As the weeks close in towards the finish line of bedrest, that "homestretch" sometimes feels the hardest. I'd been praying for strength and just patience for all of us last week as we came upon week 10 of "mommy out of commission". I believe and know God hears our prayers but sometimes His response simply blows me away!!

Instead of giving us more physical energy for my awesome hubby and more emotional energy for me......He swooped down and rescued us!!.....well, at least that's how it felt : ) Phone calls started pouring in....and of course, in the form of the Lord's Army! People bringing us meals, taking Zachary for a special day of fun, 2 incredible cleaning ladies(now that was a gift just for me from God!), the girl's nursery room completely painted by one selfless young man, offers to paint our nursery furniture, calls of encouragement, Starbucks' coffee, visits from friends, pkgs. in the mail, and the KICKER!!!.......received a message from Special Delivery saying WE GOT DNA AUTHORIZATION!!!!! Oh yeah, and that all happened just last week : )

Thank you so much to all you prayer warriors out there! There really is nothing like the Body of Christ to the glory and praises of God! May you all have a blessed week and know I'm praying for all those beautiful babies needing to come home!! (ps. Our computer hasn't been working for a while so I haven't been able to blog)

Praise the Lord for His provision! He does provide exceedingly, abundantly more than we need!!

I am so happy that you got DNA authorization...check that off the list. Also, it is good to know that you are surrounded by people who care so much and are able to help you. Praise God!
