for precious words from sweet Abdiel, who told us about school and his family. He loves reading books about cats and mice and likes to read the story of Jesus’s birth in his mom’s Bible. I love to hear his thoughts and get his pictures. precious.

today I am grateful for an update on Abdiel (who is doing well in school and is healthy) and for his precious prayer for his mom, who has to work in Costa Rica to provide for he and his grandma in Nicaragua. I am honored to pray with Abdiel for his mama. Will you join us?

for a morning that I didn’t have to get up right away and got to hang out in bed with my snuggly pup…
