A TERRIFIC TOMORROW...

**As we are getting close to the 3 yr mark of this adoption process...I have been reminded of how hard we planned out EVERY detail of it. We just "knew" things would fall according to our plans. **BIG LAUGH HERE** As many have said...we plan and God laughs! If you had asked me 3 years ago if we would still be waiting for Little Guy to arrive I would have said of course not! BUT...here we are...now we are so very close to him now and we are so excited about that. As I was reading through my devotions I found this one to share.

"For I know the plans I have for you"- [this is] the Lord's declaration-"plans for [your] welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and hope." Jeremiah 29:11

How bright do you believe your future to be? Well, if you're a faithful believer, God has plans for you that are so bright that you'd better pack several pairs of sunglasses and a lifetime supply of sunblock!
The way that you think about your future will play a powerful role in determining how things turn out (it's called the "self-fulfilling prophecy," and it applies to everybody, including you). So here's another question: Are you expecting a terrific tomorrow, or are you dreading a terrible one? The answer to that question will have a powerful impact on the way tomorrow unfolds.
Today, as you live in the present and look to the future, remember that God has an amazing plan for you. Act-and believe-accordingly. And one more thing: don't forget the sunblock!

Do not limit the limitless God! With Him, face the future unafraid because you are never alone.
Mrs. Charles E Cowman

I know that if our plans had played out 3 yrs ago then we would not be here now looking to the future with this adorable baby boy. I know God has great plans for this little guy and I am so thankful He chose us to parent him. SO...here's to a terrific tomorrow!!

Have a blessed night,
Tina
**Dear Lord, sometimes when I think about the future, I worry. Today, I will do a better job of trusting You. You are my Father, and I will place my hope and my faith in You. Amen

It has been just over 3 years since we started the adoption process also.
