A Hope That Does Not Disappoint

I found this stanza of a hymn referenced on a friend's sister's blog, and I cannot get it out of my head. It is resonating with my soul.
     "Come and find the quiet center in this crowded life we lead, 
find the room for hope to enter, 
find the frame where we are freed; 
clear the chaos and the clutter, 
clear our eyes that we can see all the things that really matter, 
be at peace, and simply be."
- Shirley Erena Murray

      This is Johnny.
                  Yesterday Johnny was an orphan. Today he has a home.
Thank you Karris and Danita. (
May the Lord continue to bless you and keep you
and keep all those you are mothering with the precious
love of Christ safe from harm. 


  1. It's a small, small world. We have supported Danita's children for many years. God is good all the time.

  2. My former student,Karris Hudson, has been a missionary with Danita's children for almost 10 years. I cannot believe how close the ties are that bind us to Christ. It is sweet to think that you have been praying for Danita's ministry at the same time that I have been praying..our prayers wafting up as a sweet fragrance before the throne of the Great I Am. Love you!

  3. Thank you for posting this! Johnny had his surgery today and is doing good, but he is in a lot of pain. I have been messaging with Brittany, our other missionary and one of my best friends, while she has been at the hospital. Just today, a lady died right next to her. There are children suffering with amputated limbs. I told her that these people have crowns in Heaven that I really do not even feel worthy to touch. Thank you for your support and your prayers. Mrs. White, I love you so much and I am so thankful our paths crossed!

  4. When you see Johnny next, please whisper to him that his picture is being carried in the hearts of people everywhere. I am praying for him to find relief from his pain. Let us know of any specific needs that you have. Blessings to you, Karris and much much love!
