Five and Prayers for Those in Boston



Five full days left until we are on our way to Eastern Europe.  Day zero, the day we fly out, is coming quickly.

It's unbelievable to me that we are this close.  The butterflies are starting to "roost" in my stomach.

It seems like every day now has a list.  One of our teens has class today.  I have a store I need to stop by.  Mainly today we need to clean the house.  A friend from Thomas' work gave us a really cool present.  I can't share it on the blog, sorry.  I'm leaving you hanging.  I'm mean like that. 

I had planned to be light hearted, but considering what happened in Boston, it's difficult to do.  The hatred...evil humans perpetrate on each other...is nightmarish. 

I just want to hold all of our children close and not let go.  I wish Benjamin was here in our arms. 

Praying for comfort (and healing) for those who started this day looking forward to it...and now suffer, their lives forever changed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"About Benjamin He said:
'Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in Him,
 for He shields him all day long,
and the one the Lord loves rests between His shoulders.'
Deuteronomy 33:12

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
PLEASE PRAY FOR THOSE INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES IN BOSTON SUFFERING RIGHT NOW.  PLEASE PRAY FOR COMFORT AND HEALING.
 
PRAYER REQUESTS:

*Please pray that God sustains Benjamin.  Please pray that He prepares his heart and Ben dreams of us...knowing us...in ways that wouldn't make sense to the world.  Please pray he attaches and learns to love (and learns what family is) quicker than we can fathom.

*PLEASE pray that satan's hands are tied.  He does not want us (or anyone) to enter that village. 
*Please pray that the village gates are “figuratively” thrown down and God’s love floods the streets.
*Please pray our children at home are safe...physically/emotionally/and spiritually.  Attacks on the kids happened last time we were gone on the trip to bring Jael home.  PLEASE cover them. 

*Please pray for my husband and I, for our SAFETY and that we remain WELL.  We are going somewhere VERY rural with no one that speaks English most of the time. 

*Please pray for my mom, brother, and friend as they care for our children (safety, smoothness, etc.)

*NEW~ Please pray that we are able to complete the adoption in only two trips.  Please pray that both trips have a speed that can only be explained as a blessing of God.

*That ALL paperwork needed is sped (by God's Will) in country (with NO hiccups).

*Please pray that we are able to get court QUICKER THAN EVER IMAGINED on trip one.  Please pray that court goes EXTREMELY easy and quick.  It doesn't always.

*Please pray for comfort as we continue to mourn Jonathan.
 
*Please pray for us to have a connection with the head of the institution.  Our feelings are raw, but we know that they have limited resources and we pray we can make a difference in the lives of these boys.  God has given us a love for the head of the institution and the caregivers.  Also, please pray for our connection to those in the village.

*Please pray the trip  itself is smooth.  There are NO issues.  That every blip, every hiccup...is ironed out before us.
 
*PLEASE PRAY GOD'S WILL IS DONE*

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.
