This Week's Scripture

"Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it." Deuteronomy 7:26

This Week's Prayer!

We invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell in these rooms, which belongs to Henry, Anthony, Zoƫ, Asa, Rose, Grace, and Elijah, and in Heidi, Angel, and Angela's room. You are Lord over heaven and earth, and we proclaim that You are Lord over their rooms as well. Flood it with Your light and life. We pray that You, Lord, will make their rooms a holy place, sanctified for Your glory. And may You also dwell in our room and in each one of our extended family and friend's rooms.

We are going to the BEACH!!

I posted last week that we were very surprised at our home.....Well, our pastor has been doing a series on Vacations and at the beginning of the series he had told the church he will be sending one family on a vacation after the series. I never heard this because during this entire series I spent my time in the nursing room with my active 6 month old who refuses to enjoy nursery! So I did not get to hear alot of this series. Anyway, THE CHURCH STAFF GOT US GOOD! They had called us in the beginning of the week asking if they could come get the rest of our adoption story. This was not something that surprised us because they had interviewed us after our first two adoptions. Anyway, we prayed all week for God to tell us exactly what to say in hopes others would watch it and consider adoption! I had my notes.....I was ready!! So we are sitting at our table, cameras on, interview in progress and then there was a knock at our door..... it was one of our pastors, Mike Haman, dressed in beach attire! I don't remember anything he said except vacation and babysitters!! That's right!!!!! A vacation with babysitters!! WOW!!!!! So that was our surprise.....Our church chose our family to bless with a vacation! They are sending us to Destin, Florida!!!!! What an awesome blessing!!!!!

Thank you, God, for our "surprise" blessings!!!!!
Thank you, HPC!!!!!

The video was great. I teared up watching it. You did look a little "speechless" in the video but I loved Grace standing on the chair and Asa rubbing Elijah's head at the end.
Have a great time!

Thank you for letting me read such wonderful postings.
I look forward to assisting your lovely family. God has called me to service. I knew when I saw the video that I wanted to help you. It took my daughter Mollie to line it all up. I will be ready Sunday to carry your extra luggage in my Yukon as well as your second Nanny. God has special plans for all of us. Carol
