Sooo that light at the end of the tunnel? Turns out it was a freight train. Followed by a bus. And a semi.
Boy and Girl are deep in the midst of a season of regression. Hello ugly tantrums, toileting issues, lying, beating the dog, breaking things, and constant defiance and disrespect. We cannot determine any rhyme or reason…except for the fact that we are likely 30 days away from finalizing the adoption. 30 days from saying “yes” forever to all the craziness and brokenness that they bring mixed in with their sweetness. 30 days from forever raising them in a home where we are seeking to follow the Lord.
I’m guessing Satan is not ok with these kids being plucked from a broken pit and placed in a family where they can be exposed to the redemptive grace of the gospel daily. Not that PJ and I are awesome representatives of God…because we’re not…but we’re willing to be used by Him, hopefully to see these kids redeemed.
I know that so many of you pray for us. Thank you. Will you consider praying for us in these specific ways?
- That no matter what the kids are doing, PJ and I would remember our calling to live a life worthy of the gospel and would respond in obedience to the Lord.
- That Boy’s and Girl’s hearts would quickly be growing tender and open to the call of Christ. And that the truth of our love for them and of God’s love for them will penetrate their hearts and minds…so that they don’t feel the need to push us away with their insanity.
- For protection of our family from spiritual attacks.
In other news…I’m in love with my borrowed steam cleaner. I plan to steam clean every surface in our house this week.
