Since Monday I have talked to SIX people through the process of adoption!! MY HEART IS SO FULL! Six more children are going to be able to call out "mommy!" "daddy!" I know that my sweet Saviour is ALL SMILES. I once heard "the secret of success is to find out what God is doing, and then get in on it with him".....God is definitely in the ORPHAN business!

I love to hear engagement stories. There is something so sweet about a man taking the time to look for a diamond and then planning how he is going to humble himself down on one knee and ASK her to marry him. That solitaire is a symbol of his bride... brilliant, priceless, and beautiful. Solitaires are jewelers most prized possession. They VERY CAREFULLY put each one into a setting. In Psalm 68:6...God settles the solitary in a home, he leads out the prisoners to prosperity, but the rebellious dwell in a parched land. MIGHT YOUR FAMILY BE THE SETTING FOR GOD TO SET A SOLITAIRE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE? Our Lord is a jeweler. He VERY CAREFULLY places solitaires into settings. I CANNOT wait to see the brilliance of the six families that I spoke with this week. Their lives are going to shine before HIM after he sets each solitaire in it's setting. Orphans are MORE than endowed, brilliant, priceless, and beautiful....they have our fathers name on them!!

Take a look at these priceless jewels that HE set in my family.

beautiful and such a rush to be used by God, isn't it? i'm wondering what God's up to, directing my path into Amazima's first, then an old friend from high school who adopted 2 from Russia second, then reconnecting with friends who adopted 2 3 years ago, then with you and i surrounded? :-)

i'm a little scared that you and Gwen are tag team praying for us. pray harder for the men than for me...hi caleb! hi joshua!
