterness into a blessing! Beautiful!! And what a great place to make it a blessing – the very “spot” (in another country!) that the ashes began to form, high school!! 🙂

    Good idea! And how fun it would be to be a part of making that come to be!! Praying it blooms into fruition!!

  3. Oh Annie, how beautiful!
    I don’t have a Valentine and sometimes it’s so hard. But the Lord taught me some lessons about satisfaction and I believe that His time is right. Sometimes it’s already hard again but I really wish to accept and love His timing. It’s ok. It’s good. It’s godly.
    I should start to live my beautiful life more intensive and I will enjoy Valentines Day to celebrate the love I have now!
    Be blessed,

  4. What a great thing you’re doing. I hope you raise all the support you need. (Great seeing you share at the IF Gathering, btw!) You go, Girl! All for Jesus.
    God bless!
