Doing Nothing

What does "doing nothing" look like to you? How does it sound to you? Doesn't a day of "doing nothing" sound like something fun?? Like relaxation and cozyness? Think about how you would spend a day of "doing nothing". Curled up in bed, reading a book? (My choice probably) Sewing a project you've been wanting to do for a long time? (Second choice for me)  Playing games or doing a puzzle with your family? Going on a walk?

We have lots of options when we have a spare day to "do nothing". Those times are so few and far between for probably all of us that we cherish them hugely. For some children in Eastern Europe though, their life is full of days of "doing nothing". Julia N., an online friend I'm proud to claim, has first hand observation of what "Doing Nothing" looks like when you are a child locked in an institution in Eastern Europe--in the same exact country Katya was born in and is currently living in. Go read about what "Doing Nothing" looks like for a child in one of those institutions, and ask yourself, can we let that happen to Katya on our watch?! NO--a THOUSAND TIMES NO.  http://covenantbuilders.blogspot.com/2010/12/aarons-nothing.html

Please pray that the funds will come in quickly, that the paperwork will be able to be gotten through, that the doors will open so that we can get Katya before she too is condemned to a life of NOTHING.
