we leave for ethiopia in TWO DAYS!!!!
we are meeting evie in FIVE DAYS!!!!
she will, God-willing, be legally ours in SIX DAYS!!!!
get ready for pictures of her sweet face after that!!!!
as you can tell, i've been doing a lot of packing this week. i am working tomorrow and so today is pretty much my last day to get all of the major packing done. i am nervous and excited and anxious and just ready to go. one whole suitcase is full of donations for evie's orphanage. we'll use this suitcase to fill with souvenirs on the way back.
i've been very emotional this week. satan has tried every trick in the book to scare me away. i know he doesn't want this adoption to happen. he has planted doubts and fears in my mind all week long. spiritual warfare is so real when you are following God. it has been a hard week but did i expect any less? why wouldn't the devil fight to keep an orphan all alone and without hope? i have had to rebuke him constantly all week long and press into the peace of God. it has been a battle.
i probably won't be updating the blog again until we get back from our trip. if we have decent internet access i will try to at least post a picture of her if we pass court. we would love prayers. prayer requests: safe travel, good health, restful sleep, PEACE, evie's heart, great visits with her, our hearts as we leave her and judah's heart as he is away from us this week.
we can't wait to meet our girl....HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
