“This is how God works: he puts his people in positions where they are desperate for his power, and then he shows his provision in ways that display his greatness.” -David Platt

This pretty much sums up our desire to adopt.  I love being in a place where God's greatness can simply shine.  You take this leap of faith, not knowing what to expect.  Sometimes after the jump, you wonder, "what in the world have I done?"  It is in those moments of uncertainty and utter desperation that God really shows up.  I'm preparing myself for those types of moments...moments that I become smaller so that He becomes so much greater!

note: reason #271 that I love my boys but would also love to have a girl...I typed this while playing light sabers with Jackson.

added to the kitty

I went to a craft show today with the hope of selling many flowers...not so much.  There was not much traffic and those that did come didn't buy much of anything.  I sold 3 flowers and made a whopping $18.  I'm choosing to think positive...that's $18 towards adoption that we didn't have yesterday!

am I ready?

Our plans for adoption have been intercepted quite a few times before.  This time it feels for real...and we've never been more unprepared.  My heart starts to race as I think about the road ahead of us.  The God who called us is faithful.  He's been faithful each day of my 33 years.  He'll be faithful to the end.  I am like a child at Christmas with the anticipation of seeing (again) first hand just how big our God is.  Seeing Him do His thing gives me a rush!  I'm sure this will be no different...
