A good day
They were truly appreciative and knew that it was special instead of just expecting that they're going to be taken out. Now don't get me wrong our kids are not perfect angels all the time, but it was refreshing to see their gratitude for something that is so common now days. The meal was enjoyable, the kids were happy and well behaved even Sadie sat completely content to color. I was completely thankful for this day, it may sound silly to the one reading this, but I was very aware at that time how very much I have been blessed. My husband is a huge blessing from the Lord, I depend on him so much for so many things. I am grateful for him and his love for me and our children. He works hard to provide for us and I love that he is sensitive to our family to know when just such a treat is needed.
I have been given six wonderful blessings, hopefully soon to be seven, and in a world where children are viewed as burdens and financial responsibilities other than what God has intended for them to be, JOY, REWARDS, BLESSINGS, it makes my heart sick.
I can't wait to bring Sergey home to be apart of our family. I'm completely in love with him and my heart aches that he is so far away and I have no idea what is going on in his life. Is there someone holding him, giving him hugs and kisses (I doubt it), making sure he's had enough to eat and drink?
My prayer for him has been that someone would come into that orphanage and love on him, that he would know what love is. Yes this will make it harder for us when we come to get him, he would be bonded to someone already and it would be hard on us and him to separate from that person.
How can I question and put my human limits on an almighty powerful God? His power is made perfect in our weakness and He will equip us with everything we need. Because all things are possible with Him and this is about His glory being revealed in our hearts, in our lives, in this family, in this child, and in our church and community. So if I question my God about what I can't see then where is my faith, that doesn't sit well with me. So we GO!
