“When people walk closely with other people,
it’s the grace of God- and if we carry the priority
of loving and serving our friends, we’ll impart life.”
Thank you for walking so closely with me this week.
I’ve re-visited the beginning of this post over and over again since yesterday- trying to figure out how to fit the enormous amount of thankfulness and encouragement I’m feeling because of you into one paragraph.
I’ve decided it’s just not possible.
So I’ll be over in an hour to hug you.
MAN, I wish I could!!! (Local peeps- you’ve been warned)
Seriously though- what an inspiring and encouraging bunch you are! I really can’t thank you enough for the time you take to walk with me here each week. XO
As for whether the t-shirt line will become a full-on new biz (on a separate website, set up for that kind of thing), I am definitely inspired to keep researching/praying about it. As with any new venture, the days and weeks that led up to this (trial) launch were a bit mind-bending (in a good way, but mind-bending nevertheless), and I don’t think I exhaled for a full hour after I pushed the publish button on Monday’s post- LOL! (#nervewracking) I’m hoping to get some more friends on board though, and maybe together we can figure out how to proceed with this adventure!
And while we’re on updates…
2-26 came and went without any new adoption news, but I am SO thankful for the Peace that came along with really feeling like we wouldn’t hear anything before that date. It helped make the three months after our last “real” update (December 11th) feel a little more…expected, for lack of a better word.
Now here we are in March. Whoosh! The first quarter of the year is almost over just like that, and I’m sure it’s only a matter of time until we’ll hear about our consentment letter. There are several other Three Angels families waiting on theirs, too. Maybe they’ll all be signed the same day?
That’s my prayer this week.
That the person in charge of signing those consentments will have everything he or she needs to make everybody’s paperwork official so we can schedule our Embassy appointments and start planning our (group) socialization trip.
I’m so ready to be with my boy, y’all.
I long to scoop stones with him in the
sand rock box outside the orphanage.
I long to dream exactly where he dreams…
I long to cuddle him close, and rub that bowling ball belly I see squeezed into tiny, shared shirts.
I long to jump off the pages of his photo book and into his story forever.
