A weekend update....

We had a very busy weekend. God is so good..On Friday night we had three couples over for alittle hospitality..It sure feels good to have good food and good friends.. These friends are some of the best...The kinda of friends that help you along this path we call life...
On Saturday we helped my mom move out of her house and she had given Taylor her bed-room suit. It was a great day for Tay. She got all new furniture and curtains and pillows and just everything..She was one happy girl. It took us all day to get all of her new stuff in her room but she is sleeping like the princess she is now on a very comfortable mattress....:) Thanks mom..
Her brothers helped put her bed up and everyone was happy for her..We went for pizza after that and then a movie at home and piled up like puppies....
On Sunday morning we got a call from some of our friends saying to pray because their prodigal came home...We were so excited to welcome him with open arms and love...at church. That was a high-light...Thanks for coming home Josh.:)
On Sunday night we went to our bible-study where we met with some great families.


They just posted on AOH about a boy who is 12 years old and he has heart problems. The father is pleading for someone to take him and help him....How must it feel to be a parent and to know that you can't give your child the medical help they need?He went as far as putting a plea in the newspaper for help for his child but no-one offered to help him. He took him to AOH and pleaded with them to help and they said they would...The more I find out about this family called Acres Of Hope I'm so thankful to be a part of it...If we didn't have our own special needs little man coming home soon who knows..

I can't give awhole lot of info but if you guys could pray for a mission trip to Africa and a a guy named Tim I would appreciate it. The Lord knows who and why we are praying so just lift it up to him...It has the potential to affect a few lives so just pray...I'll let ya know more when I'm able..It's always good to know friends in high places.....:)

Ok so tomorrow is AOH sewing day with some friends of ours who is making the kids out fits..
They are making the girls dresses and the boys shorts..I will post pictures after I get home...

Sleep tight love ya all...

Is this a joke??? There isn't an update here! Are you trying to tell us that you didn't do anything this weekend? I find that hard to believe!

Prayin'

Robin,
I'm so glad that you have good friends close that support and encourage you. I'm so grateful for ours, too. It means the world to me.

I wish we could do something more for Darling Boy... of course, I wish we could adopt him, too... but we just aren't in a place to be able to with Henry coming home.

I haven't heard anything about my baby in weeks... its so hard not to call and ask about him!! I'm learning more about patience and trust. How about Joseph? Have you gotten an update recently? Are they still hopeful about getting him home in September with the new visa situation? I'm sure praying for you guys...
