we leave sooooon!!!!

pray pray PRAY for us!!! we're leaving so soon to get our amos!
our family has a lot happening (as you can tell from previous posts).
our house is on the market, 
we're going to uganda for a month to get our amos,
we're trying to finish up projects around the house to be ready to sell, 
we're packing,
& the list continues..........

last week i felt overwhelmed with stress & sadness. i realized i was grieving.
grieving over leaving all our boys have ever known, leaving my dear/sweet/beautiful friends, leaving the place michael & i began our relationship, leaving the season of the Lord taking us through many many hard things & many joys.
this will be a lot of "new" for us & sometimes the "old" is just more comfortable, 
even if the "new" is better for us. 

i lift up my eyes to the hills.
from where does my help come?
my help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven & earth.

He will not let your foot be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber. 
behold, He who keeps Israel 
will neither slumber nor sleep.

the Lord is your keeper;
the Lord is your shade on your right hand.
the sun shall not strike you by day, 
nor the moon by night.

the Lord will keep you from all evil;
He will keep your life.
the Lord will keep
your going out & your coming in
from this time forth & forevermore.
psalm 121

the Father has given me so much peace & joy over the past couple days! i don't feel stressed (thank you for your prayers megan & steph!!!)!
i feel calm & i am enjoying this time with my guys.

pray for grace for us & the Lord's sanctifying work in us as we travel to Uganda as a family. may we see more clearly what our GOOD GOOD God has done for us as we in turn adopt amos into our little family.
