Moving mountains

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


  1. Oh, this is so great! Praise God!


  2. Hey Gentry, my husbands a notary.. if you are paying to get your docs notarized, I wanted to volunteer him to do this for you guys for free. We had so much to get notarized and some did ours for free and it really helped. Let me know if you need him.


Thank you for sharing your kind words!
