Flash Prayer...A "Day" and....

So many have so much going on.  This is NOT life or death.  Today has been a "everything that can go wrong will".  It has been CONSTANT.  Most has been little, but there are a few bigger things.  My blood pressure is probably through the roof now.

It's like that carnival game where you hit the pressure pad at the bottom with a big hammer and the reading goes higher the harder you hit it, until you ring the bell.   The hits kept coming harder.


We now have a date we need to leave and come back on, which is awesome!  So we have been working on flights.

Flights are expensive (including in country), though we have some good options.  We need to stay within our budget for everything together.  I admit being a tad concerned.   We are still moving toward the last $1594 that we need to raise and we are praying that is IT that is needed.  You guys have sacrificed and blessed us.  We really appreciate the prayer.

Add to that the fact that every "hiccup" that could happen (even with travel plans) today, did.

So I ask for prayer.
Please pray for "peace that passes understanding".
Please pray we are able to keep in the budget (for EVERYTHING) that we have.
Please pray the decisions we need to make...that we have discernment.
PLEASE PRAY THAT THE MASTER OF LIES HANDS ARE TIED!!!! (That he's silenced and deafened)

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

 If you don't know what's going on, we are two and a half weeks from bringing our two little girls (Grace and Hope) home from a very special large Asian nation.  We saw Grace's picture two years ago for the first time.  TWO YEARS and we are now at the last stage of the process.  In two and a half weeks we (a friend and I) go to bring them home!!!  We are now praying for the last $1594.00 we need to bring them home!!!



If you hear God nudging your heart or speaking to your spirit about helping bring our girls home....

*Feel free to share our need with anyone God leads you to. 

*You can email us at 1thomkat(at)verizon(dot)net and we will share our phone number (if you'd like to chat) or  address.  

*Our PayPal address can be used (using the "Family and Friends" method) to 1thomkat(at)verizon(dot)net.

 *If you would like a tax deductible way to give, you can email us at 1thomkat(at)verizon(dot)net.  We do have someone will to take donations.

*You can give through our YouCaring site.  A small fee is taken out, but it is linked directly to our adoption specific account at the bank.

*If you have an idea that may help, please feel free to email us as well. We never know how God may work!!!

Whatever avenue you feel comfortable with, thank you.  
Thank you for answering the call that will change the life of two little girls and our family forever.

  Thank you for the sacrifice...just thank you.

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, 
He hears us."
1 John 5:14

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

Several have asked about our needs for the girls.  Our biggest need, we were just told, is being provided (a new specific car seat).   We are overwhlemed, yet again, and so very grateful!!!! Most of the needs we have are smaller.  We've been hesitant to share since getting the girls home has to be our first priority We do have a baby registry on Amazon with items needed and though not posting the link on here, you can email us at 1thomkat (at) verizon (dot) net if you would like it . The second biggest item is a second baby carrier (the first may not come in time and both can be used with both girls) that we can use in country (not on the registry -----https://mykinderpack.com/collections/standard-size/products/black-koolnit-mesh-standard-kinderpack-baby-carrier?variant=30825777677 with plus size straps).  It's expensive and NOT anywhere the same priority as getting the girls home!!!! NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!!!

We thank you as well for thinking about our girls needs.  Again, our absolute first priority is bringing them home, please understand.  It's NOT that we don't want to share.

PRAYER REQUESTS: (They are now all immanent...smile)

1. THAT GOD IS GLORIFIED IN EVERY STEP OF THIS ADOPTION.

2.  I feel a deep need to have everyone join us in prayer for the attachment of our girls.  Please pray they have NO attachment issues and attach to us as a family very quickly.  We have been in the adoption world enough to know severe attachment issues exist.  We pray that GRACE and HOPE have NO issues with attachment...NONE (that God prepares them as well).

. 3. For Grace and Hope, that they are healthy, loved on, and protected. Please pray that they dream of us and attach quicker than ANYONE could imagine.

4. PLEASE pray protection against ALL of satan's schemes.  He's been messing with our family and with Amy and her family.  PLEASE pray a strong concrete, cement, gold, silver (smile) wall between our lives and his schemes.

5.  That we have "MORE THAN ENOUGH" for this trip.  PLEASE PRAY FOR $1,594 in less than THREE WEEKS and please pray for those individuals God is touching to help us financially bring home the girls.

6. Please pray for Thomas and I to see clearly where God is leading and what WE are to do.  

7.  Please pray that I can fully recover and can gain strength before travel comes (both Thomas and I on the last part...physical strength)

8. That my traveling companion (Amy) and I stay well (completely) within country and are safe....not even a nauseous stomach which commonly happens at least once.

 9. That God uses us/speaks through us while we are there, see what we need to see and doing what we need to do.

10. That our families are safe while we are gone and that it is a peaceful (and safe) time for them.

11. For Timothy's complete healing...and that he has walking and running in his future (smile).  That his pain is minimal.

12. Please pray for the Stewart family as they mourn the loss of their father, grandfather, and great grandfather, uncle, brother, and loved one.

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.
