About Me

My photo

I am a wife, daughter, mother, bilingual teacher, poet, author, women's Bible study teacher, world traveler, orphan advocate, and an adoptive mother.  Our adoption journey has been filled with a lot of hurt and loss, along with even more hope, grace, and healing.  Through it we have experienced more of God than we ever bargained for and have watched Him miraculously redeem our story when we surrendered all the broken pieces to Him.

It's a mystery....

Yes, what the outcome of this reopened adoption case will be will remain a mystery to us until it is complete once again.  It is nerve-wracking and risky, to say the least.  However, I read this quote this morning that really struck me, so I thought I'd share.

"God knows that if He were to tell us everything we needed to know about our lives, assuming we could comprehend it, we would probably run off in desire and excitement to fulfill our purpose, without returning to the conversation........Mystery is an invitation to intimacy with God.  Instead of wasting your energy fighting mystery, allow mystery to stir you and guide you to keep asking and seeking and knocking." (Gary Barkalow, It's Your Call, p.43-44)

So, back to the yellow brick road, where the only step I know to take is the one illuminated, and I trust that the next one we are to take will be clear when it's time to take it.  In the meantime, we will embrace the opportunity to seek God's presence more.
