I look at the face of our little Polynsky and wonder where he is.
I sit here looking at the empty form letter that had been sent for our "easy no excuse" response to the Christmas letter he sent us. I'm so sorry I didn't fill it out. .. and send him the picture that my beloved and I had taken with our grands. I could have pointed out his little birthday twin. . .the lil' farm hand. He surely would have liked to know that we picked him because he shared the birthday of our lil' farm hand.
I look more carefully now at the information sent to us. . ..and read now looking for more information that before I so quickly filed away. His mom and dad are employed as farmers . ..and I think that might be a good thing . . .perhaps they do not live in the city.
The news coverage is nearly too much. . .380,000 orphans before the quake .
Nearly 300 Americans families and 100 Canadian families that had been waiting to adopt now wonder where their children are.
So many families are waiting for such crucial news of the children they hope to bring home.
The part of the Compassion letter that really makes me ashamed is the prayer card.
It says. . .your PRAYERS are POWERFUL!
So often I forgot to pray for Polynsky. I meant to pray for each sponsor child while praying for it's Grand twin.
The whole reason we decided to sponsor one child for each grand with matching birthdays was to make a difference in a child's life. .and we only did half a job.
I look at the Bible Verses that they suggest . . .and my eyes stay focused on the verse for Provision
Philippians 4:19 . . I look it up ..
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
I'm praying now Polynsky. ..I'm praying now.
