After the unbelievably loving response that I got from Tuesday’s post, I have to start this post with a thank you to my readers! I can’t count the messages, comments, texts, and emails that I got from you guys, all sending prayers our way. It just goes to show that I wasn’t kidding about that Romans 12:15 stuff, you guys have that verse written on your hearts.
I thought that now would be a good time to let you guys know some more specific ways you can be praying for us during this next step of our adoption.
I’m so excited to finally share that we’ve been matched with a genetic family!
Now that the growing season is officially over here in Louisville, it’s time to look back on my garden adventures and figure out what I’ve learned this year.
If you follow me at all anywhere on social media, you probably noticed the barrage of Harry Potter World pics I posted last week. Steve & I got to go down to Orlando with his mom and sister, and it was crazy awesome.
This past Sunday, Cara organized a bake sale at our church here in Louisville to raise money for our adoption – isn’t she the sweetest? Tons of ladies spent their weekend baking up a storm to pull it off. Steve and I were so overwhelmed by all the baked goods!
We’ve finally completed our home study! We had all the paperwork done by the end of February, but it took a while for us to find time to fit in all the reading & online education stuff. But now we’re through, with an approved home study.
You might remember my limited success (i.e. compete failure) with gardening last year. That was partly due to my own laziness and partly to a severe lack of planning. It was essentially an afterthought one weekend in May.
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram or happened to catch my last post, you probably know that my Grandmother Dorothy (my dad’s mom) died earlier this month, on April 8th.
I remember my Grandmother as steady, kind, loving, spunky, and enduringly strong in her faith.
Hello, dear readers! Sorry I’ve been pretty MIA this month, but this spring has been a doozie. I’ve travelled a lot (you might have heard that my sweet Grandmother Dorothy passed away a few weeks ago), and I’ve been working hard on that list of goals for 2015.
I finally have my garden up and running, so you can expect a post on that soon, as well as some reviews of my favorite books I’ve read so far this year.
But for now – a kitchen makeover!
