It is set for Monday. I simply can't believe it!

I am bursting with excitement. There is still a small chance that we could travel on Saturday. But I am believing that God wants us in Ethiopia! God is so good and merciful. It is only by HIS power that these boys will be adopted into our family.

I read this in church on Sunday and it has been with me all week. It was actually verses beyond what the pastor was preaching. I have to be honest, I wasn't paying attention to him at that moment. I was drawn to this verse and read it over and over and finally had to underline it.

"Therefore, the LORD waits to be gracious to you and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him." Isaiah 30:18

One of the lyrics from a song that day was..."strength will rise as we wait upon the LORD..."

Thank you for praying...keep it up because so much more needs to happen!
