Stepping Away

I'm stepping  away from the blog for a bit.  I need to focus on God and rest in Him.  There is so much "busy" that I need to take a brief sabbatical.  I know I disappear occasionally, but this time it's planned (chuckle).

I will check email, so if you are in need of prayer or need to get a hold of me, please email me at everlasting_momentum (at) verizon (dot) net.

 Yup, I wrote that out weird since spammers like me (smile).

~~~~~~
Adoption Update:
Our paperwork has now been sent to immigration (as of today).  We are now gathering dossier paperwork (paperwork that goes to the country).  We appreciate all prayer.

Mini Family Update:
*We are three months from our oldest daughters wedding.  The flower girl dresses came in today!!!
*Next week Jael goes in to get fitted for a new suspension system for her prosthetics that will help her be more independent!

I posted this a year ago today.  It made me think.

Here's a couple of outtakes from the day...




This was our July Fourth.  I don't know how many more we will have with everyone here.  Sarah will be married in four months when she is nineteen.  Tom's and his beautiful girlfriend are in a serious relationship.  Though we hope to have many more gatherings like this, for now I just enjoy the crazy togetherness.  These kids are wonderful.  We are blessed parents.

I will say that we do look forward to an addition next year.
I can picture Timothy already...a smile on his little face.

Please continue to pray for our family as our adoption progresses, that all glory is to God and for God's will and provision.  Next year we will prayerfully have another little guy in these pictures!

Fourth of July (in Pictures)...Oh How We've Grown ~ Part One

Through the years....


In 2011 our family was a little smaller.  The twins were one and 
our family had 
ONLY seven blessings.


By 2013 (below) our family had grown by just a few...



Then they just grew....
2014
...and grew....

2015

...and have been growing a bit more with some pretty special people.

2015
Ivan (next to Sarah) will be legally joined to our brood in October through marriage 
and Elizabeth (next to Tom) is his serious girlfriend who we have
sucked into our dementia (smile).


I'm not sure our couch will fit many more.  Guess we'll move outside next year (smile).

I've given up the serious pictures.  They just aren't going to happen.

2013

2014  (Too serious, seems wrong)

2015 (That's better...)

It's impossible....

2013

2014

2015

I don't try anymore.  I just don't (chuckle)...after all, look who their parents are.

Apparently we have a lot of kids and fitting all the pictures in one post is just not possible.

Join us for part two tomorrow.  For now I leave you with the above craziness to tide you over.
