When we found out about these little girls, I started working on a new blog. Not that there’s anything at all wrong with this blog. From this point on our lives will be different, our stories will be different, and our photos will have more little faces in them. Because…we have said “yes” to something sort of crazy and I would like to introduce you to our new blog…
Change December 3, 2010
If we get these two girls, I can’t quite grasp yet how much our lives are going to change. I also can’t quite grasp yet how much I’m going to have to change. I know it will take me some time for me to become the mom I’ll have to be. Moms of two kids can get away with doing things quite differently than moms of four. And I know I won’t automatically become a mom of four overnight. It will be a transformation that will take place over many months….years?
Part of me believes I will rise to the occasion. Is that confidence? Arrogance? Stupidity? But part of me believes there is no way we can do this. I can’t possibly handle all that I’ll have to handle if we adopt two more kids. I’m not organized enough. I’m not patient enough. Can we financially support four kids? Is our marriage strong enough? How will I keep my business going? What about homeschooling? All these fears and questions run through my mind daily.
But…this is the thing that I know. If we are meant to adopt these kids, God will change us. He will make us who we need to be. He will transform us. I have no doubt about that. Will it happen overnight? No way. I believe that God has already seen the family we will become. He sees our whole lives. He sees the future of these girls. He knows the people they will become. He knows it all. And right now, that’s about all that I know. But that’s enough.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Blog neglect December 1, 2010
So long about August, September, and even part of October I was worried about business,or the the lack of it. And then, WHAM! I’m drowning in too many sessions to keep my head above water. Okay, that’s not really true. I am keeping my head above water and keeping up with things fairly well, but this blog is just not a priority right now at all. I think in about a week I’ll be past the holiday craziness. Then I’ll get back to posting photos and other stuff about what our family has been up to. But for now I’m surviving on too much coffee and too little sleep. So check back later. In the meantime, you can fill me in on your holiday craziness.
