Busy week!

We have been delivering auction items to those who purchased stuff.  Thank you to all who helped support this fundraising auction.  It was very successful in our eyes.  We give all the glory to our Lord who guided us in putting everything into place for the big sale.  A very special thank you to all those who donated items for our auction. 

Currently filling out our 800 paperwork.  Boy, don't have a clue what to write in some of the blanks.  Ha Ha!  Many pages of repeating information.  But just filling out another form like we are supposed to do.  One more step closer to our daughter.  So anxious to get her home. 

Please continue to pray while we are in these final stages of our journey.  Pray for PATIENCE and above all God's provision for all in country expenses and all our travel expenses.

Finishing up Jacii's bedroom.  Still needing bedding.  Having a hard time choosing sheets and blankets.  Also, needing window treatments.  Her closet is empty.  No clothing since we don't know what size she will be wearing when we get home.  It has taken much will power to not buy all the cute dresses and shoes I've been seeing on clearance:)  I haven't purchased little girl dresses in almost 20 YEARS!!!  (Meghan will be 21 in June).  Papa Glen painted a keepsake shelf that will be placed over the big south window in the bedroom.  And Papa Glen is going to take on the task of painting our big cedar rocker.  Thank you, daddy.

God is good.  All is falling into place as it should.  Praying for the fruits of the spirit to flow from our family.  The kids are learning that we work together as a family at all times.  And that no job "is not mine", but ours as a family.  We have alot to learn and come to understand.  We are a work in progress.  The Lord is molding, making, using, and filling us each day with His love and is teaching us to love.  Matt 22:37-39 says, "And He replied to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the great and first commandment.  And a second is like it:  You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
