because LOVE is a lifestyle

Just look at the expression on that little girls face!  Each of these little girls has a history that includes extreme poverty, abuse, abandonment or neglect.  Does anyone deserve royal treatment more?

I have a favor to ask of you my blogger friends. 
I have a friend {Amber}who is living, loving, and working with kids at the orphanage in Baja Mexico.  They are a beautiful family with two young children of their own.   This family is such a sweet, genuine example of Christ's love lived out everyday.    

These pictures are from a recent post of hers.   These dresses were handmade by a seamstress and the youngest girls at the orphanage wore them in a fashion show.  Each of the little princessa's had their turn to walk down a runway built for the occasion.  It is a beautiful post that captures little girl's being made to feel like the daughters of the King.  
Right now Saul is back working in Canada (and has been for quite some time), earning money for his family to live off of as they serve and minister to the "least of these".  Amber and the kids stayed home in Baja, Mexico.
They are an example of lives lived in faith and obedience without the retirement fund, insurance benefits, fundraising goals, or salary.  
 Today is Amber's birthday.
She has been holding down for fort for several weeks now and will be missing her husband today.  I can't image going it alone for that long.  I'm sure she misses him terribly, as do the kids.

This is where you come in my friends.  
Please pop over and make this mama feel as special as she helps these little girls feel.

The photos alone are worth checking out her blog.
Browse through her blog and don't forget to wish her a happy birthday!
