To say that today was an awesome day is a complete understatement. There is a feeling of being overcome with the goodness of God and knowing that your expectations are nothing in comparison to HIS blessings! It leaves you speechless in tears and standing in awe.
Today we had the privilege and honor to be a part of our Arts for Adoption event at our church. So much thought, hard work, love and prayer went into the planning of this day and God completely honored every effort that was made. Guests had the opportunity to support our orphan’s ministry in many ways, whether it was our food, bake sale, vendors selling items, raffle baskets, silent auction items or pampering donations people were active and involved. We also offered information about adoption and foster care and had three agencies on hand to answer questions and talk with interested families.
On several occasions we witnessed the provision of God today. We were blessed by so many different things and amazed how it all worked out in the end. Our biggest blessing of provision came from our agency today. While they may not know it, we are honored to be a part of the agency and truly believe that God has chosen them for us. As we concluded the day, we were talking to our representative from the agency and the supervisor. You see, we had to miss our last class that would was held today because of this prior commitment. They recognized that the Arts for Adoption event was to honor the children, promote awareness, and help families in need. Because we were participating in the event, we were offered the classes to complete our training time in a way that will allow us to not slow the process of getting approved/certified down. With the exception of one clearance form and the completion of our medical forms (which will be completed by weeks end) we are ready to proceed.
When this was offered we stood in awe of a mighty God once again. We knew at that moment that His provision is part of His perfect plan and that He certainly has called us into this season in our lives. That He has replaced our broken hearts with abundant joy! When asked about my favorite part of this journey… I could list many things, but the greatest most wonderful thing has been, knowing that we are in the will of God!
