God is God

Well, my Tuesday thoughts did not stay with me even through Wed. By Wed I was so disatisfied with God's timing that early Thursday morning I clearly heard Him ask me in my heart, "Who do I think I am to question Him, the Sovereign Lord, about His timing and His will for Ellie or for me?" This time I got it. I really get it. I am sure He will have to remind me again, but when He speaks that plainly and convicts my heart so clearly, even as slow as I am, I get it. In His sweet mercy He allowed me to see myself as I needed to, and to see Him as I needed to. Then and only then did we receive our travel approval. This afternoon about 1pm we got the news that we are approved for travel and tentatively leaving on the 29th of March. Yipee! Yea God! That will make our "gotcha day" on Monday, April 2nd. We will return to the states somewhere between the 11th and the 14th depending on our consulate appointment. I am so thankful for all that God is doing!

Hi Jackie,
Marlee turned 14 months old today, and we also got our TA!

We have a tenative travel date for 3/22. Just depends on if our CA is confirmed.

If this goes as planned, you'll be right behind us!

God is good!

Your Ellie is adorable, and I can't wait to celebrate when you hold her! Thank you for the sweet comments you left on my site! We are part of an awesome Dreamers Group, aren't we. PTL for your TA, and I hope you get your CA tomorrow. We're waiting on it as well. Good thing God is in the details!
