Candace means: One who possess contrition!

what is contrition you ask?? Well..the definition of contrition is:  true purpose of amendment, arising from a love of God for His own perfections. Who is Candace you ask??? Good question!

Candace is a sweet little 4 year old girl that God brought into our lives 2 weeks ago. She is such a little blessing! Her Mom is in a lot of trouble right now, and her Dad is terminally ill. Her Dad set about to try and find a family that would be willing to care for her due to his sickness. A friend of their family suggested us. So we said , "Yes", we are willing, Lord!" "You are in charge of the timing of it! It will have to be your perfect timing!" And we know that:

 Psalm 107:41 Yet He sets the poor on high , far from affliction, And makes their families like a flock.

So we met Candace and spent time with her the very next day after meeting her Dad, then she came to church with us on Sunday, and then slept over Monday to Tuesday. She came for supper this past Thursday, and then will come to church with us on Sunday, and sleep over Sunday night, and stay for a few days next week. All the while we pray, and pray for God's will. Will you join us???

We even think she looks a little like Nicole and Rosie!

 She fits in like a glove, and so we just pray that God will allow us to love on her and her Daddy and show Christ's love to them both, "for such a time as this!"
