In the morning O Lord, you hear my voice, ...I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.Psalm 5:3
It's morning Lord and this week I am faced with all sorts of doubts. I mean, we are taking a big risk. Even our social worker makes it sound like the chance of getting picked by a birth family is so slim (being that we have a three month old). However, you are still God despite that. You have laid it on our hearts. We know that in time, whether that time be short or long, you will fulfill that promise. You can see the end already and you know that it is beautiful. I can't wait to see it too God. Just reassure me throughout the wait. Help me to learn trust and patience. I wait in expectation Lord, knowing that you will fulfill!
Sorry for that little off shoot of my blog. It's just what came from my heart this morning. I strive to be raw and honest with all of you so that you can see what is truly in our hearts. This week we ordered our profile books, got the ok on our birth parent letter, reapplied for some grants, and updated our home study. A lot happened and yet I felt so scared this week. I needed to verbalize on paper (or the computer) exactly what God has for us. He brought me to this verse earlier this week and I have been clinging to it steadily ever since. ;)
Anyway, right now Daddy and Zoelle are off on a daddy date (which they try and go on each Saturday morning). I am relaxing while Meridian sleeps...speaking of which, is this not the best picture ever?!?
She actually wasn't sleeping in this pic, rather the sun was in her face. But still, you get a little glimpse into our life with our two daughters and how sweet it is.
Keep praying for us as we start the now official waiting process. It feels like we have been waiting forever, and we have, but now it truly begins. Pray for God to grant us peace and wisdom.
Have a wonderful day! :)
