Noah was surrounded by people who wanted to dissaude and detract him from following God's call in his life. Noah acted in faith to God's call even though what he was called to do went against common sense and the "rules". Noah ran his race with the intent to win. He did not worry about public opinion. We can look at Noah's life for guidance when it seems we are the only ones walking a certain path; running an only course. We are not alone in our faith. God will always be there to guide and help through life's many storms and trials. An active and living faith can at times require actions that may seem new and uncomfortable, but the rewards are eternal.

One little monkey in the bed
The girls finally slept each in their own bed last night!
In the orphanages in China, the beds are side by side up against each other. Chloe slept next to her best friend who she calls Esha. Every night for the first month when we brought her home she cried herself to sleep longing for Esha to be beside her. To help comfort her, she slept in the bottom bunk with her sister, Raeya, and with me just until she fell asleep. After two months, I was finally able to leave her bed but Raeya was still required to be in the same bed with her.
Last night I was slapped with a double whammy of Raeya losing her first tooth and my little Chloe sleeping in the bottom bunk by herself while her sister moved up on the top bunk.
My girls are growing up and starting to loosen the grip on their mom a little.
Rejoicing and Remorsing?
REJOICING and maybe just a little bit of remorsing.
