Up and Down and All Around.... Oh the Journey!

So, why the number 6??? Well.................

For SIX MONTHS we have be officially waiting for our new family member!!! We were placed on the waitlist October 18th, 2010.

And the wait, has already felt a little like this


We have had our very "high" moments when we are thrilled to be waiting and excited for the future. We have had our "low dips" when it feels as all we are doing is waiting for the lowering of a number. We have had many "upside down turns" when it feels as though we are being swept away by the journey and don't know what to expect. But through each new element and ever spot, we have felt the One, who led us on this path, gripping tightly to us.

We have been stretched and have been shown areas of our lives that God still needed to mold. We are learning what letting go truly means. We have been given an even greater passion to share the hope of the Lord.

Oh, what a journey!!

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
