Story of my Life by Oatsvall Team | Edit Post
(permission granted for use of Katie's pictures)
So I woke this morning a little sad ... You see Suzanne, Anna, and some others are on their way to see Katie in Uganda ... I wanted so desperately to go with them and to hug Katie, see her kids, look the kids in the Amazima program in the eyes and tell them "WE SEE YOU AND WE CARE", and to just see all that God has in Uganda ... But it is not my time to go, it is my time to WAIT ... Financially we are saving to bring Abigail and Joseph home and it would not have been a good steward of our resources to go and I knew that in my head, but my heart was sad ... So what does God do ?? He shows me He cares about my feelings and has my sweet sweet friend Tina call and say, "Hey, God gave me a song this morning about WAITING and it makes me think of you (and another friend Jeanne)and all the waiting you have done lately, can I sing it to you?" ... I of course say yes, because Tina has the voice of like 20 angels and she just always blesses me .. As she begins to sing, I begin weeping on the phone and feeling covered in the Father's love ... He does understand me so well and He cares about my sad heart today and He wants me to know our time will come to go to Uganda when we bring home our kids ... I will see Katie then, I will look into the eyes of the children then and say "I see you and care." I will do so much more then because of my WAITING NOW ... Tina said we are constantly in a state of Waiting or Watching ... I pray people watch me WAIT well !!!
Now as for the group heading to Uganda ... We have been in prayer the last hour since their flight was cancelled and they were told that they would have to wait till tomorrow or Saturday to leave ... BUT NO, God stepped in and they were re-routed on a plane that only had 8 seats left (you got it ... exactly 8 people in this group) ... Suzanne was just praising the Father in her textes to me ... You can follow this group while they are in Uganda by going to joiningthejourney.blogspot.com
Plus a little sidenote of miracles ... Maggie (for the first time ever) fell asleep at 8:15 last night and slept till 9:00 this morning PEACEFULLY ... You guys keep those prayers coming ... Sleep is still such an issue for my princess (and me ) ...
Father, I praise you !!!!
