Falling Into Place...

This last week has been one filled with excitement, happiness, and joy! It seems as if everything we have been waiting for has been (FINALLY) falling into place.

Through faith and patience, you will see God’s promises come to pass in your life.

We have been spending the past week working on our adoption book and it has been so fun reminiscing about our childhood, wedding, vacations, etc.

One of the agencies we plan to work with has been in touch with our Social Worker and I actually dropped off our home study to them yesterday.

If you will stay in faith, God will always complete what He started in you.

I had a terrible time sleeping last night because I am so excited to be completing our application with this agency T.O.M.O.R.R.O.W!!! We will officially start the adoption process at 11:00 a.m. when we meet with this agency.

Please say a prayer for us as we start this is our dream come true.

“Get ready! This is the day the Lord will give you victory!”~Judges 4:14

The Next Step...

David and I attended our first Adoption Orientation a few nights ago...and to say it was fabulous, is well, an understatement! It is almost unreal to think that within a year or a year and half, we could have our very own baby...complete with a sweet nursery, late night feedings, coos, cries, onesies and burb cloths...sounds like HEAVEN to me!!!

I really had an overwhelming feeling that our dreams are just around the corner. It's been a long time since I've had this confidence...and it feels so good.

We had our social worker over tonight to finalize our update of our Home Study, since it's already been a year since we obtained it. We asked her several questions and again had a great feeling that our reality will soon involve a baby.

Our next steps are to put in our applications with a few agencies...we already have a few picked out. AND start to work on our Life Books. I plan on visiting Shutterfly this weekend to get started.

It's never felt better to take the next step than it does right now!

Waiting Here for You...

I have had a recurring theme on this blog lately...WAITING!

And just like He always does, God put this song in my path this week. It's called Waiting Here for You and  it's  just FABULOUS!!!

The VERY first line of the song had me hooked!!! Let those mountains MOVE!!!

Although I was hoping to enjoy my Spring Break last week, the news that yet again I needed to wait really got me down. I KNOW that waiting until the summer would be better and less stressful, waiting until my body has healed even more would be the ideal situation, and waiting to save yet more money for the procedure would be perfect. But that word WAIT just kept ringing in my ears. But I am trying my best to realize that this is only a STUMBLING block in this marathon that I WILL FINISH!

I read this devotional this morning and it gave me the peace that I needed...

If you're outside walking and see something that could cause you to trip and fall, maybe a rock or a stick, you probably don't make a big deal about it and just go around it. However, if you are distracted, not looking where you're going, or if it's too dark to see, that same object can become a stumbling block.
Friend, in our spiritual journey, the enemy has strategically placed all kinds of stumbling blocks in our paths. When we make the Word of God our number one priority, it helps us to move forward with our eyes wide open. His Word lights our path and helps us see clearly where to step. When we love His Word, we keep our peace and avoid stumbling. Remember that the most important thing you can do is take time to read and meditate on His Word. His Word is life and strength to your body, and it will protect and direct your every step today!

"Great peace have they who love Your law, and nothing can make them stumble" ~Psalm 119:165

Nothing will make me stumble...
