Sometimes it is really hard to smile

I like to be a cheerful, fairly peppy person.
-------------------------------

It is hard hearing that we have start the home study all over just because our agency couldn't get their act together months ago... and Now that we are moving...we have to start over. I just don't want to be alone in the big ole house! Yes, i do have friends.... but sigh. I want to add a lil one or two to the mix!
---------------------------
I'm just a tad discouraged today.

Wow- you have had a tough time at this. :(

Your Dad was at our house tonight! We had fun.

I'm so sorry! I will pray for you as the Lord brings you to my mind! God is doing amazing things in your life and the best is yet to come! :)

I'm sorry to hear that, Rae. I was just reading a few days ago in Psalms about how God keeps count of our tossings and has our tears in a bottle. In other words, he cares about every hurt and struggle, and he knows exactly what's going on.

I know you'll be AWESOME parents and I believe with all my heart that God has just the kids for you guys, already planned out with the timing and every detail. Maybe all these struggles will deepen your trust in God and make you an even better testimony of grace to your kids.

Love you!

How discouraging...I just read in Luke about how God gives us only good gifts. He is not a bad father who gives a stone instead of bread. Know that He will always give you what is best. Hang in there!

You're singing my song... I just keep my eye on the end goal. I may be 70 by the time I get there, but I will get there and so will you!

I'm sorry Rachel. I think it's about time me and my little ones come on over and have a day with you. I think Samantha needs to try out the swing set. Hang in there. God has a plan.

Kelli said...

I will be praying for you!

I'm sorry. They need foster parents so bad...then they do stupid stuff like this. Go figure.

Sorry for this set back - God's timing is perfect and our impatience is just another opportunity for Him to show us a better way. It is more than a little frightening that the people who deal with the lives of little children are so incredibly incompetent with paperwork. Makes you wonder how truly competent they are in the dealing with kids things.

How did I miss this? Ugh! I remember this "fun" time. We got certified the first time three days before they closed our local office, stayed with them for months because they swore it wouldn't affect us. Then six months later had to start over anyways. Does your radio station beg for foster parents to sign up like ours does? It makes me want to puke.

God spped my friend.

Just wanted to let you know that I prayed for you today. I can't pretend to completely understand, but please know that you are cared for and being upheld in prayer.
