The countdown is on!
Wednesday morning we leave the land of cotton and peanut fields and head for the great Rockies.
I’m excited. We’re excited! About what the Lord will do in us through our time at Ellerslie.
I know it’ll be stretching, and thrilling, and growing…
and we are so grateful to God for opening up this doors for us!
One last post before we head out…
I’m hoping we’ll be able to pick up Wi-Fi from someone else in the apartment complex,
but that’s wishful thinking.
If not, I’ll hope to pop in and out now and then to say hi!

[I love little lanterns]
[some favorite toys ♥]
[cookies from a friend]
[little girls' bath toys]
[auntie from far-away who do fun tea parties]
[sets of piggies]
[ a grouping of three]
All these pictures had some common thread… anyone catch it?
They all are groupings of three.
Symbolizing, showing, hinting that….
well, we’re thrilled and excited and humbled
that God has heard our hearts’ desire and has granted new life!
I’m so humbled though,
because I know I am only one among many women who have desired a child.
Why God has chosen to grant our desire and withhold it from others is a mystery.
I don’t understand it, but I receive with an open hand whatever it is He desires for our family.
Beyond the excitement, I have been quite sick the past month
[thus the real reason for my hiding my face].
A lot of the time has been on the sofa or in bed.
It’s definitely been a challenge with preparing to leave
and with all that has needed to be done.
Friends and family have been beyond caring and helpful, and I don’t know how to thank them enough.
They’ve been Jesus’ hands and feet to me the past few weeks!
I know the sickness will not last forever.
But I will ask for your prayers the next few days with traveling and the many hours and miles to go…
But sickness or no sickness, we are greatly anticipating Little Wee Baby next April!
[or, as late as I go, it'll probably be next May ]
[eleven weeks and counting]
