Our Anna

Last Friday Rob took Anna and Robert to see Mike and Mike in the Morning again. While there, they met a young lady named Natalie. At the end of the day, Natalie had some things to say about our Anna. I try not to write a lot about my children. I don't want to bore you silly, and I wonder if folks truly believe all I write or if they filter it through the "she's their mom" thinking. However, when someone else writes about my children, it's different.

Natalie had some beautiful things to say, and I am proud to share what she wrote. I hope it blesses you.

What a great insiration and blessing Anna must be to you and your family. IF we could all have that kind of faith and witness what a different world we would live in! Thanks for sharing with us. Good luck on all the renovations. I love doing that kind of thing, well except the payment part :)
IN HIS ARMS,

What a cutie. She looks a lot like her mom with all that spunky red hair.

Jan,
That isn't Anna. That is Natalie. I don't see a huge resemblance between Anna and myself or between Anna and Rob. She is sort of a delightful mixture of both of us that God used to create a masterpiece named Anna.

Wendy,
Anna has always been that way. On my other site www.jerrismunchies.com , I often wrote about Anna. One of them that you might enjoy is "Evangelism Anna Style". http://www.jerrismunchies.com/2001/anna.htm

I wrote that when she was about 5, nearly 6 years ago. She hasn't changed.

Yes, she is a blessing, a source of conviction, and amazing. Her name means "grace", and she is the epitome of it, but that is a story for another time...

Imagine being a parent barely able to pay bills and someone comes to your home and promises to educate your daughter and find her a job. You agree, hoping to give her a better life. Then she disappears, and you find out she is not being educated. Instead, she is a prostitute, a victim of human-trafficking, beaten and abused daily. Sounds like a nightmare, doesn't it? For 100,000 girls in India, this is reality. To find out how you can help, please visit Red Light Rescue.
