Love. I’m in it.

Until this year, I hadn’t had the privilege of seeing one of my close friends go through the entire pregnancy journey.

Suzanne and Aaron brought this little guy into the world about 7 weeks ago, and I just haven’t gotten him off my heart since.

Needless to say, I’m in love.

So thankful for the blessing of children. I feel like I am just now starting to appreciate and understand the beauty of bringing a child into the world and the absolute treasure they are. Watching Suzanne transform and seeing the Lord flourish areas of her heart that had yet to be opened before Wyatt Murphy made his appearance has been one of the sweetest experiences I’ve had in a long time.

I love being an Auntie, and I can’t wait for my siblings and friends to start having their own precious kids so that part of my heart can continue to expand.

Just wanted to share Wyatt with you all. He’s my favorite.

The Time to Let Go

My daughter, this is a time in your life when you must learn to let go: of loved ones, of possessions, of control. In order to let go of something that is precious to you, you need to rest in My presence, where you are complete. Take time to bask in the Light of My Love. As you rely more and more, your grasping hand gradually opens up, releasing your prized possession into My care.

You can fee secure, even in the midst of cataclysmic changes, through awareness of My continual Presence. The One who never leaves you is the same One who never changes: I am the same yesterday, today and forever. As you release more and more things into My care, remember that I never let go of your hand. Herein lies your security, which no one and no circumstance can take from you.

Hebrews 13:8

6 Impossible Things

“Sometimes I believe in as many as 6 impossible things before breakfast.”

-Lewis Caroll, Alice in Wonderland

Interestingly enough, I can name at least 6 things I did this morning that are impossible for 783 million people… (UNICEF)

783 million. Let that sink in.

My list of impossibilities:

1. I took a shower without worrying about my health.

2. I drank a cup of water without getting a parasite.

3. I ordered a latte without having to consider if it would make me sick.

4. I brushed my teeth and didn’t have to choose between that and my health.

5. I washed dishes and didn’t have to worry about contaminating those I love.

6. I came to work, because unsafe water doesn’t stop me from having a successful career.

How many impossible things did you do before breakfast today?

 Today is World Water Day, and because of a little organization called The Adventure Project and a campaign called typeTAP, last year’s World Water Day changed these lives.

They can do impossible things now too.

This year we’re hoping, praying, believing that the vision we have for seeing the water crisis end will be greatly impacted by the next 12 hours.

Every donation made here before midnight will be doubled by The Prem Rawat Foundation! What an opportunity!

Last year the Adventure Project community (that includes you) raised $23k in one day… (add that as impossible thing number 7). And this year the opportunity has doubled in size. We have a $25k matching gift from TPRF…

$50,000

In 24 hours.

Don’t miss this opportunity.

Think of all those impossible things you did this morning… impressive? Go ahead and turn yourself into a superhero too…

Tomorrow is World Water Day.

Isn’t it interesting how little we value a necessity that most of the world’s population goes without?

The Adventure Project is gearing up for our 2nd annual typeTAP campaign, you may remember last year’s post on World Water Day and how we were able to raise over $23k to create sustainable solutions for the water crisis around the globe. For a refresher, check out the results from last years water campaign here.

Check out this year’s campaign and consider being a part of what is happening tomorrow.

There’s a $25k matching gift on the line friends… anything you donate will be doubled.

Imagine the impact.
