I can tell you one thing for sure...it's hard to wait on God. He sees what we don't see and he knows what we don't know, but sometimes I just wish I could see and know what will happen in my life. I guess I can see how easy it would have been to be tempted into eating the forbidden fruit from the tree in the garden. It just seems like it would be easier on the heart if I knew what would come next.

I've been patiently waiting (truly doing my best) to hear from this birth mom that I wrote about the last time. She has not contacted us in about 2 weeks. Who knows what this young woman is walking through....I've been praying for her and her little one, but I have no idea. I have been giving this situation to God daily and letting go a little at a time. Only God knows what she will decide and where this little baby will grow up. While it would be a dream come true, it also seemed "too good to be true". There is always this hope though, because I know that God can do anything! My heart feels wrapped with bubble wrap these days. God knows if we will have more children and only God knows how that miracle will take place.

Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25:5

May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope is in you. Psalm 25:21

Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24

May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you. Psalm 33:22
