I am so grateful...

for the community of brothers and sisters in Christ that I have found through the medium of blogging. God is so amazing, and HE is more than able to use a human tool such as the Internet to mobilize His children to intercede on behalf of one another, to encourage each other, and to build each other up.

I want you to know that I am glad to have met you. Each of you. I am praying for so many of you. And I am thankful for the knowledge that many of you are praying for me.

The other week, D.T. and I were driving to church when we came to a crest in the hill. As we did, D.T. commented on our view of the mountains ahead...

The sky was clearer that day than we had ever seen before, revealing a second peak ~ a much larger peak ~ behind the one we were normally able to see. We had never noticed the second peak because the weather conditions had not been right for it to be visible.

This made me think about my life and the process of adoption we are going through. Like other things we have experienced and things that many of you may currently be experiencing, we can't always see the "bigger peaks" that lie ahead.

And that is probably a good thing. It just might not be the right time.

I think if I had known how hard the adoption process was going to be, I wouldn't have even bothered.

You see, I don't like pain. And I'm not very good at waiting. Or trusting. It's just not natural for me.

But I guess that's what the process of faith is about. Seeking God's face and then obeying the steps He shows us, even though we can't see the end of the journey. Walking towards the small peaks until God reveals the bigger ones ahead.

D.T. and I are continuing to walk by faith... and we are beginning to glimpse some bigger peaks ahead. As we do, I would selfishly ask that you continue to pray for us. I can't really share all the details, but we can all be assured that God knows every step of the journey.

I would also ask that you pray for several other brothers and sisters in Christ who are struggling in some way on their journey right now...

the Lamberths
and many others...

Perhaps you are struggling. Perhaps you need your brothers and sisters in Christ to hold you up too. Please allow me and others to bring you before our Father. Just leave a comment on this post. You can include as little or as much detail as you want. I commit that I will pray for you daily, and I hope that many others will as well.

I know this has been kind of random, but it has been on my heart for some time now.

Living in His JOY, HOPE, and PEACE...

Thanks for sharing your heart. I know for certain that God has taught me an awful lot about praying during our adoption journey. I've learned to pray BIG, after all is God not also BIG!!! There is power in prayer and so I want you to know that I am committed to praying for you.

this comment is not to this post, but I wanted to say hello and that you crack me up! I have been browsing your blog and am totally enjoying it! =)

I havent been able to find this information though: have you been chosen by a birth mom yet? How exciting to be adopting!!!! =)

C.C. and Double T said...


Thanks, and welcome to my blog! No, we have not been chosen yet by a birth mother. Actually, we have only been in our agency's "waiting pool" for a little more than a month. Who knows. It could happen soon, or it could be a long time.

Thanks for following!
