Let the Crazy Begin

We're taking the next step in our adventure of crazy. Today, our mailman will get the privilege of joining in the journey to our next daughter. I feel elated. Scared. Joyful. But most of all, settled. This is right. This is the path that God has for Our Gang. Prayers for His Light to illuminate the path would be so appreciated.

LadyBug, Baby BlueEyes and I all laid hands on it and prayed over it before I let them run it to the mailbox. We prayed for God's hand to be on our little mei-mei, that He would hand-pick her for our family like He did for our Li'l Empress. That He would prepare us and her for our joining together as family. And that He would watch over her and this process and give us strength, patience, and wisdom along each step of the way. I must admit, watching them RUN to the mailbox together to drop it in and raise the flag was touching. They are so excited and I am confident that mei-mei will be regularly covered in their prayers.

Raise that flag!
It's a red letter day for sure!

Wow! I take such comfort from your post, Tracy. Thank you. I have forgotten how faith can be so liberating and provide freedom from worry. I worry, too much. I'm not proud of it. It tells me I need to trust more.

If crazy is the worst thing you'll be called in this life, that's not all so bad.

So proud of you for this journey you are FAITHFULLY and OBEDIENTLY beginning.

Much love~

PS~You need to meet my friend Heather Beals in Feasterville. I think you'd hit it off.

Oh my friend, what a happy day! I haven't checked in for a while, but apparently picked the perfect day to do so (not to mention I am stalling on doing homework). I will be praying for your precious one. Excitement abounds!

Oh, congratulations, Tracy! And I just know that God will bless those prayers beautifully.

Joy said...

Congratulations. I wish it were us (although it wouldn't be with LH.)

Did you see you won at Ni Hao Y'all?
