As, we prepare for Jesus' birthday my heart is excited with anticipation, but longing for our daughter that is still so far away from us. I know God is with her preparing her for our family and wrapping her with his protective arms. We are hoping she will be here next year for Christmas. Oh what a wonderful Christmas that will be. Until then, I pray for her, long for her and cry for her. Sweet girl, we love you with all our hearts. We are coming, as soon as we can.
I am also filled with anticipation at what God has in store for us in this coming year. Our church is launching an "Outlive your Life" campaign. Wow! Wait a minute God. I thought you might be finished with us for a while. Well, I guess not. I am so happy to be on this Life's journey with my Savior. Can't wait to see what he does next. I am just leaning on HIM, letting him guide me as he holds my families hand to follow HIM.
Wishing Everyone the Best Christmas Ever!

Our FBI fingerprints reports came in the mail today. I have been going to the mail box for weeks, opening it and looking in and being disappointed. Today, Mike checked the box and came walking casually in the house and handed me 2 brown envelopes that were from the FBI. I nearly jumped out of my skin, opened them and did the Whoop Hoo dance around our kitchen, yelled and laughed with happiness. Well, it took 6 weeks and 3 days for us to get these reports back and man it felt like 6 months. I am so glad Mike was home to share in the experience and happiness of when these came back to us. I know everything is in God's perfect timing but it sure is hard to wait patiently at times. So, glad to get this back and begin to move forward with our home study and complete our dossier. Precious little girl, we are praying for you, yearning to know your face, and can't wait to swoop you up in our arms and hold you tight.
May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace... Romans 15:13

Here's a picture of our 2nd annual " Marshmellow Wreath" We hang it in the yard for the birds at Christmas. Oh what fun! We had a great time putting all those marshmellows on the wreath.
This is my most favorite time of the year. We love to ride around and look at Christmas lights while listening to Christmas music. I Love it! It's all about baby Jesus, family and friends. Now if we could get a little snow. It would be perfect. Doubt that will happen here in Mississippi.
Enjoy this special time of the year, take time for friends and family. Life is too short to miss out on the Joy of Christmas.
