Our Village

Today a package came in the mail.  It was from a friend I have never met, but has become so dear to my heart.  Rebekah comforted my heart through Jonathan.... and she (and her Church) have been such prayer warriors for us.

The package contained a crocheted a little dog for Timothy, but also stickers and notes for the rest of the kids.  It meant a lot to all of them...and to Thomas and I.


So many give so much.  Thank you to our village...
Thank you again for the prayers offered.  Thank you again for  the meals you brought when we were gone.  Thank you for the continued gifts (including a sweet friend just ordered Timothy a brand new dresser).  You guys are so great!

As always, we continue to be appreciative of all prayers.  There is not a day that passes we don't all need them (smile).  I think that's part of living in a world that is not our home.

Prayer Requests
1.    Continued prayers for Tom and Elizabeth....blessing and protection.
2.  Prayers for our grandchild (in utero) and mommy as the pregnancy progresses.  Sarah has to be so careful with the severity of her allergy to wheat (seizures) and she also has to gain a lot of weight (she lost and couldn't gain before her Celiac diagnoses and was only beginning to gain before her pregnancy).  She's doing great, but could use the prayers.
3. For our little man as he transitions.  Specifically that he sees us as different (attachment) and has some stranger fear (showing he sees us as his security) and his sleep. It's easy to look at little ones newly coming home as "friendly".  That may be a bit of it, but often they have no concept of family and view everyone as caregivers initially.
4. For direction as we move forward with so many changes and future changes.
5.  That we can get into a good co-op with home school (in the works) for next year.
6.  For Lexi and I as we struggle with jet-lag (nausea as well) and also that God grows us from this last trip how HE wills.

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.
