My emotions have been high, my spirit has felt numb, and my body has just felt worn out these last few days of pregnancy. Decided to check my e-mail one more time for a health update and new pics of Sarah. I prayed as I entered my password, " Lord, I just need some encouragement today". And although, I do not deserve it, His mercies abound for His children(even when they are complaining)....... so there it was, in my inbox..........PRE-APPROVAL FROM THE U. S. EMBASSY!!!! ...in just 39 days!!!
I confess that my "flesh's" first instinct is to want to worry that we haven't been kicked out of PGN yet and we must be kicked out before we can re-enter PGN with our U.S. pre-approval. But I'm beginning to learn in my spirit....no worries!!....the Lord has a plan and I submit to it, whatever it is!
The Lord also has graciously allowed a precious friend, mentor and teacher of mine to visit Sarah at Eagles Nest tomorrow while she is in Guate on a mission trip. Please pray for her this week as she goes about the work of the Lord which includes loving my daughter in my place(that hurts just to write it). He is SO good and His love endures forever! Love to you all, Marianne
