I wasn't expecting to update so soon- but mountains were moved today.
1. I decided to go to the Police Station for the FBI fingerprints and there was an open appt, so I quickly called my husband and had him come over too. Then I asked if we could get police clearance letters and it only took about 15 minutes and only $10. The Sherriff's dept. charged us $25 and we had to wait 2 weeks!
2. The psychologist agreed to do the evaluations for $250 each-not $750!
3. I found a beautiful pink dresser for only $20 and then she gave it to me free after sharing that it was for our future adopted daughter!
We are almost done!
-Notarizations on Sunday
-Psych eval's on Monday
-Last homestudy follow up on Tuesday
-REST and eat turkey on Thursday
So I can't end this post without speaking about faith- because it is being tested. And I love it! I remember a friend used to say, "Don't pray for faith, because then God is going to give you trials." And I would be bothered by this statement because trials give us dependence upon God and it's so easy to slowly start to feel self-reliant. Where do I get faith? The Bible tells me: "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17 Reading the Bible will increase my faith! Well, I've been praying for faith and listening to God's word because I am weak and don't have enough dependence on God- and guess what happened today? He moved mountains!
"If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20
