Time 4 A Break ....

I am going to take a week off the computer ... God is tugging at my heart right now and there are some things I really need to focus on and pray about ...

Please continue to pray for the Chapman Family ... This family of faith, love, and compassion is hurting ...

We are up to 43 Writers for the book ... I ask you all to pray for this project ... God is changing things in my heart the last few days about the book and the direction He would have me to go ... I just know the Lord has plans for your stories and the people they are to reach, so please take your time writing and pray over your story ... Pass my email along to anyone else you may think would like to contribute their story ...

Love You All ... Give your family a hug today and tell them you love them !!!

I think anyone who has ever adopted is praying for the Chapmans as there are such a inspiration to so many. They have been in my thoughts and prayers since I heard..My heart just breaks for their son BUT this is why a accident is called a accident. Take care and I am praying for you and your family also.
Take Care.

I'll be continuing to lift the Chapmans up in prayer. I'll pray for their son, as well.

Praying for each family member by name. Praying for you, and praying for God to give me His words in our/His adoption story. I have not started writing, but am pondering some things to include and plan to write now that the craziness of school year end is over. I do not want to rush it........too important. Hugs to you my dear friend. Been listening to Chapman's, "BE STIll" song this weekend as it is one of my favorites. I have cried, prayed and been encouraged God still reigns with love and power and when we can't trace His hands, we trust His heart.

Gwen, I am praying for you. We have all praying for the Chapman family and still grieve so deeply for their loss.

I am thinking of writing our adoption story out and may send it on to you. I am not a great writer, but the story needs to be told. It is such a miracle.

I pray the Lord blesses you with peace and encouragement this week.
In His Grace,
Sivje

Praying for the Oatsvall's & Chapman's, knowing God is in control--but wishing I had a glimpse into his future plans.

Love you & your heart for spreading his word on adoption.

Keep praying for us. The boys are working on Tim :o)

Just found your blog ... and LOVE it! I should have gone to bed a long time ago, but I just kept reading back posts. You are a blessing and encouragement.

We, too, have a Jeremiah and an Elijah ... so I connected right away.

We, too, had bio. kids and then began the adoption process. However ... we had 10 bio., thought we were done for 5 years ... and God just brought 3 siblings from Ghana into our home. Crazy!

I have had a writing and speaking ministry for over 20 years, so would LOVE to contribute to your book. I'll be praying about what specific angle of our adoption story to write about.

Blessings to you, this week, as you take time with the Lord.
