I have a blog friend who along with many others started Water For Christmas. They partner with Charity Water. They are working on building wells in Africa so that everyone can have safe clean drinking water. It is pretty much amazing.
They also set up an Etsy site…check it out! Buy your Christmas presents while supporting well drilling in Africa! I love supporting a cause while accomplishing something on the home front (like Christmas presents:) Many people have done this with Adoption Wings and I am truly thankful.
“But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” – Habakkuk 2:3 (NLT)
“It is inconceivable to think that God would give us so much to do that we can no longer spend extended time with Him.” – Gordon Smith
I found this on another friend’s blog…ooooh it is so good for me!
It is set for Monday. I simply can’t believe it!
I am bursting with excitement. There is still a small chance that we could travel on Saturday. But I am believing that God wants us in Ethiopia! God is so good and merciful. It is only by HIS power that these boys will be adopted into our family.
I read this in church on Sunday and it has been with me all week. It was actually verses beyond what the pastor was preaching. I have to be honest, I wasn’t paying attention to him at that moment. I was drawn to this verse and read it over and over and finally had to underline it.
“Therefore, the LORD waits to be gracious to you and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him.” Isaiah 30:18
One of the lyrics from a song that day was…”strength will rise as we wait upon the LORD…”
Thank you for praying…keep it up because so much more needs to happen!
Role reversal happened this week. Lydia and Adie wore matching outfits instead of Grace and Lydia. Adie was tickled pink knowing she matched someone – can’t you tell from her face. I actually had to wash their outfits last night so they could match again today.
