I have been so very busy with work and family. I have been reading my friend's blogs and enjoying the blessings of fellow adoptive families as they journey to bring their children home. In the meantime, God has answered our prayers and we have official travel dates. God is good all of the time! I will sing of His mercies and worship Him with all of my heart.
I have posted a play list with some of my favorite songs. I will add more over time. Today is the day that they Lord has given us and we should rejoice and be glad! I have been very tired lately and sickness has run its course through my home. It was during the night when my son was very sick with a stomach virus.....and we had to visit the ER for fluids that I began to think about this post. He is all we need.....He is always there......He is never too busy.....He is listening and waiting just for us and He will never let you down. The night that we visited the ER....was a quiet night and the waiting room was empty (AMAZING!!). It was sitting in that hospital room in the quiet while my son was receiving his IV fluids....that I began to think about these two boys. My boys...who have not had a mother or father to grab them up in the middle of night and take them to be treated. Tears rolled down my face as I thought about the years that have passed and no one was there to sit through a fever, wipe away a tear, pray through a hard time and cheer them on through success. I rubbed my sweet little blond headed son and I thanked God for the blessing of being a mother even during the hard times of sickness. I love that God is never far away...always open and ready to hear the cries of his children. So my friend, tonight I sing of His mercies!
