For Your Entertainment, A Bullet Update.......

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

  • I have been keeping myself busy the last couple of weeks, trying not to think about where my dossier currently is and when it will finally make it Ethiopia?!?!

  • I found out yesterday that my Lifesong application has been given to a coordinator to begin the process of having it read through, so the decision can be made as to what I will be approved for? I am praying specifically for two things, but I of course appreciate any prayers that are said on my behalf. I hope to know something in the next few weeks.

  • I have been getting more and more orders for my coasters!! Praise the Lord!! Just another reminder that HE is in control and HE will continue to provide for this journey HE called me to and placed on my heart years ago

  • Noah is exactly one week away from graduation Kindergarten!!! Seriously my son is growing up way too fast for this momma!! He is getting so excited about summer break and I am looking forward to having every Friday off with him :) I have LOTS of fun ideas and short trips planned for us this summer. There is a great Children's Museum about 3 hours away from us that I plan on taking him to and of course Noah can not wait for the pool to open!!

  • I started a new summer bible study at church this week and I am SO excited about how God will use this to grow in my walk with the Lord. The study is all about how to study God's word, which is something I have always been interested in. I am toying with the idea of posting weekly updates on what I am learning, because let's face it, the more we know about how to truly study God's word, the clearer he can speak to us through scripture. I would love to know if any of you are interested in a weekly post like that?

  • A sweet friend of mine went home to be with the Lord very unexpectedly last Friday. She leaves behind a husband and little boy who is 2. I sat in shock when I found out on Saturday. I had just been texting back and forth with her a few days prior and just like that she was gone! While I know she is with her King, I am sad for her family who is left here without her. Such a hard reminder that we never know when the Lord will call us home. One thing I learned from her was to not stress about things in life, because God will always work things out, just as he tells us in his word. Romans 8:28 spoke to me a lot over this past weekend while I struggled to understand why her son will have to grow up without his mommy. While my friendship with her was short, she touched my life in many ways and gave me life lessons that I will always carry with me. I am blessed to have known her.

  • I have been going back and forth about a blog post that a few people have been encouraging me to write lately. Mainly for those in the adoption community, to help encourage those who may have found or currently find themselves in a situation as I was in last year when I announced that I was adopting. Please pray that I will have peace about my decision as to write it or not.

  • I am getting re-baptised in a few weeks!! More details on that later :) Just pray!! This is huge and a little overwhelming for me!!

That's all for now :) Midnight is drawing near and my alarm will be going off before I know it. Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday!!! Thank you to those of you who have ordered coasters!! I wish I could personally thank each of you!! Your support is a huge blessing to my adoption journey to bring my little guy home to his forever family!!
