found this in my glove box yesterday-

i can hardly believe what God has done. i'm still a little bit in shock.
MY WHOLE WORLD has changed since i shoved that card in my glove compartment.
the girl who rode back in the van with her husband that night with a heart breaking for the fatherless had NO IDEA what was in store.
no idea that her God was at work on something HUGE. that He had been cultivating in her a heart for children in need her whole life to lead up to THIS TIME.
and that girl has CHANGED so drastically since then. just 4 incredibly short and incredibly long weeks ago.
....and still a work in progress....
when i get stressed out about the complexity of the adoption process i have to continually remind myself that this is GOD'S WORK and not mine. He will bring it all to pass in His perfect time and in His perfect way. and for His perfect glory.

wren is warming up more and more....

shaeya and tekoa are still friends....

the whole crew-

the kids are already getting in the mother's day spirit :)

and this is right outside our fitting :)

neiko is doing great in the crib and he is feeling a little better. praise Jesus for both!

crazy hair day today at school. i cut ty's hair last night into a mohawk. he is feeling really cool. probably will have to go before church on sunday though.....

things have been going fairly smoothly the last few days apart from a few minor disasters which included wren eating a third of a very large jar of children's vitamins and an unknown amount of toothpaste in the same day, and a stray cat we took in that spent 1 whole day traveling around under the hood of dave's truck and another whole day wandering the air ducts in our house.
don't ask.

"the world's way of pursuing riches is grasping and hoarding. you attain My riches by letting go and giving. the more you give yourself to Me and My ways, the more I fill you with inexpressible, heavenly joy."
-Jesus Calling

keep teaching me, Father.
i cannot live without Your heavenly joy.....
