wednesday night dream

i was surrounded by hundreds of orphane children, just longing for someone to love them. i had just witnessed a mother of 5 beautiful children die before my very eyes. holding the twins in my arms, my good friend courtney was beside me holding another baby and hugging a young child with her free arm. we sat in silence breaking out into random praying and cries to Jesus. my heart broke as sat holding these kids who had nothing in my arms.the one person that loved them was now dead. questions raced through my head.then as usual i woke up crying. looked at the clock it was 3:34 am... i couldn't go back to sleep. i sat awake sobbing and praying. wondering if this was something that was going to take place or just another one of those very real dreams. my heart yearns to be elsewhere.

im in a weird place. there are a lot of things i need to figure out. and a lot of things i feel im never going to understand. im going through some intense times. prayers are very welcomed and needed. thanks. -KB

Karen- Totally know the feeling of longing to be in another place, just gotta remember - To everything there is a season: a time for every purpose under heaven . I know a part of your heart is in Africa and soon enough you are going to find it there but for the mo, just be still and know that He is God. i miss you -Colleen

Karen - thanks for sharing your dream. The Lord is going to continue to let you know just when, and just how. The steps of the righteous are directed by Him, and you can trust Him : ) You're a star Karen, and I'm glad you're my friend.
