3 AM CHAT W/ MY KIDS !!!

When the ring came over the computer my heart was pounding with excitement and up popped Curry, Joseph and Daisy .... OH THOSE PRECIOUS FACES ... Daisy said all of our names (the kids loved hearing their  name from their sister) and Joseph said hello and signed "I LOVE YOU!"  I woke everyone up, but Maggie (no sense torturing us all the rest of the night ...lol)  to say hello and of course going back to sleep will be next to impossible !!!! They look amazing and I wanted to jump through the screen and give them a big hug and kiss !!!!  TECHNOLOGY IS AMAZING  ... Hard to believe 1/2 way around the world my kids were sitting on a couch in the middle of the day looking at us and we are sitting at our table in Brentwood, TN in our PJ's looking at them ...

Please pray for sweet Curry's heart ... She has loved her time volunteering at Amani and it will be hard for her to leave all her friends there and the children ... I can see in her face that God has grown her in many ways and can't wait to hear all the stories she will share w/ me ... Daisy and Curry have made a special bond and for that I am so thankful ... I pray they will always have a sweet big sister/ little sister relationship !!!

I am learning to be content in my wait for them ... My burning desire is like a flame from the Lord, but I am choosing to use that FLAME as a light to the Lord !!!  I  have done the wait thing before with Emily and Maggie ....  It is never easy, but there is much hope, glory, and a learned obedience to prayer as you WAIT ... I want peace to wash over me each day and for that to happen I have to give it all over to the LORD ...

Thanks for your prayers !!!! Love You All
