I love this picture for many reasons. It is such a good depiction of our lives.....except I'm not sure where Issy is.... :) Notice the part of the curtains hanging down? Abe's full-face grin as he delights to watch the big boys throw Eyasu in the air? Random soccer trophy on the table and so on.......

I feel incredibly blessed that this is the scene that I get to witness on a daily basis. I am so full of all that He has revealed to us recently. The details for the October trip are really coming together, and for those that know my organizational skills, can attest to His goodness there! I am also so excited to tell you more about our meeting with the Glimmer of Hope staff last Friday and the way the Lord has worked out the project we are committing to partner with them- let's just say it is clearly a "God is in the details" story and has a beautiful redemptive element regarding the adoption of Eyasu.

LOVE this picture:) Your family is so joyful and I love to see that. I want to let you know that you crossed my mind today...and inspired me. I have been asking God to "search me"...always a daunting request b/c of what He may choose to point out:) Anyway, I was thinking about how I get so wrapped up in what is happening in our house and with our kids and how small that is in the grand scheme of things. And you came to mind:) You, who have just as much on your plate at home and are out reaching the world physically and through your blog. Love you, girl. Never doubt that you are being His hands and feet and heart in this world. And He is using you and your family in so many ways.

I just wanted let you know that our embassy date for Temesgen is August 25th. You should look at the updated pics of him on our blog. Such a big change from the ones that you sent us. It looks like only Scott will travel:( I am so jealous, but realize that this is most likely God's plan.

TJ Wilson said...

welcome home. love the photo too, your home is a safe and comfortable refuge to many. we love being in it!

Courtney Holder said...

Love the pic too!! And I love what's going on with Glimmer and your family. It was nice meeting you and Moody while you were in Austin. It's incredible to see God at work in all these stories of adoption. The adoption process for me continues to be a spiritual journey as much as it is something tangible. It builds my faith. And it's a blessing to read the same story again and again in the lives of so many. Thank you for continuing to share your life adventure, and how God is moving in the life of your family. Best, Courtney
