Well I must confess that I am a bit excited for this weekends services at our church. Our pastor is going to talk about adoption and is going to interview a couple who has adopted three girls from China. I am so excited as adoption is so close to my heart. My husband and I started an orphan care ministry there about two years ago and we have wanted to talk about foster care and adoption during a service for a while. God is moving and we now have an opportunity. Our pastor is going to talk about both adopting children and being adopted into the Kingdom. I am so excited as I have been praying for this opportunity for many years now. My prayer is that the people will be ready to receive the message the Lord has for them not only on adopting children or helping orphans, but being adopted into His Kingdom and what that means for them. On a more personal note, I am also excited because all of the details have been worked out with our county and we have been in contact with our Lawyer. All the papers are signed and I am just waiting to hear back from her to get our court date so we can adopt our youngest son. She told me on the phone this past weekend that it would probably be the 3rd or 4th weekend in April, of course I am hoping for the 3rd. God is moving in my life so much lately I can't even stand it sometimes. He is so Awesome! Anyway, I just wanted to share a bit of what is going on here in my life. Have a blessed day!
Good morning! Today is going to be a great day. The sun is shining, it is above freezing and I feel like some spring cleaning today. Last night I discovered some snow men we still had out for decorations, but no more. I don't only mean spring cleaning my house, I am also going to spring clean out my heart. I was reading heart of the matter online this morning and realized this last week my joy has been missing. I really want it back so starting today I am doing some soul searching to find it again. There has been some things going on in my life that I normally don't let bother me, but for some reason they have really weighed me down. No more! Today is a new day and I am not letting these things take a hold of me any longer. "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength", and today I need His strength just to keep going. Thank You Lord for loving me and never leaving me!
I am so thankful that I serve a God that never leaves me nor forsakes me. I am so thankful that when I am weak He is strong. I am thankful that no matter where I go, he is right there beside me. Sometimes He is the only reason I get through my day because He is carrying me through it. I am so thankful that He loves me for who I am, but doesn't want me to stay the same either. He wants me to become more like Him and will encourage me and whisper to me to stay focused on Him. I am learning that He won't yell at me from a distance, but will only whisper to me up close. I want to feel His breath on my face, and feel His arms wrapped around me. I want to be so intimate with Him that I never want to be in a place where He is not there. I want to be so much in love with Jesus that you can't tell me apart from Him. I am a royalty, and it is time I began to live like it.
It has been a few days since I have posted. Things has been crazy with me, but fun and exciting all in the same time. My daughter has finished cheering for upward basketball and I must say that I am so thankful. She has not been into it and we have learned this time that she just is not to be a cheerleader. So, now it is onto gymnastics, which she is really good at. Now, I have another blog and this month I am supporting a family in my church who is adopting. So through out March I will be sharing her story. As you get the chance, stop on by and read her story. As the Lord leads pray for her as many of you reading can definitely relate to her and what she is going through. She check's the blog and is excited to share her story with anyone who will read it. Anyway, I am back and I can't wait to catch up on the blog world and see what has been going on in my blogger friends lives.
I am a princess! I have been married to the love of my life for 17 years. We have been blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am able to stay at home with them and train them in the ways of the Lord. I throw some school in there too ;) I never thought I would be where I am at today, but would not trade one moment of my life. My kids are teaching me to slow down and to enjoy the little things again. I love reading, and am learning to dance like David danced!
