Braxton's family was there with us and we were so blessed to make new friends : )
After such a long morning, we came back to the hotel took LONG naps... esp. since it was raining, no pool today : (
At the Embassy we met Lisa, Steve and baby Kella for the first time... which is pretty funny considering we're from the same town. They took us to a fabulous steakhouse tonight to celebrate our adoptions and we were so blessed by this AMAZING family! We are so thankful for God's provision in even meeting friends at this stage in our adoption : ) The pic above is us at the restaurant where Sarah had NO interest in her toys and apparently thought my plate was something she could eat!
Me, Lisa and our girls... I can hardly believe we only met today : ) We were serenaded by these talented musicians... it was such a special and fun evening!
My recent Bible reading has been out of an old favorite... Ecclesiastes. Today was certainly a "time to rejoice" and we praise God for His sweet mercies and precious gifts. After learning so much through different types of trials and sadness over the past few years, I truly recognize the truth that there is a time or season for everything. As we savor our day of rejoicing, our prayers and thoughts are not far from those who are experiencing a different "time" in their life and we hope and pray that no matter the season, HE WILL BE GLORIFIED!
It's getting late so until tomorow... blessings to our friends and family! ps. Sarah is feeling a little bit better today, thank you for praying!
