Revelation 3:8 (New International Version)
I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.

The child is the beauty of God present in the world – that greatest gift to a family.” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta)

We have our travel Date!!

This morning I woke up knowing very well it was Thursday. Thursdays are the days that families get submitted to the SDA. I figured maybe as they were submitting families they may just give our facilitator some hint of information about us. Well, I waited to hear from Nancy (our state side coordinator), I peaked over to our FSP to see if it still had $25...I think we all do this once in a while. I love seeing the 25 it is so much better than the zero. It means so much. Anyways, that is when I saw THE DATE. What did I do?? Scream of course! Yelling my husband's name and some of the oldest kids names. When they came into the den I was jumping up and down and they joined in. I didn't know what to do so I called my mother :)) Anyways, It has been a combination of making travel/flight plans, making sure to switch doctor appointments for the kids and a lot of walking back and forth kissing all the kids and thanking the Lord many many times. At one point I was crying just feeling blessed that God has given us so many beautiful gifts and here he was blessing us again. I felt as if we didn't deserve it. Thank you God.
We have 10 days to get ready.
