A Time for Everything

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven" Ecc 3:1
This is one of my favorite verses as it speaks of Gods sovereignty over our lives, it's all in His timing not ours. However I must say even having that knowledge and understanding doesn't seem to make it any easier when you are waiting for your daughter to come home and be united with your family.  Ugh! We got news back that some of our papers for our adoption need to be re-done.  Anyone who has been down this road knows that this isn't what you want to hear.  It means more delays which translates to it taking longer to get onto the actual "wait list".  Which brings me back to this verse as I try to remind myself (as does my dear hubby) that I am not the one controlling this and that these little set backs have purpose. It's kind of ironic since we've adopted before and most of this process is familiar to us that I still react the way that I do. :)

On another note I have some VERY exciting and fun news that I will be posting and sharing about soon!  Stay tuned...
