I am on the edge of my seat. :o)
Whether checking my email first thing in the morning or when the phone rings before noon - I am inwardly leaning towards getting the NEWS that we have been assigned a court date.
Court cases were not being assigned for awhile and now they are moving again. Last week 9 families were assigned court case... Get this. They were notified on a Monday to be in Ethiopia the following Monday. CRAZY - but very exciting. I read one of the families' Blogs this morning. Amazing and Delightful! Since they passed court and the kiddos are officially their children now, she even posted photos.
I tell myself that my HOPE is in CHRIST.... and He alone is my portion and to wait patiently.
I so eagerly want to look into their eyes, touch and smell them and tell them that I love them. Wow... I don't feel very spiritual but very much human... wanting and waiting. I am thankful that the Lord knows me and is with me always. He has shared in the wanting and waiting and still does for His children to come to HIM. Ephesians 1:5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will,...
Romans 8:19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
The expectation is that we could hear any day now about a court date which could be assigned for after the rainy season. (Remember, Ethiopia shuts down the court system sometime in Aug. - Sept.)
Leaning on Him as I wait and want.
