I know, I know where have we been. Just caught up in life, moving very quickly and dealing with lots of stuff. I will hopefully be able to catch everyone up soon, but for now we have to keep everything in the family. I will tell you that God has been throwing us some serious curve balls as of late. We are starting to see the end of the tunnel, but I am trusting and having faith in the fact that it is all out of my hands. Yep, I said it out of my hands....and you know what it feels pretty good to say. I don't have to shoulder the responsibility, I just have to look to Him and follow His lead. I have a few cute pics I want to post soon so hopefully by the end of the week, I will share those but for know I will leave you with this, one of my all time favorite praise songs. Actually written by Billy and Cindy Foote who have a little sweetie from China and are adopting another from Ethiopia. You are hearing it sung by Phillips, Craig and Dean on the playlist though.

You Are God Alone
by Billy and Cindy Foote

You are not a god
Created by human hands
You are not a god
Dependant on any mortal man
You are not a god
In need of anything we can give
By Your plan, that’s just the way it is

You are God alone
From before time began
You were on Your throne
Your are God alone
And right now
In the good times and bad
You are on Your throne
You are God alone

You’re the only God
Whose power none can contend
You’re the only God
Whose name and praise will never end
You’re the only God
Who’s worthy of everything we can give
You are God
And that’s just the way it is

You're Unchangeable
You're Unshakable
You're Unstoppable
That’s what You are

Oh sweet Carla, I am sorry you have been going through something. My first thought was of Ethan and Sha-Sha. I hope and pray they are well. Let us know when you can and in the meantime, we'll just pray 'cause God knows what you need and how to help!!! Love and hugs, L

I've been missing you! Know that I am praying for you and I've been thinking of you a lot. Bring on some pictures of those sweet children. :)

Praying for you Carla. I wanted to share a verse I cam across this morning. It is a good reminder for me:

"Be strong and let us fight bravely for our people and the cities of our God. The Lord will do what is good in his sight!"
1 Chronicles 19:13
