Things Stirring

Happy Friday blog world!

It's been a pretty good week for us aside from the migraine I had.  I hadn't had one in a while, and I definitely didn't miss it!

But, life goes on.  Otherwise, I am feeling so much better these days and getting more accomplished.  

I have had a lot of interesting prayer time with the Lord lately, and we are moving closer to adopting I believe.  It seems this year is going to be a big year for us, with August being an important month, but I don't know how the details will play out.

We are waiting, listening, preparing, anticipating.

Meanwhile, I will have a junior next year and that means it is time to look at colleges!

EEK!  That just seems unbelievable!  And to think of graduating one and potentially adopting a baby or two...

Well, who knows but God how it will all work out, but I am determined to walk out His plan for our family.  I am resolute that I will trust Him with the details and not be anxious about anything!

I'm confident it will all be beautiful in the end.

We just gave our checks to sponsor our two students in Nicaragua.  I didn't get to go with the mission team last year, and I don't think it is God's plan that I go this year.  That is hard!  My letter from our sweet Deiling ended with, "I'll be waiting for you."   

I wish you could see these precious children when they see us.  They wait and look forward to visiting with us and those hugs are the BEST!  But, I have to do what the Lord leads and not what my flesh wants.

God even opened the door for us to sponsor more children this year, so there are even more connections to be made. But, I will wait for His timing to take us there.  I must be obedient above all things...even when it crucifies me.

Anyway, lots going on in my heart, but not sure how to articulate all of it today.  I'll try to write the full post on adopting soon :)
