Just a reminder for myself

A child sat on Jesus' lap in the splendor of heaven. The child asked, "Is it time?" Jesus parted the clouds, looked and said, "No, not yet child."The child asked "When will it be time?"Jesus replied, "When lessons are learned, hardships endured, and loneliness lived, then it will be time."Time passed. The child asked, "Is it time?"Jesus parted the clouds, looked and said,"No, not yet child."The child asked, "When will it be time?"Jesus replied, "When maturity is reached,self-worth affirmed and spirits strengthened, then it will be time."Time passed. The child asked, "Is it time?"Jesus parted the clouds, looked and said,"Their love is strong and their hearts are open. Yes, now it is time-Your parents are ready."~author unknown

great illustration for those of us who wait...even though WE think we're ready, HE knows so much better. I keep thinking...Our God is capable of more than we can imagine. If he thought it was time for that babe to be in our home, she'd already be here.

Praying for you as you wait!

What a precious thought and true reminder...
We are praying for referrals! With the wait still fresh in our minds, we remember the ache. Seems like they come when one least expects it.. For me, I had just finally said.. "okay, your time God, not mine... if I have to wait another year, so be it"...
We will be rejoicing with you when you receive the call!

WOW..This was truly amazing! I was kind of having a "cranky" day. We have just hit 2 years being in the adoption process. This has made me think about more than just how much I want. His time is perfect!
