The faithful hand of God

Wednesday, January 23rd...(thoughts from my journal)
"Equip us Lord for whatever challenges we will face on our trip to China while we are there and as we come home.  We release all of our fears and anxieties to you...we lay them down at the foot of your throne for there is power in the cross. 

You are Sovereign King, Holy God, prince of peace, our redeemer and faithful friend.  Thank you for choosing us to parent Lily and raise her to know of your all consuming love.  We rejoice over Lily today with great joy and anticipation for the life we have ahead with her. 

I know it's early but Lord, we would love to receive our travel approval soon...that is our heart's desire to go sooner than later to begin our life with Lily.  You know our longing but we rest and trust in your sovereign plan and timing.  Give us eyes to see and ears to hear you sweet Savior. 

Monday, January 28th ...we received our TA (travel approval)!

Thank you God for answered prayer, for the gift of Lily and this time of joy and anticipation for what lies ahead.  IT'S TIME to jump for JOY!!!
