Thank you?....................







We are not supposed to post pictures of our baby, however, it looks like a doll, and no one can recognize her in this picture, so I thought it would be okay! I just wanted to show how tiny she was, when I last held her in my arms!! She is 11 months old today, and while she is still tiny, she has grown and changed so much! We received her DVD from last month, yesterday. I was so excited! She was sitting up and does this weird little army crawl/scoot, it is so cute! We also caught a glimpse of her 2 little teeth! It is so time for me to hold her again! Please continue to pray that we will get her new birth certificate before we even get on the plane on the 28th! That would be a miracle, as they have been about 2 to 3 weeks behind in getting them out(past the 30 business days!) Either way, I am getting on that plane, I would just love to KNOW for a fact that I don't have to leave her again!!




Now, on to the title of today's post...



I have a verse that I love, so much so, that it is on the living room wall in our home, it is 1 Thes. 5:16-18, and it says this, "Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in ALL circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."(emphasis mine) I guess I do not love that verse so much, but that I NEED it to remind me to give thanks in all circumstances!! We seem to have had a few circumstances lately that, quite frankly I am not all that thankful for!! But daily, I do need to say "Thank you" and I found a song that I LOVE and I try to either sing it every morning or listen to it at some point, and it is a great reminder. For those days like, this past week Wed., when I was driving the van, and heard a loud noise, and got home and saw reddish fluid gushing out from under the van! I told Ryan, and he went out and checked it out, he come back in and said, "Well, I got it to the service center, but, I think the transmission is shot!" Huh? (thankfully the service center is at the bottom of our driveway,) but wow, that is a huge expense!! "Thank You" was not my first response! So I am learning, and not there yet! I will try to upload the song later, it hasn't worked the last 5 times I tried, so maybe next time!

First of all, your song works!!! Second, your right, Anaya does look like a doll. I cant believe how small she was. Not sure who is cuter, Anaya or you? :) Thirdly, cant wait to hear how the Lord provides for the car. And lastly, thrilled for you that your time in Guat is almost here. Even though we live only 45 min apart, I think it will be in Guat before we meet. Believing with you for that BC today! Susie
