Portraits

You matter because you are you, 
you matter until the last moment of your life
and we will do all that we can
to help you live until you die.

Oh, Debbie, you are so very talented!  I loved your recent blog entry about the Nigerian women laughing at you because you didn't know how to carry a baby!  I even shared it with my world cultures class (except the "no milk" parts... I laughed about that to myself.  A lot.)
You are a sweet breath from Jesus, Debbie.  Prayers for you to continue "feeding sheep" in the kingdom of God.

Oh, Deborah, those faces are so precious! I'm delighted to get to see them, the dear ones you touch every day! I enjoyed seeing your "setting" too -- even the hallways. Now I can better picture you in your realm. Bless you, bless you, bless you!

Is it strange to say that it's as if I can see your heart for these people through these pictures? And it's a beautiful heart...Lk 9:46-48. Love ya!

Thanks for the encouragement!

One of the nurses was asking about you today . . . she wanted me to tell you that Niger misses you as much as you miss Niger, and you are welcome back anytime you want to come.

Thank you!

Thanks Linda!  They are precious, aren't they!  

Just don't get used to the hallways . . . our new post-surgical wing is nearly finished, along with my new office and therapy gym!!

Deb. said...

Thank you!  As far as NG goes . . . they've already turned me down once. 

Deb. said...

HA HA HA!  I'm glad you 'filtered' it for the kids! :)

Thanks for being interested, and thanks for praying!
