Answered Prayers and God Knows

First things first!!! I must share that God answered both of our prayers this week. Never did I think he would do so, so quickly and never did I think He would be so amazing in doing so.

We ordered a stroller and were able to get it for close to $100 off the price. This is for a brand new stroller, not used. The only downside is that it is backordered until June 20th. God is good though and we can and will survive in our wait for this stroller.

We also found a van. It's kind of a long story (one that I won't share all the details here right now), but we got an amazing van at an incredible price.

Thank you for your prayers. :)

I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.
Isaiah 49:15-16

Today this verse was absolutely a need for me hear!! Without going into details, we just ask for prayers, specifically this weekend, for us in regards to the adoption. We know right now that God will not forget us, He has us, our very names, engraved on His hands. He even has this little babe's name engraved in His hand. Amazing verse isn't it? It also is amazing to remember when you were again turned down for an adoption grant. :( Today we received a letter from Help Us Adopt saying they received so many applications and could not fulfill them all. Chris asked one question of me when I called to tell him, "Why? Why do we keep getting turned down?". I told him I don't know, but that God does know. There is a peace in knowing that. Even more so when you go, just a few short hours later, and read this verse about God not forgetting us.

Nope, God didn't forget, not if He had me read that verse, not if He answered our other prayers. He has us engraved on His hands, and I rest in knowing that He knows.
