The Countdown is On!

Yup, that’s right, the countdown is winding down and there are only five more (albeit very long-feeling) days until court! Because of the difference in time, the court date will actually take place during our Sunday night.

 
Someone asked me, “Do you hope you pass?” Umm…Yes! We hope, hope, hope that we pass. However, we know this is all in God’s hands, not saying that failing court would be easy, but we trust that God has orchestrated this from the beginning and He isn’t going to bail on us now! We also realize that sometimes things that hurt is just as fully God answering prayer in our lives. Easy can equal worthless for me, because I depend on my own strength and not on the Lord’s.

We rejoice in God’s promises. I have been thinking of these verses from Matthew 7:7-11 lately, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”

 
Lord, we are asking! Now give us the faith to recognize you are giving us bread and fish, regardless of any court ruling!

 
We so bad want to know, that yes, Jada and Adia are officially “ours”.

Please continue to pray for the Birthfather as he needs to make a long trek and I can't imagine the emotions that must be playing through his mind.  Pray for his peace and comfort.  Pray for his children.  Pray for the salvation of the family. 

 

Two years ago today, this is what Jon and I were doing.
Yep, it is our anniversary!

I recently heard on the radio that the “honeymoon effect” is up after two years. Gasp! Horror! I tried to break the news gently to Jon. He basically said I don’t have to believe everything I hear. Whew. ;)

God has been good to us.

We are with you! Only a few hours until our files are all on that judge's desk! I am so thankful that "all His ways are just" and that He is the very definition of goodness. We will take His timing as perfect, because it always is - but are certainly hoping for a "YES"! :-) Would love to travel with you.
