The Small Mountains

I am going to ask for God to move the smallest mountains first instead of looking at the BIG one ahead. Sometimes I think we get so wrapped up in the end results that we don't see the littlest blessings happening right in front of us. "Our God is so big, so strong and so mighty, there's nothing our God cannot do." That is a line from one of the songs Kainen sings as church. Isn't it true? These are just small mountains to God. There is nothing he cannot do!!

I don't have much to share about the adoption. We did find out that the judge who has our case asked PGN to write up a report about our case and their concerns with it. What in the world for? I don't know. But, I am now praying that PGN gets this report done quickly and back to the judge so he can make a ruling. They can be very slow at things. I am a bit emotional today. Could be the holidays coming up and the fact that she will not be home for Christmas. I am thankful for many things in my life though, and I am focusing on those right now. How blessed we should be for simply waking up each morning, for being able to have something as simple as dinner on the table. I know where I am going to sleep tonight and so many out there do not. I know who my Lord is and so many do not. I pray tonight that someone comes into there lives and touches them with God's word and they learn to know the Lord. I have been witnessing to people with our blog and adoption journey and didn't even realize it. We have had people tell us how others reading our blog have been questioning their faith, and seeing him working in our lives has made them a believer. WOW! How humbling! I was witnessing to others and didn't even realize it. I am a bit ashamed, though I know this adoption journey was part of God's plan for us and to others we are reaching out to. So while I do not know how long this journey will take I will continue to pray that God move these small mountains in our journey and hope to bring more believers to Jesus Christ along the way.

Your words are so true! You never even know when you are witnessing to others. We'll keep right on praying for Kinsey to be home and your family to be complete until you post that first at-home picture!

Hi guys. This is from the Giglio family. We think of your family often. I have been looking peirodically on your website for updates. I have been hoping for you that Mckinsey comes home. Every time I look I keep thinking this is the month. She is just beautiful. Michael still talks about Kainen and the sunday school you took him too. He asks on Sundays why Michigan doesn't have that church. Well, news on our front...we found out today that we are having a baby girl. She is due April 1. We lost your phone number. I would love to recieve a phone call from you guys. 812 236-2994

You are so blessed. You have a wonderful family, biological, friends and Christian. We sometimes only need to let our little light shine for God to use us. Most of the time, we will probably never know when He uses us, but is so special when He lets us know. May your light shine on and we will pray for your family to be united on our home soil soon.
Love you.

We have been in a rut this week- I think the holidays coming up make this so frustrating! Still no news on our end!
