ok...so, I never packed when I said I was going to.
I am the ultimate procrastinator. UGH
The kids and I had a blast this afternoon with a ton of other adoptive familes from our area.
We celebrated Chinese New Year and had so much fun! Many of these families I see weekly at my play group. Some I see once a year. It was just so cool to see all these families who cherish their chance to parent these children. God sure has worked His hand in this area. I think there were at least 40 kids from China there! This is amazing when you think of our rual little county! I am blessed to have these families for insight and friendship. Thank you.
So-- I am checked in and I am ready---
Yes-- ready mentally--not physically.
I am being picked up by a friend (who I am gonna owe big time) at 4:00 am.
We'll make it a party by stopping at some gas station for some java...and my favorite--corn nuts.
Have you ever had them?? Tastes like popcorn but very crunchy! MMMmmmm.
So-- next time I post--I will be in New Jersey--laying over for my flight to Beijing. I have 5 hours to do..
Keep those prayers coming for the paperwork. There must be some real miracles happening while I am sitting on a plane the next 24 hours....
Blessings to you all as you join me on the God-Adventure. I am thrilled to have you along.
I was reminded today that
God is with me all the time...so close he does not even need a seat on the plane!!
Oh! Church this morning was wonderful. We had a guest couple playing for us and they are really fantastic.
We sang "Mighty to Save"...It rings so true to me.
Some of the words include:
"Savior, He can move the mountains"
...and I fully intend on telling everyone HE DID IT....when I sign the papers for Samantha and Piper in the coming two weeks. Victory will be ours through HIM.
