approved, Liked; commended; shown or approved to be worthy of approbation and support of. (American Dictionary of the English Language)

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

WE HAVE BEEN APPROVED!!!! After 6 LONG weeks of waiting for our CIS approval-- it came today. We were driving home from San Antonio today and Jessica (staying here with the three canines) called yelling that "it came, it came!" We all started screaming in the car and I started crying!! I guess it just felt good to have it come and be one step closer:)

Now the official wait begins!! We are so thankful to God for His perfect timing and His goodness.
