4 DAYS!!!

Four days until court...kinda. I had one of those odd epiphanies last night. I was thinking that our count date is similar to the old joke, "Do we go on three or wait until after three and then go?"

Day One is the big day for us...not day one and then go (smile)...I think.

I'm actually going to start this post with something really cool that happened this morning.

At the beginning of every six months I plan the memory verses for the semester. We're a tiny bit behind due to illness and bouts of insanity. As we started doing our Bible lesson today I went to look up this weeks memory verse. It actually brought tears to my eyes. Only God could have given us THIS verse, THIS week. Only God....

"Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4

God has blessed us with such confidence...and peace. Thank you again for holding us up in prayer.

Well, you've seen my goofiness on "6 DAYS!!!" (insanity) and "5 DAYS!!!" (laughing), so I've been racking my brain on more ways to get through this week. Keeping a hold on sanity didn't work (well, truthfully was there really any question?). Laughing has worked some, but we needed to add to it. Today we strove to just be busy (and thus a little distracted). Today we had our home school teaching co-op, so that was much easier.

Four Ways to Keep Busy...

1. Home School (in the car today)...

As you can tell, we are easily distracted. No, she's not texting (don't ream me)...poor deprived child has no web or text on her phone ;-).

2. Goof around and play....

Two of them still can't take my girl down...lol

Yes, we think different in our family.
Four square...our darling 9 year old takes on middle school and high schoolers.
What's a day without football (at least that's what our boys say)....

3. Enjoy Friends...

These are just a few of the girls that keep me rolling!

Best friends attached at the earphones...

4. Take a ton of pics because your bored...

Bekah trying to do Tom's hair.
Three of us girls...procrastinating.

Today, though busy, we felt your prayers. The day was happy and just felt overflowing with peace, joy, and friendship. Thank you for blessing us and praying with us as we journey toward our babies.

See you tomorrow bloggy friends, from the house where we are totally busy....and laughter and insanity never ceases. The house where, for the next four days, you will find us huddled up in prayer....



  1. You know I don't count "today"..or the day OF court...so really you have only TWO days till court:).

    Got ours today...wasn't great news..but it is what it is.

  2. YES! Psalm 37:4 was our theme verse through our first adoption and was the verse we put on the announcements we sent out when he came home! :)

    Praying for you. . .


In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
