Praying and Believing

Everyday, I wake up and I pray "Today, Lord, let it be today. Move mountains TODAY."  It is written in my journal every.single.day.  And I fully believe it will happen today until it is bedtime and then I do it all over again.  I know God can and will do it.  I have recently been praying for encouragers to push me along in this LONG journey and God has done that for me.  I have women that are speaking truth into me and believing along with me that this is going to happen today and they believe along with me that God is going to move this mountain.  And at every step, they are cheering along side of me.  Learning to surrender and just believe has been a huge work in me.  I am at a point where I am just watching God work and enjoying the journey He has me on.  Our girl is coming soon. I have no doubt.

Second Saturday

Every second Saturday, our church has an opportunity to serve.  This Saturday was working with Habitat for Humanity in building a house for a family.  I loved serving with this amazing group of people!

Happy 11th!

Clayton just keeps getting bigger and older.  Every year it hits me hardest with my firstborn.  I cannot believe 11 years have flown by since I became a mommy.  What once stood a tiny little boy, is now a growing young man.  He is going on his first mission trip to Peru this summer and I am thrilled for this opportunity for him.  It will change his life.  He got to go to his first youth event at church on his birthday.  Crazy....part of the youth.  We had a fun day celebrating him and he said it was the best birthday ever!  He got Firehouse subs for lunch (his favorite).  He got to go to Jumpstreet with the youth.  He got a lemon cake (another favorite), a new 26" mountain bike with gears, and Babe's!  Happy 11th big boy!

That would be 35 months of waiting down.  Almost 3 years.  Next month might be a tough one.  We have spent the past month updating our homestudy and our I-171h and we are hoping that this will be the last one!  I say that every time though.  There was a little movement this past month, so that brings me a little hope.  We are praying every day that it is our day for our referral.  I am believing that until my head hits the pillow at night that today is the day we will see her face.
