In The Home Stretch

We are in the home stretch.
Today we had our fire inspection.
Monday is the safety audit.
This is a time I can honestly say I am stressed 
but I am beyond thankful for people praying for us.

Because I can look at my life; look at my weaknesses and think
who in the world thought I should be a mother, 
let alone a foster mother.
I can look at myself and compare.
Or I can look to Jesus and be in awe.

In awe of how He lead us here.
In awe of how little my thinking was a year ago, when God busted that little box.

On days like today where my stress and anxiety and weakness overtake my thoughts and I kind of get trapped in them
I am thankful for my husband who when he sees how trapped in my head I am just holds me. I don't need to say a thing, that man knows me too well, so he just holds me.
For a friend that seems to text me asking to pray for me exactly when I need it.
For Kari Jobe. I know, I'm thanking some famous lady who will never know. But I am thankful for her lyrics that always speak exactly to my weak heart. 

What we have left:
Turning in A LOT of paperwork.
Safety Audit.
Rules & Policies Class

We would love your prayers to calm & prepare our hearts for this huge journey. Also prayers for our family members and friends who did not get the choice whether or not they wanted to be involved in foster care but they will be, that their hearts will also be prepared. 


  1. Hey there! I love Kari Jobe. She's such a wonderful singer and so inspirational. Would love for you to come link up at my blog hop.
