Happy New Year & Philippians 4:6
We had a wonderful Christmas with lots of family, lots of laughs and lots of good memory making moments!! Now on to the New Year 2012! Every New Year Chris & I set goals for ourselves and for our family for the new year. We had done it on New Year's Eve but I needed more thinking time so I think we'll do it this weekend! We met several of our goals from last year and will probably put some of the ones not met back on this years list.
Lately I'm frustrated with myself at being anxious about our adoption process! We were asked to turn everything in ASAP in December by our adoption agency and then.... nothing. It's kinda strange but I know that God has a plan. I know our baby girl will be presented to us when she is ready... blah blah blah. I've done this before. I have 3 kids to keep me busy. Why oh why am I anxious about this. I try not to think about it. I keep trying to tell myself it'll happen in June or this summer so I can put it out of my mind. In the mean time people keep asking me if I'm crazy to want to add another child to my bunch. Today when someone asked I said "Yep I am." I was feeling tongue tied when asked that before but now in all reality I am nuts and I'm so excited for it! I have 2 kids that are potty trained and can dress themselves and everyone sleeps great so bring on another!!!!!!!!!!!
I love my kids. I love our family. I can't wait for our final member to join us and sleep on my chest and coo (and cry and spit up and everything else!!). Yes, it will be tough but a good tough. Ok so that's where we are at! No news and trust me when I have some I am not afraid to tell and ask for prayers!!!! For now I will stay busy with work, house decorating-- I think I'm going to redo the kids rooms, and making awesome memories with my littles who I love with all my heart!!
PS And yes I am focusing on Philippians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
