So, when we decided that we were going to go ahead and adopt, one of the first things out of Brad's mouth was, "You'd better not do the stupid blogging thing!" Well, sweet husband of mine, I've been asked, harassed (Angie), bugged and threatened. Okay, maybe not threatened, but I thought I'd better start blogging just in case it got to that point. :0)
Well, here it is. For anyone who cares to listen to the ranting and raving of a mother of three (someday more)...
Brad asked me the other day if I had thought about adoption AT ALL before the Adoption Awareness dinner (where God decided to blindside me with His desire for my life so hard I couldn't speak). I seriously tried to think back, and I could honestly say "No...Never". Isn't it funny how God works? I don't know about you, but I get tickled pink when something happens in my life, or around me, where there isn't any possible way I could chalk it up as "coincidence" or "look what I did". In those times I know God is there, I can feel His presence, His will, and it's exciting! Then the next step is obedience, which is scary, intimidating and...exciting! But when we obey God...the coolest thing happens...He seems to ask MORE! Well, maybe He's always been asking more, but now I'm listening! And He's showed me that my fears are just that, MY fears. I can just picture Him up in heaven, shaking His head like we do when our babies won't just TAKE THAT FIRST STEP ALREADY!! He's saying, "Why are you so afraid child, don't you believe that I can take care of you? Now snap out of yourself and TRUST ME!" Of course this is all speculation, but since this is my speculation, I'm going to add a smack in the butt to go with it!
Now that I'm done "speculating", I'm going to bid you farewell for now!
Don't be fooled by the name of the blog, or the title of this post. Brad knows full well what's going on and he's staying away. BWAHAHAHAHA!!!
