At times I can do nothing but...PRAY.  

Taylor missed the bus that was to take him from the Homeless Shelter to the Community Center where he was to stay from 9:00am to 3:00pm.  He is not allowed back in the Shelter until 3:00pm.  He has no money and made a collect call to us asking us to bring him money for food and take him from Anaheim to Santa Ana.  I had to say a prayer and tell him "No."

Our actions have consequences and he needs to learn this.  Tough as it is.  Having Taylor removed from our home has taken a toll on the other 3 kids.  They already miss Taylor and do not understand.  Trevan thinks that if he is naughty we may take him and drop him off to live in another home, like we did yesterday with Taylor.  They know Taylor has issues but at the tender ages of 5 and 6 have no comprehension of addiction and mental illness.

I told Trevan and Turner they can pray for their brother to be healed.  I was so thrilled this morning when I got the email from the author of this new book - "This Little Prayer Of Mine".  My boys have been learning to pray at Kids Small Group at Church and they are great little prayer warriors.  I am so anxious to get this book for them.

A Travel Guide to Heaven

Prayer will be a great source of comfort for us as we take yet another journey with our prodigal son, Taylor.  

"The son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you..." Luke 15:21 

We pray that the Lord returns our son to us - the fair haired blue eyed boy - the one who wanted to serve Jesus and become a Pastor when he was just 8 years old.  Nothing is impossible with God - we know this and will cling to this promise as we take it one day at a time... 



Jer 29:11 (NIV) "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." ...
