getting closer

Both boys are in a week-long baseball tournament, so we are definitely busy.  That has helped me not obsess over the court date that is coming up on Thursday.  The Lord has faithfully given me scripture to ease my mind and remind me that He is King of Kings and the Ultimate Judge over all.  

This morning I read "Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you.  For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for him."  Isaiah 30:18

As we wait for an Ethiopian judge to legally make our little guy an Alexander, I am thankful for a God of justice that is merciful to His own.
