Thank you...



One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you can't utter.
~ James Earl Jones


There are just no words strong enough to explain to you all how much your sweet comments, emails, words of encouragement and prayers meant to me (and to others as well). All I can say is God knew exactly what we needed to have the strength to keep moving forward. Often I have wondered, "God, where are your people?"~who would have known I would find so many of them right here through a blog?
So thank you to all of you out there who are living out the word of God. Thank you for your examples and for your faith. Thank you for saying "Yes Lord" despite the persecution you face. Thank you for taking a risk for the sake of another, thank you for giving without expecting something in return. Thank you for letting others see God through you.

Today my sweet husband gets home from Guatemala where he spent the past week meeting the children and staff we will be serving. He told me that "being there again made him realize just how much we needed to be there." I cannot wait to share more...

I am very much looking forward to hearing about your trip and all things Guatemala. My husband and I sponsor a girl in Guatemala and we'd really love to meet her one day.

Read the last post, didn't get a chance to comment. You and your family are in our prayers. I can relate to your comments about being adoption crazy, we have lost all of our family....but we are being obedient to God....that's all you need to do=)

I heard a pastor once say 'for some of us this is as close as we will ever get to heaven, and for others of us this is as close as we'll get to hell'. Hang in there sister! Consider it pure joy! Your family is a beautiful example of Jesus, and most people found Him offensive too.

Praying for you and your family sweet lady :)

When i started raising my own support I felt like the cartoon character that had run off the cliff...and was waiting for the author to draw the bridge or put the sign reading "oops" in my hand...4 years later that bridge is still strong! He is the provider.
