This year, I had the pleasure of speaking a few times to different groups of moms in various churches. I love speaking, and encouraging women through God's word, but at one particular group last year something that was said made me so much more thankful for this Godly man who boldly follows the Lord into the unknown of adoption. One momma came up to me after and said..How in the world do you get your husband to agree to all of this? Honestly, I don't, but the Lord does. I couldn't be more thankful for this incredible husband, and father who is constantly calling me into a room of our home to look at how adorable our children are in whatever moment he spots them. Seriously, he is crazy for our girls. He and Jilly spend a good part of every day together at the park, and all of my girls love, love their daddy. You see, God designed us to be loved and cared for by an Earthly father so that we might be pointed to the great love our Heavenly Father has for us. This man of mine is not perfect, but he is such a blessing. A wonderful, loving father, a servant, a softie, and, most importantly, a man of God. Because of this, it is no surprise that when I began to feel like it was time to add another little one to our home, he was on board. I can't wait to tell you all about her! Preapproval is only about a week away so hold on tight as I can share her details soon. If you can't wait a week, come to service this morning as I think Daddy might sneak her picture into the slide show during his sermon this morning. So beyond grateful here that God would allow us the privilege to love just one more precious girl in His name.
