Scared

Hannah swam yesterday with a friend....well they played with dolls in the pool:) And they sang. I started listening to their songs and realized they were singing Bible verses....the other gal and her Mom are super singers and love music. (We are challenged in that area). I did not take it for granted that these two precious girls were singing God's Word. What a gift. Joshua 1:9 Be strong and cowageous, do not beeee tewafied, the Lord your God is wit you wherever you go! Need a translation? I need that reminder....to be strong and courageous. In Joshua 1:9 God commands me to be strong and courageous. This morning I don't feel very strong and courageous....


I am scared....I know I would be even more terrified if not for God and the peace he has given me. But the knots in my tummy tell me that there is quite a bit of scared still here!! Of course....I am a Mommy and this is big stuff this week for our babies...so I am scared and trusting.... MOWA should have reviewed our case by now, and we are hoping to hear no bad news today. And our case goes before the judge tomorrow. So please join us in prayer tonight!

I just finished Tom Davis's first fiction novel. You must read Scared. It is an excellent book....his heart for orphans is on every page. The people in the book are so fascinating and lovable and real. Buy it and read.

Praying here Natalie....I pray for you, your family, and your sweet twins in Ethiopia every day. Petitioning God today that today will be your day of Joy that overflows you....My new favorite bible verse is the verse that comes after Jer 29:11: "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you." What an amazing promise! I pray that God hears the cries of your heart today.....Much love, Robin

Isaiah 41:10, "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strenghten thee: yea, I will help thee: yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." Praying for you!
