God's Plan For Us

This is our journey - God's incredible plan for our lives. When we followed the moving of the Holy Spirit, He opened the windows of Heaven and poured out upon us blessings we never dreamed of! Indescribable joy!

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

I've been able to Skype with Cindy and the girls for an hour or better in the mornings and evenings. To say that things have improved greatly is an understatement! Body clocks are adjusting/ed, the girls are getting along and Wanda is feeling better. This has been such a marvelous journey and we're so excited to all be together soon. Thanks for those who've been praying for our family. God has really been at work in our lives these past 26 months. I'm so thankful we did NOT play it safe by staying warm inside by the hearth. That we were willing and sensitive to the Lord's movemnet on this path and how God has built a raging fire in our hearts for these children. We are truly blessed! Today marks the one year anniversary of our Gotcha day with Elli. I would like to share what Cindy has written to her on this very special day:

Happy Gotcha day! Mama is sorry I can't be with you on this special day, but we will have many more Gotcha Days to celebrate together. You are such a blessing to me and I thank God for giving me such a special daughter. The moment I first saw you was such a wonderful moment and one I will always treasure. I had waited so long to see your sweet face and many prayers were prayed for you over those months before we met. I am so thankful God sent you into our lives, and allowed me to be your mama. I love you so very much. I am sending hugs and kisses to you and can't wait to see you again soon!!! I love you honey bunny!!!! Love, Mama
