My sister posted this quote on an email she wrote...

"Remembering our dependence on past mercies kindles gratitude. Gratitude is past-oriented dependence; faith is future-oriented dependence."
~John Piper, A Godward Life

How true this is! We have much gratitude for the many mercies the Lord has bestowed on us, the many blessings He has lavished on us...we pray for faith now as we begin this unknown road before us in adoption. We know once again God will bless and continue to be the merciful God He is just such an unknown path that we have not and will not be able to plan or control! Not that any of us has any control in our lives, it just seems like it sometimes. :)

Please lift us up in prayer as this unknown road unfolds and as we lay at the Lord's feet our hopes and desires. Thank you for your friendships!
