Love is a beautiful thing...

God is love. God commands us to love one another. Why are we adopting? To love, we are trying to obey what God has laid out for our family.

When I talk to different people about our adoption journey they are always so kind and tend to want to compliment us for "doing this." Trust me, everyone's positive comments are welcome and needed at times but I do want to say one thing about this....

we are not trying to SAVE a child - but maybe we will
we are not trying to draw attention to what we are DOING - but hopefully more people who meet us will consider adoption

we are simply trying to obey - TO LOVE.

In regards to the adoption we are so close and yet very far also. I now have everything needed for the dossier to go except that one sheet of paper from USCIS - please pray our file will float to the top! Once I get that form I will have everything off to America World asap. I look forward to being on the list. I can't believe I am so excited about getting on a list to wait again but I am.

While I am waiting I am thinking a lot. I am designing a t-shirt, a logo and having fun with my blog. My first t-shirt design which may or may not ever happen would have the following block of copy on the back ................


Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:7-8
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us. 1 John 4:11-12
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. Matthew 22:36-38
16"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
"If you love me, you will obey what I command. John 14:15
16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16
