How R Lives Intersect ...

WATCH VIDEO FIRST



I have been waiting to post this because the story is so amazing I needed a couple of weeks to process how God causes are paths to cross with one anothers ... I fully believe we should be able to give account at any moment about what the Lord is doing in our life ... I received this You Tube video from a friend (who was sent it from a friend and so on) ... It was Friday night late and I watched and cried as I always do when a child who is an orphan joins their forever family ... This issue is at the core of my heart (like so many of you), so anyways Anna (my pretend sister) and I are watching and just felt so touched by the story... I felt God confirming my heart for Ethiopia ... The very next day as I was sitting in the gym for the 3rd game of the day this lady comes walking down the hallway w/a baby in a carrier ...Anna says, "That is the lady from the You Tube video." I look closer and do what any normal stalker would do ... I JUMP UP IN HER FACE AND GO "I AM NOT CRAZY, BUT I JUST SAW YOUR STORY ON YOU TUBE LAST NIGHT" ... She smiled and I looked into Levi's most precious eyes and he smiled at me ... We talked for a minute and exchanged numbers ... It was a most precious moment!!! It is just another way that God blesses us ... He puts us in each other's way ... Some people we seek, some people we run into, or some people we trip over by accident, and some we even bump into in cyberspace, but whatever it is that we do to find each other, to encourage each other, to pray for each other ... IT IS THE LORD WHO MAKES IT ALL POSSIBLE ...

Have a great rest of the week and know that there is someone out there you probably don't know really well that is praying for you TODAY !!!

Isn't is just the best when God confirms in our hearts what we try so hard to follow, all thru our tears, joys, doubts, enthusasium, etc.
He always makes His ways clear to us. He's just the BEST!!!

Praying for even more confirmations to come your way, sweet Gwen! :)

What a special post, Gwen. "Most precious eyes" is so true. What a beautiful video and a perfect story of how God listens and answers, all in perfect timing.

Kim said...

Love, Love, Love, the video! My brother Dan and his wife Kim are adopting from Ethiopia. I have been following different blogs and watching their journeys, brings me to tears every time. I am so excited for my brother. I'm also excited that you feel God leading you all to that country. The people there are so beautiful. Not just in appearance but in their hearts most of all.
Do you have any updates on Maggie?
Continually praying,
Kim

Great video! It reminds me of my time in ET and remembering the love the nannies showed my son is so precious. I am excited to see what God is going to do in your life. We are starting our 2nd adoption from ET now for an older child this time.

THat is so cool. I love it when things happen like that. Has to be a God thing.

Kristy said...

Gwen you never cease to amaze me. I was sitting at my computer blogging and it had been real dark and rainy here all day and when I got to your blog and clicked on the video no more than levi was put in his mothers arms the sun started shining. That's a God Wink don't you think. Thank you for sharing this, just looking into his eyes has just made my day.

God bless you.

Love, Kristy

Kristy said...

Gwen can you let me know the names of those songs and who sings them please??? They are beautiful.
