Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa once said, "Do you want to do something beautiful for God.  There is a person who needs you.  This is your chance. "  This quote keeps popping up all around me, the first time two days ago, and then again today. Now, when I was reading more about a boy available for adoption, I learned he lives in Mother Teresa orphanage in Albania. I didn't even know there was an orphanage named after her.  I think I shall pray to Mother Teresa for guidance.

Don't Give Up!

Starting my day off with checking the ole email and scanning Facebook.....right when I open Facebook, staring me in the face is a photo of a friend, her husband, and their newly adopted daughter --absolutely beautiful picture!  It kinda made me sad though because I had decided last night that we probably won't adopt a child internationally, or maybe even not at all.  Yes, I feel defeated.  But, we don't meet the requirements to adopt from each country I turn to.  Then, as I scroll further down the page, I see

You will 

want to 

give up. 


And my friend who posted it, wrote above it, "If adoption is something you're called to do, Satan will throw every obstacle imaginable in your way. Don't give up. Your child is worth it!"  Is God sending us a message through her Facebook post ?  Maybe....Probably.  I can't agree with her more that our child is more than worth it.  And, it is very challenging.  Every time we turn a new direction we are met with a wall to climb over.  And, hey, what mother wouldn't be willing to climb ANY wall to get to her child.  So, today will be full of prayer and so will tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day and the next and so on.  He will continue to speak to me, so I'm going to turn down as many of life's distractions as possible so that I may hear Him when he speaks.

Looking for at least some direction

In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your path straight. Proverbs 3:6

I've spent the day today, wondering what He has planned for us.  I've been hoping for just a little direction from Him.  Then, I get online earlier and pulled up a website, left to take care of a few things, and when I finally sit down.....there it is......

In all your way

Acknowledge Him,

and He will make 

your paths STRAIGHT.

Proverbs 3:6

Right there in front of me.  There's the direction I was looking for.....
