Well, this Blog may come together like a puzzle - one of those puzzles that sits out on a table and comes together a little here & a little there. It's almost time to go pick the kids up from school, so not much time to write today. :)
This morning, i just couldn't get this song out of my head: "On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand....all other ground is sinking sand." I began to think about all the times I felt I was falling into that pit of sinking sand. So many times I tried to get out on my own, and all the while God was calling out - "Stand upon Me". Journeying through this life, on our own strength, gets exhausting, and on our own strength, we so easily slip into those sinking sands.
I hope that just sharing my journey will help women, young and old, find encouragement and even some laughs at times.
Spence and I are in full time youth ministry and praying through the possibility of International Adoption. This is something that has been on my heart for many years (even before the birth of our three). It's one of those things I just cant seem to shake. It's on my mind all of the time. I sit at our dinner table and picture a fourth child in our empty chair. I look in my rear view mirror and can see her smiling face. I randomly run into people at the grocery store, and before I know it, our conversation has led to the topic of adoption.
So, in this time, I'm standing on the Rock. I understand fully that this may be a VERY long journey, before we ever get to meet that precious smiling face. Until then, I hope to meet many sweet women and hear of your journeys as well!
