Psalm 37:7 "Be still before the the LORD and wait patiently for Him..."

This morning, God used our KLOVE devotional book to whack me in the head again...Today's blurb is entitled, "REST IN THE LORD, AND WAIT PATIENTLY FOR HIM. Be patient, it'll happen in God's time!"

Honestly, this isn't really what I wanted to hear today! I want to hear the phone ring with news that a specific little boy in Ethiopia is waiting for me to be his mama. I want to open an email and see his precious face.

I'm not at all upset with our agency since we were told that our wait for referral would be 4-7 months (or sooner), but this wait is worse than waiting to give birth (although physically, I am more comfortable!) We have been pregnant for almost a year, and there is more waiting to come before we can bring our guy home. Those who have been here before or are here with us understand.

Please, pray for us as we wait. Pray for our son. Pray for the people who are loving him and caring for him and for those who are working hard to get him home.

Trust in God that He has the timing correct. We are going through the exact same wait and for about the same time. Although it is hard to sleep at night because our call will be most probably in the whee hours of the morning. We are praying for you and hope you get the call soon! Take care from Guam, Scott and Jean.
