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.

Living proof

Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans...

I had plans of what I thought life was supposed to look like, however, the life I thought I wanted didn't end up being the life that was waiting for me.

Check it out:
Art major -> speech pathologist
Two kids -> FIVE kids
My mom here on earth for a long time -> she died at age 66
Living in Missouri, next to my dad, around the corner from my sister -> living in Colorado, 600 miles away from them

There are more examples... too many to count or type!

So, what's my point? As a believer, my goal is to live a life that brings Him glory. When I get stuck in my own vision, my own expectations and plans, I miss the mark. I have an amazing Good who loves me and looks out for me. HE has great plans for me that are WAY better than I could ever dream. I think from now on, I'll just look toward the horizon and enjoy the life!
