It's not a courtdate, but....

In less than 2 weeks, i will be traveling to Africa to meet our precious little girl.  I have had lots of people ask how they can help.

Simply...we need prayer. 

Specifically:

Pray that God would prepare our hearts for the upcoming changes to our family, and that God will give us wisdom, discernment, and insight as we raise our new daughter to know Jesus Christ.

Pray for our precious child. That God will keep a hedge of protection around her and pray for her little heart to start to heal despite the loss and trauma that she has experienced.

Pray for my trip to Africa.   Pray that i have the right words to say at the right time and most of all pray that God's love is seen through me.

Pray for Micah and the kids that will not be traveling with me at this time. He'll be Mr. Mom for 10 days.  He gets my vote for Husband of the Year award!

Pray for a court date.  That it comes soon!!!!

And most of all...Pray that God is glorified.  This sounds so cliche, but it's what we truly desire.

'There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven"

Here we sit and wait....we just heard that we have a good long wait before our court date.  Doesn't look like we are going anywhere anytime soon. 

Please keep us in your prayers and for God to work a miracle in His perfect timing.

My prayer today:

O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.--Psalm 139

No news...

I wish i was updating you all with some fabulous news, but NOPE.  I have nothing.  We are waiting and guess what??? 

Waiting sucks! 

But through the waiting, i know God has His hand on our adoption.  We have had 2 deaths in our family and i can not fathom the thought of being half way across the world and missing those funerals. 

God's timing is perfect. 

So easily said...yet so hard to live.
