A Glimmer, Cats in the Sun, and PRAY!!!! (Video Preciousness)

Good things are happening.  We've been on a private road we can't share yet that has had so many twists and turns that I feel dizzy.  It's a road that God paved and full of blessing, but a bit exhausting. We have seen a glimmer of the joy....a light at the end of the road though.  OH LORD THANK YOU!!!!

We have other joy to share too, in just a second.

Today we likely have around four weeks until we are to travel across the world for Timothy.  He may or may not know we are comong.  I felt like everything in our lives paused this last week.

You should hear how quiet our house still is.  Everyone is just laying around.  We look like cats basking in the sun.  The silence only broken by an occasional hard cough or an occasional, "Mommy, can I__________?"

We feel like a bunch of weak and weary individuals, just flat out tired.

I felt speckles of guilt niggling at me last week between concern for Thomas, fever, and caring for the kids.  Timothy didn't cease to exist just because Thomas was in the hospital and everyone was sick.  His fingerprints are on our hearts (as all of the kids are).

Yet the super capes were used to clean up vomit.  My Lysol wrist shooters were all out (thank goodness a friend brought refills).  My ability to brain left a lot to be desired and we temporarily turned into vampires.  (Oh, the light! The light! My eyes!)

We are gradually reemerging into the world though.

So I wanted to share with you this preciousness and ask you to PRAY PRAY PRAY.  We are so close....four weeks.  That seems unbelievable...and yet we have quite a ways to go still.  Thank you for continuing to stand with us.  The prayer requests and ways to give are all below.  THANK YOU!!!!


These are the prayers that we put before you.  The financial information is below.

1. We pray for God to be glorified and magnified.  That this adoption may move others hearts for HIM.  That HE may use this journey to draw people into Him and spur people to adopt.

2. Please pray for all the paperwork to be correct, without mistake, in this adoption. 

3.Please pray that the paperwork we are waiting for (IF it is God's Will) is given with joy...soon.

4. We are praying very specifically for $13,000 to complete Timothy's adoption.  We ask for prayers that it comes quickly and is so obviously GOD (which we think in ANY case it would be   The funds we need feels like we need the cattle on a thousand hills.  Please pray this "cattle" comes in.

5. Please pray that Timothy is protected and prepared to attach easier than could ever be expected.  That God implants us on his heart and that he is given dreams of us.   That his fear is minimal when he meets us, but that it be because he KNOWS us.

6. Please pray our time in country is peaceful, without illness (which often happens), safe, but most importantly...may it be a time of ministering to others.  May we have the opportunity to reach people for Jesus.  Please also pray our family here has a time of peace and safety while we are apart...and that we come back together quickly.

7. Please pray protection for our family, that the master of lies is blinded, deafened, and silenced.  Please pray for the health of every member of our family (especially Thomas, that he is completely healed). Please pray (IF God Wills) that we have a year of peace and deliverance.  That we may be able to use this year to minister to our children and others.

8. Please pray that the fixes we need to make to our home (misc.) can be done quickly, financially taken care of somehow.  That someone's heart may be touched and the fixes done. 

9. Please pray for energy for Thomas and I.  The stress of the last year has taken it's toll.  We've stopped focusing on health and we need to be.  We need to get weight off that was gained over this period (for our health and endurance).   The recovered energy, from the battle of this last year, would be such a blessing.

10. Please pray we hear God clearly and obey Him promptly.

  1. We are praying! The vidio is just precious! Oh, he needs you badly! Praise the Lord that his rescue is in sight - and that it's so near now!!! God Bless Your Family!!!


In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

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