It's that time, again...

I’m back…But, just for a moment...I think…Ha, I’ll see how it goes…Welp, it’s been almost 3 yrs since I’ve blogged…I guess I’m starting back up because Kim asked me,  ANDDDD I have another journey coming up that’s a pretty, dang, big, deal, I’m told, but it’s not quite sinking in...

So first off,  my Little Lovely, is the most loveliest lovely I’ve ever come across…The Bible talks about "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Romans 12:2…Well, let me tell you, she has conformed to our family like no ones business…Actually she has changed the dynamics of who we were as family, and has made it so much better…She is healthy, beautiful, loving, sweet, adorable, bossy, loud, and most of all, a child born to bring glory to His name…As I’m typing this she is literally screaming on the top of her lungs in song, how "Jesthus died on the c-wross to swave us, yeah, yeah.” Then, she gets ahead of herself and makes up her own language because she so badly wants to sing a full song with words, but she can’t think of them fast enough….

The reason I’m back?  Little Lovely has 2 siblings in foster care in LA county…They are 3 and 4 yrs old…Yeah, you heard it right…I found out 2 yrs ago they were in foster care, I called up, told them who I was, and they have kept my name “on file.” When I found out they were in foster care I wanted them sooooo badly…God is so gracious to me, really He is…I look back today and think to myself, “praise Jesus we didn’t get those babies back then, I was a mess.” Emotionally and spiritually, that is…That’s a whole different story I probably won’t be sharing on my public blog, but, would be willing to share over a cup of coffee…The grace I’m talking about is, God has given me and my family is:  these precious babies are out of state in another foster home…Just imagine if they were in this state… We would be going through the emotional roller coaster we went through with Little Lovely…I’m thankful He cleaned my mess up first…But really, it is oh so worth it on so many levels…

Everything is worth it, isn’t it? This Christian life, or better yet CHRIST Himself…It’s all for His beautiful glory… That’s what life is about for me and my family…CHRIST is worth it, and I'm willing to carry my Cross for His glory...So really, why should I worry about an emotional roller coaster, or my feelings, or my heart or, anything else? He’s got this and He’s got me…

If you think of us, please pray…We need it, I need it…So, so, bad…I need patience, I need wisdom, I need strength, I need prayer on anything God speaks to your heart that I may not see, but He has shown you ...These precious babies are so broken and need so much love and attention…I’m overwhelmed that God would choose us to possibly adopt them…

"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.  1 Corinthians 1:18
