While We Wait
I had a tough day, but it ended well. I am encouraged, I actually have a peace about things, I know God is in control, if you've read my blog before, you have "heard" me say that. This journey is an emotional one...and I have had my share of moments. I was able to talk to some friends tonight. We had a Boy Scout Court of Honor, my son was the MC....he did a great job!! After the Court of Honor Ceremony, we had refreshments and fellowship......God knew I needed the fellowship. Grace P., has been such an encouragement...she can tell when I am down. She has been a good friend, someone I can talk to about this adoption journey....you see she is on a journey also. She sent a couple of e-mails for me today, I am not great with words and I am not always able to say what is in my heart. I wanted people to pray...I wanted people to know where we are at, to know exactly how to pray for us......she was so helpful. I love her and appreciate her more than she knows. I was able to talk to another friend as well....I told her that I cried my heart out today(Thurs.). Reene', she is on a different journey, they are moving...across the country, for her she also had a rough day...we were an encouragement to each other. I love her and will miss her very much. I appreciate her. I also was able to share things with our Pastor's wife, she is a true friend, I have talked to her several times lately...she has had some words of wisdom for me, she is praying and she is also looking out for me! She has been a dear friend to me, she really understands. I believe we were an encouragement to each other tonight!! I needed the time with these ladies that I had tonight....I love how God puts the people in place to give me comfort, understanding, love and encouragement!! Someone said today that their USCIS approval was quick and they said "What a mighty God we serve"...very true....I can say "we are still waiting on our approval, what a mighty God we serve" I was reminded by those three special friends that God is in control and He has a reason for allowing us to wait...very true!! One thing I have learned while walking with the Lord is that sometimes I don't like the circumstances that surround me, but I am thankful for my God that does what is best for me...even though it is not always easy. We feel in our hearts, that we will be there soon, we are very thankful that God has put us on this journey. We are thankful for our little man Brian!! I am waiting for the day that I hold that sweet little boy in my arms...what an amazing day that will be......because of the amazing God we serve!! There are many other friends who have e-mailed me today, some of them on facebook. I appreciate all of your comforting words as well and I am truly thankful for each of you!! Our iPad2 giveaway is still going...take a look here.
