We just heard via email that we will most likely not be hearing about our court date today. And since tomorrow is a holiday and then the weekend we figure it will be Monday before we hear anything. Does this surprise me? Not really. We have had a journey like this all along and that is ok. A very sweet person reminded me of what today is really about and I am feeling ok. It will be a tough few days of not knowing but in the grand scheme of will be nothing!
A devotion I found:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phillipians 4:6-7
What does it mean to "cast your care on God"? Start by opening your heart and telling Him about your fears, your worries, those things that make you feel anxious. Once you've done that , thank Him for taking all that worry off your hands. As you give up your anxious thoughts to Him. He gives you something back---His perfect peace.

SO...May you all have a very Merry Christmas. May feel God's perfect peace this season and have many wonderful blessings in the New Year!

Have a blessed Christmas Eve,

I WANT TO SEE THE PICTURE.. Ok so this is selfish.. but I have prayed... waited.. not the same as you. Ok a few more days. Perhaps your agency will have understanding and email you tomorrow. If not thank you for your everlasting wonderful attitude. What a wonderful testimony you choose to be for all of us.
Merry Christmas. Enjoy your party tomorrow. So Glad that the birth of Christ has come to detour you this week.
Waiting for Monday right along side you... well you know what I mean..
