Morning My Friends

For some crazy reason I've been up since four (actually spelled that "FOR" the first time around...yep, not quite awake yet).

Yet, THIS TIME, I was not woken up by....
*My daughter WAKING ME UP to tell me she's awake and going in the living room.
*My teen son waking me up on a NON school (co-op) day to groggily ask, "Aren't you supposed to take me to school today?"
*My sweet 17 month old twins having a blanket fight between their cribs (very literally throwing their blankets at each other and cracking up).

All those happened this week, but this morning my body decided IT had other plans. Anyone have a replacement body I can borrow?

Since this is the most pointless post EVER...lol...I will just say....

"Good morning bloggy friends! May your day be blessed (and rested)."

"For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God" Colossians 1:9-10

Don't hesitate to tell me if there are any prayer requests or praises you would like to share!

Answered Prayer/Praises

*Eliz just got their official referral of the first two (of five) of their sweet boys. Her husband will be taking their first trip withing WEEKS!!!
*God has spoken to us...that's just it...so cool.

Prayer Requests (Personal Family Requests Below)

*Rolando and Julia (Guatemala-It has been over five years.), AND Junior and Diamoh (Liberia) to be able to finally come home to their families and that these countries open to legitimate adoptions.
*Renae-For the continued transition of their sweet family. Their daughter joined their family this year! They are also embarking on another blessed journey to their next child (Ethiopia). Please pray God's hand on them and His protection (as satan is already attacking).
*Daniel (Liberia) and Jeremiah (Taiwan)- for their continued health issues. God's blessings and Hand on them and their families.
*Our friend's (unnamed, God knows) foster son, his family, and all who will make or influence decisions on his behalf that God's will be done in every aspect of his life. Also, please pray for his health as he has had some VERY serious health problems lately.
*Eliz and her family-Blessings of speed of process and safety for her five fragile sons with Down Syndrome as they wait to bring them home.
*Please pray for our friends (the Stokes family) and their adoption from China as they reach the last stages to bring home their newest blessing.
*Please continue to pray for Abby, Tatum, and Elke (little blessings with leukemia). Though remission may be there, please pray for their continued health.
*Please pray for my spiritual sister Michelle's dad who is in a battle with cancer.
*Please pray for a special friend Amber's mom who is also battling cancer.
*Please pray for baby Judah (a newborn little blessing from Ethiopia) who has hydrocephalus and is currently in the U.S. for treatment.
*A sweet friend (God knows) who are on the verge of starting another adoption. Please pray for discernment and blessing for this wonderful family.

Our Family Prayer Requests:

*We pray for God's Hand on us as we follow His path to our future child. We pray that financially things will fall into place to be able to adopt so that we will not have to wait on any funds (at least initially). We pray for health as we plan for the future. We pray for our future children, our current blessings, and our family...that they may be loved and prepared for another amazing blessing. Especially we pray that whatever happens, it is to God's glory and is HIS will.

*We also ask that you join us in prayer for wisdom and guidance (that we can bring God the most glory) in my husband's career. We're limited in what we can share, but feel pressed on to pray about both these prayer requests and God knows exactly what we're asking.

*Last, we ask that you pray protection against satan's barbs/attacks which we've been seeing quite a few of recently. Thank 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.
