Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. Psalm 84:5

5 to 95

I have been struggling with how much food to feed our two foster sons.
They are always complaining of being hungry. If I give them a larger portion of food than anyone else (including adults) they still want more. In an effort to appreciate that they are from a different mold than my children, and therefore may really need to eat more than my skinny minnies,
I wanted to find out what a healthy, average weight is for a child of their age and height.
I found a site with a program to do just that.

Well-it's no wonder I have been struggling.
My boys fall under the 5th percentile for their weight.
My two foster sons are both above the 95th percentile for their height and weight.

                                        Psalm 139:14                                                                                              

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."

All the boys are wonderfully made-whether in the 5th or 95th percentile-and most of all-and most importantly-in the image of God!


  1. What a reminder that we're all different, and in your home all very much loved!

  2. What a beautiful reminder of how God always guides the way.

    My younger son is always hungry. Can you provide the link you found?

    I would be interested in knowing where he falls.
