February Number

In all honesty, I really didn't think I would even have a February number.  I thought we'd be celebrating a referral by now.  But apparently God's plans are not our plans.  I really can't complain...because I know with every ounce of my being that he has our daughter hand-picked for us!  I just never imagined we'd only be at this point right now.

"For the revelation awaits an appointed time, it speaks of the end and will not prove false.  Though it linger, wait for it, it will certainly come and will not delay."  Hab 2:3 (NIV)

I have that verse on the chalkboard in my kitchen right now and it is NOT coming down until I have a picture of our daughter to display!  I need to remind myself of that TRUTH every day and PRAY it and BELIEVE it.  It's not always easy, but I don't exactly have control over referrals now, do I?  But until I DO have news of a referral to share, I have a framed picture of Africa with our current number on it...which as of TODAY we are now unofficially number.....


Pray with me that our turn comes soon.

Hi! I wanted to stop by and tell you I continue to think about you and your family. I know this is so hard for you, but you will get through it.

I have had no luck signing into bbc - though I have tried MANY times. Please tell everyone there I am thinking about them as well. (I might have to just get a new login!).
