a sampling of sorts:
[viewing a video on Thanksgiving about adoption...C's jaw dropped when he heard that there are 145 million orphans in the world]
whispering to me during service: "mommy, that's a lot of people that need a family. i'm glad we're adopting."
me too, bud. me too.
[praying tonight before bedtime]
"and dear God, please forgive me for dumping out my Clear Blue bottle to give the money to Aunt Sarah and Uncle Matty for their adoption. i knew You would be ok with it."
[a conversation one evening]
C: "mommy, why haven't we adopted yet?"
"buddy, its really complicated...we're going to. but sometimes God's timing isn't our timing. mommy has to pray for patience, too..."
C: [very matter of fact] "sometimes i run out of patience. but then i ask God to fill me back up again, and He does."
i was blown away by his very child-like answer...and then i realized how right he was. it really IS that easy...
Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him.
