Chain Link Catch Up

Well, after two month of slacking, I put two more links to our DTE (dossier to Ethiopia) chain today.

May link... (six months)

Verse: Heb 12:1-2a (the verse from Kids Club this year)
"Thererfore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."

Yes, that is a Kids Club shirt in the background to remind us where our time was spent in the weeks before and after our six months of DTE.

Here's the thing: I love this verse because while we wait, wait, wait we know that's the race God has marked out for us right now. We can't grumble or complain or lament it because it's exactly the race He has for us i am not saying I like it. I am just saying it is what He knew it would be.

DTE 7 Months (but it says six because I am not with it today) 6.18.12
Verse John 14:1 "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me."
Yes, that is our thermostat in the background. Our air broke this week so we are living in the heat of the moment. Pun intended. But really, what a great verse yeah?

The pic I took was blurry so please forgive. I am prepping for a trip so the fact that I have this up at all is a happy day. Plus, who wants to do anything productive in an 85 degree house? Not I said the hot girl.

Yes, our chain sure is lengthening. He knew. He knew all along.

At least it's cute right?


  1. So, I love the chain idea. I wish I'd thought of something to pass the time these last two years that we've been wandering along. Good to "meet" you here in blog land.

  2. Girl! I don't know where my brain has been! I know you've been a follower for a bit now on my blog. Forgive me that I didn't follow you back? Your posts are just what my heart needed to read today as we finally decided on the country we are adopting from and are moving forward. Prayers for your sweet boy have been said all morning for you!
