It happened! It actually happened! Every once in a while you think, well, maybe it might. Just maybe. And then you think oh no, what if it does? What if it does happen? Maybe I should delete it. Maybe I should stop now. No, it's my choice, it's me, it's part of my ministry. It's part of my life and part of who I am and I want to use it to glorify God. In all ways I want it to glorify Him. And I want to be able to share what He has done. For He has done great things! I want to be able to show that children, hurting children, are adoptable and although it may not be the "normal life" that was previously hoped for, it's the life He wants for me and it is being used to shape me, mold us, and to once again totally glorify Him. It becomes an amazing journey, one hoped for and desired. That desire becomes so strong that you don't want to stop, you want to adopt more, for His glory, and you want to tell everyone about it and how good it can be. So I keep writing and I think, maybe it will happen. And then it does. You are worshipping at a new place and someone looks at you like they know you. You rack your brain as to whether or not you should know that person, they sure seem nice. Then, they come up to you eager to introduce themselves and smiling, announce they read your blog! Then you are grateful. Amazed. Humbled. You are glad you keep writing. You get a renewed sense of purpose and hope for great things to write about in the future. And you hope for a few minutes here and there to actually say the things on your heart. So, to my new friend Brandi--Thanks for reading and thanks for extending your friendship! I look forward to getting to know you more. And to the rest of you out there (because now I just know there are thousands;) I look forward to meeting you one day should the Lord provide the opportunity.
