Yesterday, my eyes started getting a bit blurry. Pftttt....I'm tougher than that...until I wasn't.
For the last few nights I haven't felt good. Last night I had an "official" fever. Pffttt....
So today we will call an official "holiday". We will curl up, watch a bit of TV, have a "Lego challenge", and get out the board games.
I will rest on the couch, while watching the festivities.
I get it. Rest. I'm listening.
Please pray the remainder of the funds come in. We are looking at what is directly in front of us. We know God will touch or convict who is HIS Will. We also know He listens to our petitions. We have a little over $1000 to raise to get our paperwork all the way to China. Though it looks like we won't get to our state capital this week, we are determined to next week. Then we send the paperwork to the Embassy and then to our agency (who translates it) and sends it to the country.
*Please pray we stand, reflect, and glorify God through our lives and this adoption process (first and foremost).
*Please pray for protection for our family and future children...that the master of lies may be bound and anything coming against us may be turned away.
*Please pray our 2007 van sells. Pray that the right person sees the van (post about it). We need the funds for our family expenses and this adoption.
*Our oldest daughter gets married in a month. Please pray she is able to get a full time job/insurance. Her Celiac disease makes this even more necessary.
*Please pray the adoption is fully funded.
*Please pray that we find our new normal (usually an after adoption prayer...lol). We need to figure out what direction to go in several ways. We need God's direction here.
*Please pray for Sarah's actual wedding (for Sarah and Ivan). They are paying for much/most themselves and between that and a million details (though it's a small wedding) and things they are working though...prayers are appreciated.
*Please pray my mom gains strength and finds a new normal as well. Also, please pray her kidney levels do go where they need to.
Many people are going through hard times right now. Please email me if I can pray for you. everlasting_momentum (at)verizon.net
