It's a mixed bag....

Today was such a surprise!  We had rain forecasted for this entire week however today we are literally having a snow storm. It is beautiful. The kind of snow that is like big goose down feathers floating down out of the sky. In light of the events of this past week, I welcome the snow over a gloomy rainy day.  As I look out our office window at home I see that it is really starting to come down, I love it! Spring in Idaho.

In spite of all of the uncertainties regarding adoptions from Ethiopia referrals continue to be given.  We have moved up two more places on the waiting list which now makes us NUMBER 46 on the infant girl listLittle by little we getting closer to you baby girl.

I opened my bible last night after dinner and found myself in the Psalms.  Once I began reading I just lost myself and the words began to nourish my soul.  It is so comforting when the words you are reading can speak to your heart in such a way that it truly is like a healing balm.

Psalm 63
O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and your
Because your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
and in your name I will lift up my
My soul will be satisfied as with the
richest of foods;
with singing lips my mouth will
praise you.
On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches
of the night.
Because you are my help,
I sing in the the shadow of your
My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.
They who seek my life will be
they will go down to the depths of
the earth.
They will be given over to the sword
and become food for jackals.
But the king will rejoice in God;
all who swear by God's name will
praise him,
while the mouths of liars will be silenced.

Blessings to you all....
