Waiting on the Lord

This morning as I was reading in Psalms, this verse just really spoke to me.
"Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord."
Psalm 27:14- NIV
I also like this version:
"Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!"
Psalm 27:14- NKJV
 I do in fact feel as if I've been waiting on the Lord for the past 2 years and still am in regards to having a child. Now we are beginning another journey of waiting on the Lord. Waiting on the opportunity to take in the right children and hopefully adopting those children.
Every time I see a new face on the adoption web site, I get excited. Then I have to take a real look at the logistics of taking in 3 or 4 children (because they are always a sibling group of that size) and consider being a parent to that particular age group (they also always have one or two maybe three in the age range we are looking for, but then there is at least one that is quite a bit older than we were thinking). In the end, I just ask God to give us wisdom and guidance and to let us know when the right child or children come up.
There may be many types of things that you are waiting on the Lord for. But please realize, as I have to do everyday, that God's timing is best, even if we don't understand it.
Wait on the Lord and HE will strengthen you heart!!!

Things are happening

Well, for nearly the past month things have been out of the ordinary. First of all, we were coming home from a family ski trip and my friend called to ask if I could watch her baby boy for the week. I agreed, turns out that she needed someone for about a month until her daycare starts. So we are enjoying our time with little C this month! Also, my husband has only been working on and off (seems more off lately..haha!) so we have started some MAJOR projects. Project number one is actually coming along quite nicely. We tore off the original front porch of our home and my husband has built us a new one. It currently needs painted and the floor put on. Project number two is repainting the entire exterior of our house. So far, all we have accomplished on that is a patch on the front of the house where we tested the color and part of the railing on the porch and a few pieces of trim around the porch. SO, that means there is still plenty to be done, but oh well at least it is coming along.
You wanna know the biggest happening?!? We received our temporary foster care license in the mail today!!!! AND our final home inspection is scheduled for Wednesday morning!!!
Things are happening my friends, things are happening!!
Hope all is well, I hope to be back around more often soon! ;)
