5 more days

5 more days until our next court date. Praying for God's timing to line up with ours. I just read this scripture on the yahoo group and thought it was so fitting:

"So let's not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don't give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith." Galatians 6:9-10 The Message

I have also been listening to the following song over and over today. This song is by Mercy Rising, a christian band that Mark is the drummer for. I am so proud of what they are doing and the ministry they have created with their music. The very first line of this song is "Sun rises, sun sets, how long will you forget. How long will you forget me God...." I can't tell you how many times I have thought (even if only for a brief moment) those exact words while on this adoption journey. You really have to put all your trust in God and lay it all down, no matter how hard it is. There are so many unknowns and things that you don't understand and probably never really will. That is why I am so glad I have a God that loves me and is always there so I don't have to try and understand. I just have to trust in His love! To listen to part of the song go to:

I would add the MPG3 file here but can't figure out how!

You do not know me - I "happened upon" your blog with God's guidance probably 8 months ago. I've been watching your posts and praying for your family often. I've woken in the middle of the night over the past week saying prayers that your waiting will soon come to an abrupt end. You are an inspiration - I'm anxiously awaiting wonderful news this week.
