Soooo...it's been a bit quiet......quiet because we are looking over different situations, praying, putting up quick profiles (but Tracie has our real one done now). Making contacts, praying some more.....staying up until 3am making goodies for our bake sale- fundraiser. Thinking this will be worth every ounce of sweat for our sweet child out there somewhere.
Please continue to pray with us!!!! It is sooo hard putting your heart out there several times and each time wondering is this the one God? And then being told no, or ignored all together, or ........still waiting.........
I know a lot of you know what I am talking about. Appreciate your prayers as we journey to our next child!

It is the kind thing we did for our sick neighbor- in MAY,
it is the child we support through an organization so they can have food and basic health needs- all year long, it is the time we take to teach Sunday School- all year long,
it is the kindness in our hearts as we Gladly wait in line at the grocery store and the rude person in front of us is caught up in the moment and snaps at you- today,
it is the forgiveness in your heart for the child who just couldn't help themselves for the millionth time......daily.
My friends we can't put Christ back into Christmas because HE NEVER LEFT! HE IS HERE for YOU ALL THE TIME 24/7/365!!!!! He is the baby in the wooden manger who came to grow up in perfection and DIED FOR YOU ON THE TREE! So you could be HIS FOLLOWER!
HE WAS, HE IS, AND HE IS COMING AGAIN!!!! Don't MISS OUT!!!!! Invite HIM into your lives today!
I am so sorry for when I let red and green bows, presents, crowded stores and sales, things I think I can't live without, the shiny lights, or a man wearing read and white take any place in YOUR DAY! I am sorry that year round I tend to go with the flow and NOT SEEK YOU! I pray you will come into my life and take over all that I do. I give my entire household to YOU and YOU ONLY! Thank you for dying on the cross and forgiving my sins. Please ENTER into all parts of my life and help me listen to you. In YOUR HOLY NAME we pray- AMEN!
