A note from God... yes, really!

OK... so, we received some info... it was entitled... good and bad news.. from the agency..
Good news is that things are working out with a couple of 'things' they were working out in country...
Bad News: travel can't/won't/ isn't gonna happen for 3-4 more weeks...
meaning... the dossier that they had me redo in March will most likely have to be redone.. this is the 5th time... This is dossier #5 for us folks.. yes, #5!

The emotions and absolute low I felt with all this news is almost indescribable..
even after processing the info... and knowing that 3-4 weeks will go by QUICKLY.. and that it will be better for my job related stuff happening... Phil's job, the girls, etc... IT was still tough... the ups and downs.. thinking you are going.. finding out you are not... whew... it's stressful on a girls mind, brain, and heart! :)

so... while I'm trying to remain positive... keep my focus on my Jesus, My God, my Lord... knowing he does have a plan... he hasn't forgotten us.. and that HE will come through for us... the the following note was dropped in my lap (it was SO JUST for me)... Just EXACTLY below:

"I have started a good work in you. When you feel overwhelmed and at the end of your rope, look up and remember that your help comes from me! Please don’t lose heart in doing good for in my perfect timing I promise you will see a reward if you do not give up. Be confident that I will faithfully complete the things I have birthed in you."

Psalm 121:1-2
Galatians 6:9
Philippians 1:6

How can anyone remain stressed or emotional after that??? Thank you so much Lord for EVERYTHING!! :)

I am so sorry for this bad news. I can't imagine doing a dossier for the 5th time. I am so sorry you are waiting more and have more paperwork. We will continue to pray for the completion of this adoption. He who began a good work will be faithful to complete it. I am encouraged by your amazing steadfast faith in our God. Most would want to give up and quit. God bless your journey as you continue to press forward to meet your son(s).
