God is good all the time!!

It has been a difficult week for my family
but we are so thankful for God's love
that has carried us through.
I am so thankful and blessed to have
3 wonderful children and one one the way.
I am so thankful for my husband
and the love we share.
I am thankful for the trials that
God puts me through.
It has given me strength.
It has given me wisdom.
It has brought me closer than ever
to my Lord and Savior.
I am thankful I serve a mighty God that protects me from those who try to do harm.
I am thankful the truth was made known today.
I am thankful my children were able to see the Lord at work.
I pray for those who have done us wrong.
I forgive you for all the unnecessary trauma you caused my family.
I plan to continue to educate others on the issues families face with internationally adopted older children through this blog. I hope this will help others to not only understand our daughter but to be sensitive to the challenges these children face and understanding of the trauma they have been through.
In closing I leave you with this:
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
All Glory be to God:)

Precious Promises

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Gal 2:20

Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee Jer 32:17

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive Mt. 21:22

We must learn to believe God's exceeding great and precious promises. It will change the way we pray and it will change the way we live!
