Deuteronomy 31:6~

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Deuteronomy 31:6

Have you ever received a phone call that just left you spinning?

We received a call last Monday that has me feeling like Sweet Pea does when her 5 yo brother dances with her (She loves it when he twirls her around and around); excited , thrilled, and more than a little nervous.

We may have a very wonderful possibility set before us. When Jim told me of the call my reaction was literally "Oh my God!".. Not in a taking the Lord's name in vain way, but in a awestruck reaction that the Lord God is always working. He has heard and answered our prayers.

I have to confess that I have been more than a little afraid. I was afraid of dashed hopes and broken hearts...not just mine and Jim's... but our children's.. if things don't work out the way we want them to.

However, as I have prayed about this situation God has shown me time and again that just this opportunity is a blessing and to rejoice in it. He has truly blessed us. We know He goes before us, and we are so thankful that we are walking this road with each other.

I am sorry this is so vague, but if God brings us to mind please just pray that His will be done, and that He will be glorified!

I just have to say thank you for letting strangers have a peek into your lives. you have encouraged me so much to seek God more in motherhood, and wifeieness (now a word-lol). And given courage to say ok Lord, two more kids, or more, whatever You have. so, long rambling note, but just to say, thanks. :)

This is an exciting tantalizing post! And I wonder if what I suspect is what it could be? God is amazing. And he uses you thoroughly, doesn't He? What a grace, so many graces. So cool. Your ability to stretch, your heart, your family, yourself is inspiring. Can't wait to read more!
