Through JEREMIAH'S eyes !!!


The excitement is bubbling over here about our trip tomorrow ... I can't wait to board a plane w/ Jeremiah and watch through his eyes all that he sees ... Jeremiah has a very tender heart and I am praying God shows him many things ... I want him to understand that the children he meets, plays with, and sees are his brothers and sisters ... I want him to open his heart further to what God's will is for his life not man or ours ... I want him to see a God that can do the impossible ... I want him to learn about deep faith like I did when I was in Uganda ... I want him to understand that life is only worth living if you live it for CHRIST ... I want him to come home and share with his friends, his brother and sisters and his dad how AFRICA CHANGED HIM ... I want when he steps into a classroom, on the court, on stage, in church, or on the football field how he can IMPACT people for Christ ...

I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that this mama's heart is full ... I can't wait for Jeremiah to meet his brother and sister ... He has talked non-stop this week about meeting them and how they will love him ... I say AMEN to that !!!

Please continue to pray and I will do my best to update as internet allows ...

Praying for you, Jeremiah, Joseph, and Daisy. I have full confidence this trip will have life long lessons for Jeremiah. What a privilege it will be to see how God's plans for Jeremiah's life will be shaped in Africa.

My son's Tiger team from Memphis played you guys this weekend (actually we attempted, you pretty much kicked our behinds). I couldn't go so I did not see you or get a chance to meet you, but I wish that I had. My husband came home telling me about your team and what the team name meant - I love it!! I am so excited for you guys - I have only just now read your last post about going to Uganda, but I plan to read more about you guys. I can't imagine what your son will experience this week and how amazing it will be for him to meet his new brother and sister. We adopted our daughter from Guatemala and I still hope one day we will be able to adopt again. I will be praying for you guys and will follow your journey.
