I know I already mentioned "the BIG deal" but I need to elaborate...
God is so faithful to provide. Charlie got the BIG deal we'd been praying about. The commission from this deal will pay for more than half the adoption!!!! We have yet to get a deal even a 1/8 this big in the 7 years Charlie has worked at Containment Corporation and now we get it??!! Why do I continue to worry, doubt and fret? I know God has shown us that He wants us to adopt...why do I worry? He will provide for the journeys He takes us on. It's as simple as that.
I also checked our agencies blog and the wait time for a referral is now 6-8 months for a boy and 9-11 months for a girl. This is about a three to four month LESS wait. This could change at anytime but that is the current trend. I can't wait to meet this little one God has placed in our hearts and lives!
God also provided this chapter in Psalms for us to rest in...God is good. :D
"Praise the Lord,
Praise the Lord O my soul
I will praise the Lord all my life
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
Do not put your trust in princes,
in mortal men, who cannot save.
When their spirit deparst they return to the ground;
on that very day their plans come to nothing.
Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord his God,
the maker of heaven and earth,
the sea and everything in them-
the Lord, who remains faithful forever.
He upholds the cause of the oppressed
and gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free,
the Lord gives sight to the blind,
the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
the Lord loves the righteous.
The Lord watches over the alien
and sustains the fatherless and the widow,
but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
The Lord reigns forever,
your GOd, O Zion, for all generations.
Praise the Lord." (italics mine)
