“Au Revoir”


When a child comes into our home words do not begin to describe how blessed we are to welcome them into our “family”.  Some are here for two weeks some for 6 years. Delidson & Manuel 25 Jan 09 (84) Some go home to be with Jesus and we grieve their premature departure though we know that their joy is exceedingly great.  Others go back to their birth families.  Still others wait till that one great day when they are claimed and claim for themselves a new family, a family that will forever be theirs.  Each “Good-Bye”, no matter how happy or sad the ending of their time in our family is, sears a mark into our hearts.  The mark reminds us forever of the love that we have known, the love in a unique Orvinsh, Darana, and Schneider leaving 20 Mar 10 (2) way that only that child could give.  A child’s love is like a thumbprint, there are no two children that love alike.  Each in their unique way they bond, share, shown, receive, and exhibit love.  When I child is aware of the love that is around and towards them they radiate love.  They share it in their smile, in their laugh, in the the way they wrap their arms around your neck, or hold the hand of their friend.  They encourage in ways no one can.  They comfort in ways no one else can.  They ease the pain in ways that no one else can.  God uses the innocence of a child in their unwavering faith in their closeness to Him to send His love to a hurting world.  To us.  We never forget a child who has graced our home and our family with their presence.  And though the bittersweet pain and joy of  their departure may fade as the days go by and life demands our attention.  The imprint of their love on our hearts will remain forever.  To every child that has Gwo Mama with Dutch and Lux kids leaving 19 Jan 10walked out our gates into a new life, some with eyes closed in eternity, some with eyes forward, some taking one last glance back we have sung this song and we sing it again to you, giving praise to God believing in faith that one day we will see you again.

Alexis Revercomb - Sparked with electric contecnion homey!!! I'm not an avid hip hop collector and that's solely due to my lack of appreciation for rap that's ain't smart. God, GOOD hip hop is like a drug. The beats hook you and the word play and layers of thought within your lines combined with the layers of music your Voice hugs and then plays with Needless to say, discovering Common Matter and Victor Shade today has made my month of October more exciting (i'll be able to financially support y'al's artwork with a j.o.b.3.) (so there's additional questions )If you and your compadres/compadras take the plunge into an east coast tour==I have well conncetec fans in key music spots in Charleston, Athens, and Asheville. The Dirty South esp Chucktown has a large group hippin' and hoppin' snobs! They'll eat you up and want to take (you) and your music home for desert.4.) do you ever battle using tongue and wit? if yes, i'm curious to hear who you have battled.5.) ***How awesome would it be if we could get You (and other H&H masters) into elementary schools for show and tell and then maybe some free-styling at recess?? What a positive role-model you would be. Kids love those dancey H&H grooves, but pop's lyrics are s&%^&*&( you know? we can open brains up and show that yes, it's cool to be smart or a little nerdy cause knowledge is power. Oh Dear! I'm not sorry for the short story I just wrote just a bit embarrassed. But it's worth it. Repeat after me: Ready? I, Victor Shade, will do my best, in the next year, soas to tour the east coast schools at day, and nightclubs at night. (good thing you're a super-hero)Peace and Love,Alexis LaBarge Revercomb
