Waiting, Watching, and Praying







Hello again.

Waiting.... It seems very hard to post when there is no hope of a referral in sight. This past month China only psoted 3 days of referrals. It's like being in the worst traffic jam imaginable, only on paper.

Please over look the obvious frustration in my tone. I know it is all in God's time, but as I stated in our original post, patience is not a virtue of mine. I'm trying very hard. We are certain she will be worth the wait, it just seems so far out of reach.

Watching.... I have read so many new referral posts that my bottom is stuck to the chiar! I cry and sniffle, then cry some more.

Praying.... Now a resovle takes over from deep within. I'm reminded once again that this day as well as the ones to come belong to the Lord. I pray for forgivness for not trusting in His all knowing grace. I give it all back to Him and sheepishly lay it at His feet. He knows me so well, He readily lifts the burden and dries my tears. I'm so undeserving of such mercy.

Looking ahead... Our family traveled over the Labor Day weekend to dedicate Mark's best friends son. Jason and Andrew were smitten with him. Andrew actually asked if it was too late for us to get a boy instead of a girl!!! (Issac is Korean, and his sister is Chinese)

Yes Andrew, it's a little late for that! :-)
