Once upon a time....

Flash back to 1999, we were a family of four. Happy in our new roomy house and comfortable in our ways. A few years later, the Lord blessed us with an additional little package, little boy #3. Now we were a family of five and sure that would be the end. As time moved on, so did we. The Lord used the time that passed to open our eyes to His will. Several years ago, Bob and I individually heard the call to adoption. It has been a long "pregnancy", but during this incubation time, the Lord has brought us to where He wants us to be. Spring 2010, we traveled to Ethiopia where two little angels were waiting for the Lord's timing - to become our children. Now we are home and can't imagine life any differently! What a blessing to be in His will.

Galatians 4:5 says "God sent Christ to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as his very own children." We are just following his model. A Perfect picture of salvation.

Blessings for 2010

I am not sure what to expect for this year, but I do know this: God never lets us go! This morning in our church service we sang those very words: "Oh, NO He never lets go, through the calm and through the storm. Oh, NO He Never lets go, every high and every low. Oh, NO He never lets go, Lord You never let go of me!" I don't know all of what will occur this year, but I do know that no matter what happens, God is in control. He still sits on His throne in Heaven and He still Loves me! No matter if life seems good or not, He still holds me in the palm of His hand.

Concerning the adoption progress....we are waiting for the "be in Ethiopia now" call. While we wait, we are getting things in order, packing, well -- thinking about packing, etc. I was told (by a good friend who has also adopted) that this time will feel like forever while you wait, but once we get the call, things will move at lightning speed. So, we put on our goggles and strap in as best we can -- for the ride of our lives!
