He amazes me again and again!
As I have mentioned, we are in the process of renewing our documents for this adoption - which I have to say has not excited me in the least. But after yesterday, I know it's going to be okay.
We had an appointment with a social worker who is a new gal to our agency and for some reason I was freaked out about that. Now don't ask me why, just some weird thing on my part. I guess part of it was that I liked our original sw - she was the best! When she would do her home visits, she once brought over her chinese daughter to play with our kids. We all just loved her.
So yesterday, I'm all dreading everything - and maybe even having my own little pity thing going on because we have to go through all this again - I'm getting to something here, just hang on....
In church, we had a small prayer time and so I asked for prayer - the pastor jokingly replies that everyone needs to show up to our house at the same time as the sw in their underwear.
Anyway - the most precious man ( a good friend of ours too ) prayed for our family. I won't type it out here word for word, lets just say I was humbled.
We get home and I also shot out a quick email to Rachelle ( very cool adopting mom ) and asked her to pray for us.
Soooo, the social worker gets here, she's like totally cool, loves our kids, and we instantly fell in love with her !! Then we find out that she is good friends with my sister, and they go to the same church together. Hmmm.....I don't know what my major hang up was; why I was so worried about everything - why do I do that ????!!
Again, God showed me how He has everything under control.
She ( sw ) prayed with us, and by the time she was done I was a blubbering mess.
God continues to amaze me.
All these incredible folks were praying for us. Thank you. He is so faithful.

I spent some time this morning praying.
I try to do this every morning, but I must say it does not always happen.
Anyhow, where am I going with this? Oh yea- that I really want to improve on this; to bring my entire day before Him.
I always have the main things; this adoption, homeschooling for the particular day, my husbands safety at work (remember? He's the MAN) and that my actions as a wife, a mother, and a friend would be what God would have of me.
All throughout the day I am constantly mentioning "little things" to God.
How cool is that? That we can, at any minute- any where, talk to our Creator! Pretty amazing if you ask me. I don't think I can truly wrap my pea brain around that - that the CREATOR of it ALL, hears what I , little me, has to say!
I love it.
It's also so exciting to see what He is doing in others lives as you pray for them.
Great. I had something that I was going to say and now I've completely lost it. Ugh.
Anywho, I want to be someone who is known that I never did it alone in this life - that I brought it all before Him.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Happy New Year to all !
It's kinda fun to think ahead into 2007- think about it. What will happen? What changes are going to take place in your life? We have absolutely NO idea. None. Well, I guess if your pregnant, your going to know that outcome, and things like that.
I guess what I'm getting at is that even though we have no idea whats in store for us in 2007 - we should look to the future with excitement. Really! Embrace it.
For me, I get excited when I think about what God is going to do this year in my, and my family, life. Not necessarily does that mean it's all going to be easy going either.
That's alright. I know where my strength comes from.
So hey my cool friends; say" woo hoo" to the new year! Smile.
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
And hey, precious Stephanie in Alabama, Sweet Amy in Germany and The coolest 'pal' Angela in Arizona - we are looking at CHINA in 2007, aren't we????!!!!
May the Lord richly bless you in 2007!
(and now that my man reads my blog; YOU ROCK)
