So much to post, so little time. . .

This post is dedicated to Shelby
(Shelby says my blog is only about adoption and orphans these days ~ I'll take that as a compliment!  I trust that God is pleased with my broken heart and incessant pleas for the orphan.)
Shelby's 3rd and 4th IEA horse show.
~ my first and second IEA show thus the first IEA pictures ~
IEA : Interscholastic Equestrian Association
This is Shelby's first year on the team. 
The girl is. in.  LOVE.
Better than a boy I suppose!

Katie. . .my companion for the 2 days and hopeful future IEA team member.

My youngest sister was in a terrible car accident on Tuesday.  Her car flipped numerous times - roof caved in - it was bad.  Amazingly and by God's grace and mercy alone, she is ok - in a lot of pain from numerous fractures in her mid and lower back, facing a surgery to stabilize a neck fracture, immobilized in a brace until surgery - but ALIVE.
 It is abundantly clear that God was with Julie at 2 20PM on February 5.  I am so grateful to Him for the protection He alone granted her during those horrific few moments.  Thank you to those who have prayed for her. 
Always wear your seat belt.
Without a seatbelt, I would not have my youngest sister!

And just because my heart is broken for the orphan and because not a day goes by that I don't think and pray for the forgotten. . .

It's what my heart feels but what I don't have the time or eloquency to write!
