Not today...

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
James 1:2-4

You don't know me -- I'm a blog-stalker -- but I am praying for your family right now. I am so, so sorry that you did not get the news you wanted today. I am lifting all five of you up to the Lord to ask that His hand be with the judge as he makse his decision and that he realizes how wonderful your family is for little Julianne.

So sorry to hear about court, but so thankful for your turning to Him and His word for comfort.

That verse has ministered to me on many a dark day.

Oh, I LOVE to hear words of faith amidst heartache. Those are the ones that mean so much to the rest of us. Thanks so much for sharing the words of truth, even as you had to share difficult news about the waiting.

I'm so sorry that the news today was "wait". :( I thought of you many times today, and will continue to pray for your precious family as God's perfect plan unfolds.

Nikki said...

Well, I wish we had something else in common besides not passing court! One day we will... we'll have our Ethiopian kids in our arms.

Thinking of you and praying for a short wait.

Amy, I didn't get to see you Thursday afternoon to ask. I am so sorry about your news. God has a greater plan for your family. I am thinking of what pastor Gary said a few weeks ago, that God's answers your prayers, but in a different way than you thought he would. God hears your voice crying out and He knows your pains right now, but He also knows the bigger, better plan. I am praying for you and your sweet baby Julianne!
