And the greatest of these is LOVE!

I am weighed down by negativity with the adoption of the girls today. People I care about , strangers, it seems like today is the day to attack me about it. It gets to me. I wish it didn't, but it does. I start to think "Am I crazy?"...

But then I cease looking at the things of this world, and instead look at the heart of my Heavenly Father. I look at the pictures of my girls. I look at the truly AWESOME WONDERS OF GOD, ALL THAT HE HAS CREATED, ALL THAT HE HAS PROMISED, ALL THAT HE COMMANDS OF US.... And my JOY is revived once again!

Praise the Lord. He is good, all that time! A quote our pastor has referenced which I love is:

"Either HE is Lord of ALL, or He isnt' Lord at all!"

You can't have it both ways! Is He Lord of all in your life?


  1. Oh friend, I am so sorry you have been bombarded with negativity! You KNOW you are doing the Father's will! Everyone just loves to have an opinion--and to voice it. Let them bounce off you and not penetrate! Water off a ducks back, hey?

    Keep on keeping on--you are right at the center of His will--what could be sweeter???

  2. Hey Kelly-I am sorry that people are being so negative. "If God is for us, who can be against us." Romans 8:31 Just having come back from Bulgaria I want to encourage you to not give up, ignore any negative comments, and walk on with God. You won't be sorry! blessings, Mary Ellen Keno

  3. Thank you both for your encouraging words!!! I love knowing people that have been through it, or are going through it! I know they understand! It really is the best kind of encouragement!

    Thanks again!

  4. YES!!!!! He is Lord and in control of this adoption from start to finish! He is faithful even when we are not- this amazing journey has blessed us so very much!

  5. Hi I am sorry to hear that.I will pray for you.Alot of times we dont know what God have planed for us...Rememder God is with you forever and ever....He is amasing and he is faitful...Matthew 15:28
    Then Jesus replied to her," Woman,your faith is great.Let it be done for you as you want, and from that moment her daughter was cured.......... I will pray for you Joseph.........
