both happy and sad.

I have been struggling this weekend. 

While we usually feel strong in our decision to adopt again, there are times that concerns and fears creep in. 

"Will we be stretched too thin?  Will we be able to financially provide for the future of these precious children, who deserve all we can give them, and then some?"

Realistic concerns, I'd say.  But I feel awful for letting those fears get the best of me sometimes, in light of all God is showing us through this journey.

When it all comes down to it, we must trust.

Trust that our God is bigger than our fears and concerns. 

Trust that He provides for our needs. 

Trust that these little ones, whom He joins to us, are loved so deeply by Him that we can leave our fears at His feet. 

Then, the part I love.... 

Leaning on Him and the reassurance He gives when we need it most. 
The validation He provides that we are on the right path, even when the numbers don't add up.

The encouragement at just the right moment. 

The faith He infuses into our very being. 

Both of us.  A team.  Loving and leaning hard on Him.  Together.  (And what a faith-building journey this is!)

What if we believe we have everything we need to follow Him?

Overflowing with peace.  Deeply grateful.  A desire to run the race well.  And yes, feeling so excited again to meet the little one He is preparing for our family.

We are humbled, and honored, to have the privilege of walking this journey again. 

THANK YOU for supporting us through this. :)
