Quick update: We finished and submitted our profile books and they are awesome! We have one if you want to see it, just ask! (I'm very proud of it). Our homestudy was also finally finished last week, but not approved yet. Other than that we are waiting...
But, there is always hope in the waiting. God would not have designed us to wait for eternity (literally), if we couldn't handle it, if there was no hope in it, and if there wasn't something especially sweet about His presence while waiting (or on days you are just more aware of your waiting). Waiting means more reliance on God and not on myself. It is a constant reminder that His plan and His timing is always better than mine. The amount of time we have to wait is perfect, and will ensure that we get our baby. It is also a reminder that God always provides. We will get everything we need when He sees fit and when it is best for us.
So Waiting Quietly is fitting for this blog, even as it changes to not be so much about the adoption process in the future. Waiting quietly is waiting without complaining, without worry, without focusing on the wait. Waiting quietly is resting in God's presence, settling in to the wait, enjoying the blessings we are experiencing now, and preparing our hearts for what God has in store.
Psalm 62: 1-2 - I wait quietly before God for my victory comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken.
And as always,
Any questions or comments are always welcome!!!
