Today it was back to work after being off 3 days to attend Jon’s grandpa’s funeral. The trip went well and it was a great time of celebrating his life. We were overwhelmingly blessed by being given his grandpa’s car. The cool thing to this story is that Jon and I have only had one vehicle for the past 4 years- to the exact date! We sold our second vehicle April 13, 2006 and were given a 1998 Ford Taurus on April 13, 2010. God knew our desires and provided in a way that only HE can! Then, today I am feeling overwhelmed by our adoption process. Our next step is to pay our agency activation fee, which is $3000. It seems like a daunting amount and it’s not even the largest amount yet. I am just feeling discouraged that money has to be the reason why we can’t be matched with a birthmother yet. This morning as I was reading the verse, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer, and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” [Phil 4:6] I was reminded that the Lord is in control and just as He provided a second vehicle He will provide the money that we need to move forward in our adoption process.
