I love sunsets! I can never get enough of this... It is so amazingly beautiful! It makes me want to fall to my knees in prayer and that is just what I do! Thank you Jesus!
Okay, I am driving myself crazy. We are waiting for an update on the girls. I so badly want all that I have asked for- measurements, pictures (lots of them) and answers to the questions we asked. I got a great list of questions from Mary Kate and then just modified a few of them to fit us and then of course I had to ask each one twice- once for each girl! I am a little concerned they may get tired of the questions- I hope not. I have been waiting very patiently and peacefully for the girls... until now. Our purposed time to travel should work out really well for us BUT you know I would leave tomorrow if they let me! Our update won't come for another week or two so I need to just "chill" and focus on other things. So adding to my thankful thursday list- I am very thankful for the opportunity to get an update on our two darling daughters in China!
I am also so very thankful that they will be joining our family. My mind often wanders and I think what will it be like when they are here! Will they love the sandy beach like Anna, the sunsets like their Momma, roller blading like their sister Sarah, or the warm weather like their Daddy?
I am especially thankful for the people in China that take care of these precious orphans. The modern day pioneers that give up everything that is familiar to them to answer God's calling. To go far away from home and care for those in need and for the unloved. Oh Lord, please bless them with your peace and with answered prayer.
I am so thankful to for the big girl in the middle who is helping us out at home and hanging out with her little bro and the doggies while we enjoy a little southern warmth! Thank you God for the helping hearts of our older children!
I am thankful for texting and cell phones! I can keep in touch with everyone in this family through modern technology! We have one in Australia, one in Denver, 4 in Florida and the rest at home. Oh and I can't forget! A BUNCH IN CHINA! ;-)
