God is so good!

Phillippians 2:13 "For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose."

God has been so good to us. We were able to speak with our representative this week, and ask more questions. We are registered for Bethany's intercountry adoption information meeting on March 4 and are really looking forward to it! We do not feel a particular country "calling" us yet (is that normal?!), but we are praying for God's will to be done and a country to be put on our hearts. I called Robert's sister, Dawn, this week, and the whole conversation was an overwhelming blessing! She has adopted four (all with special needs) children. She was answering questions and concerns before I could even ask them, it was awesome! Through her, one of my prayer requests was answered. To help with the cost of adoption, she is willing to work with us as she owns an embroidery business! Praise God!! Still so many things to think about and set-up, but with Him all things are possible!

I know I started this blog page to journal our adoption events, but I feel the need to diverge for just a moment. Even if not for the reader of this blog, but for myself or my kids that may someday look back through this. There's a song my principal, Mr. Reynolds, has taught the classes in chapel, it goes...
The Devil is a sly old fox,
if I could catch him
I would throw him in a box
I'd lock the door and throw away the key
for all the tricks he's played on me.

I'm glad I've got salvation.
I'm glad I've got salvation.
I'm glad I've got salvation.
I'm trusting in the Lord.
The first time I heard that song, I was a little concerned about my class having nightmares after hearing the first verse. Where am I going with this you may wonder? Well, I want you to know that the devil will appear when you least expect it. There are going to be times you'll be joyous, going through your day, doing what you feel is God's will, and all of a sudden something is thrown in your way. We get knocked down, then what?

2 Corinthians 4:6-9 "For God, who said, 'Let light shine out of darkness,' made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed."

His joy is my strength!
