Enter adoption journey. That has changed. In the last several weeks, I have come to dread Mondays. Why? Because Mondays begin the "Will we get the call today?" mindset. I could literally feel myself unwinding Friday afternoon about 4:45 when I realized the call would not be coming last week. I slept better Friday night than I had all week, knowing I had 48 hours of "no call" time. I rolled over at 5:15 this morning and my mind was immediately flooded with that anxiety I had been relieved of all weekend. I am happy to say I was able to pray through it and actually fall back to sleep. I'm making progress!
But even in my Monday phobia, God is good. It's only 9:27 and I've already been overwhelmed with his goodness this morning. Here are just a few of the ways he's made me smile this morning.
- Once again, he lead me to a passage of scripture that showed me he is all over my world right now. He encouraged me again that he is fighting my battles. My Bible study lead me to the story of David and Goliath. I have to confess that right now this adoption feels like a Goliath in my life. But I was reminded once again that no giant will ever be a match for a big God with a little rock!
- We decided to have hot cocoa with our breakfast this morning. This is a big treat for my kids. Lily made me dig to the back of the mug cupboard to find the mug that had the sunshine on it. I wasn't sure which one she was referring to, but when I pulled it out I smiled to see the quotation on the side, "This is the day that the Lord hath made." Even if it is Monday.
- I opened my email this morning to a precious gift and a sweet reminder of all that God has given me. We have a dear old friend who came to dinner Saturday night and she insisted on bringing her camera with her. She sent me this link- check it out! www.poiemaphotography.com/campbellkids/
Here's to a great Monday morning!
