Time To Water My Roots ....

Some Fun Pictures from our past week .... We got the honor of painting some canvases that will be going to China to Maria's Big House of Hope, We had a fabulous time at basketball this weekend, and a much needed DATE NIGHT ... Blog Ya N A WK!






I am signing off for a week to head out of town with my family ... I am going to take my bible, a couple of good books, and some music ... NO COMPUTER .... I need sometime immersed with the FATHER and some focused time w/ my hubby and kids ...

I know how easy it is to get busy doing kingdom work without spending time alone w/ the Father and I think with the t-shirt and necklaces sales for our adoption, planning our adoption benefit concert, Katie's fundraiser, and trying to be there for everybody, I have neglected my walk w/ Christ lately ... It is easy to get stressed thinking what if the concert isn't successful, how else can I raise the money needed to bring Abigail and Joseph home, what am I forgetting to do, when all along I KNOW that it is all in the Father's hands ... He will bring to the concert who ever is suppose to be there and He will bring the RANSOM for my children in Uganda in His timing and I just need some time to sit w/ Him and strengthen my faith, re-fill my cup, and fall into a place of peace with His plan for our journey ...

I love you all ... and can't wait to tell you about a great week of watering and watch as the fruit Christ grows in me reaches out to others ...

Thanks always for your support, prayers, and encouragement !!!

LORD, BLESS JUNE 28TH and open many hearts !!!

Just wanted you to know I was at Kamp Kanakuk parents day... I passed by an adorable mom & stopped dead in my tracks. I stalked her up the bleachers & sweetly told her I wasn't a weirdo, but I saw she was wearing a Team Oatsvall T shirt!!!! We became fast friends in the stands & talked adoption & Katie Davis:))))
I love your friend Tracy!!!
