Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone; but, still miraculously, my own.
Never forget, for a single minute you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.

So blessed...not gonna let anything steal my joy

Morning all :)

I am so blessed in my life and in this journey and I refust to allow anything to steal my JOY because the JOY of the Lord is my strength. There are 2 hurricanes heading towards Louisiana that may be very serious. We are praying against them both as we want all to be safe. In addition to that because Bobby works for the State Police it is possible if the hurricanes are too bad that Bobby will loose some of his leave. My flesh began to cry immediatly at this thought. They did say at this point He can go to Taiwan to get Noah but as soon as home he MAY have to go back to work and loose the rest of the leave. Well, first of all this is all a MAYBE so we are praying against it all. Second I need to lay this down at Jesus feet! HE KNOWS! I feel guilty that I lost it at first. God has brought us so far, and done so much for us. He will take care of all this! I have been just really thinking alot lately about all God has done for us along the journey. The Benefit concert alone was amazing and I still see and hear it in my mind always. I so wish it was on video or audio tape so we could show Noah and I could hear all that Praising over and over again. It is so funny that God brought a particular friend that I had not seen in a couple years to sing for me at the concert and has since had her just HAPPEN by at our car wash! :) I got more hugs! :) God is just so wonderful and loves me so good! We have been so incredibly blessed in this journey that God has drawn us closer to our friends, brought some old friends across our paths again, and brought some wonderful new friends into our lives :) Below is just a TINY portion of those the Lord has blessed us with in this journey :)

It is funny because this began as a journey to find the child of our hearts! And not only did God bring us to Noah! But he gave us even more! God has moved on so many people in all of this. It is never JUST about us, though God does care about the small things that we personally want but He always finds a way to bless us in a way that is Kingdom as well :)

Thank you Jesus for the honor of being a part of this journey. And NO it has NOT been easy, or as short a journey as I thought nor is it over. Sept 8th we begin a whole new Journey with our life with Noah and I just have a feeling God is going to use his little life in big ways.

Noah honey, we are getting so close little man! I love you more than words can say. Catch my kisses in the wind just a little longer Panda Boy!

Kisses in the Wind

I hold you in my heart and touch you in my dreams.
You are here each day with me, at least that's how it seems.

I know you wonder where we are... what's taking us so long.
But remember child, I love you so and God will keep you strong.

Now go outside and feel the breeze and let it touch your skin...Because tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God hold you in His hand until I can be with you.
I promise you, my darling, I'm doing all that I can do.

Very soon, you'll have a family for real, not just pretend.But for tonight, just as always, I blow you kisses in the wind.

May God wrap you in His arms and hold you very tight.
And let the angels bring the kisses that I sent to you each night.

When Love Takes You In!
