Garden of Daily Living

Plant three rows of peas:
1. Peace of Mind
2. Peace of Heart
3. Peace of Soul

Plant four rows of squash:
1. Squash gossip
2. Squash indifference
3. Squash grumbling
4. Squash selfishness

Plant four rows of lettuce:
1. Lettuce be faithful
2. Lettuce be kind
3. Lettuce be patient
4. Lettuce really love one another

No garden is without turnips:
1. Turnip for meetings
2. Turnips for service
3. Turnip to help one another

To conclude our garden must have thyme:
1. Thyme for each other
2. Thyme for family
3. Thyme for friends

Water freely with patience and cultivate with love. There is much fruit in your garden because you reap what you sow.

What have you sown today??

New Job

Well after 2 year and 2 months of driving 25 miles one way to work, it all came to an end on July 11. I accepted a job with the local school system and my drive is a mere 5 miles. I started my job yesterday and while I am working 30 minutes less I was exhausted yesterday. I am doing different work, it's not more work, so I guess the exhaustion is from mental exhaustion. Today was a little better but still tired.

Well it has been 28 long months since our paperwork was officially logged in. This does not include the 1 year of gathering paperwork to have our dossier in complete order for our agency. With the looming thought that it could very well be another year before we see our sweet Darci's face I am holding out hope that we may have a wonderful Christmas gift. All in all I have said it a million times and will probably say it a million more times before we have Darci home, and that is, this JOURNEY is in God's hands. He placed us on this journey and when the perfect time comes, we will go get her. Although there were many times I would have like to have gone and been back, that was not part of God's plan. His Word clearly states that His timing is not our timing. The excitment of the wait has long passed and redoing this or that has lost its excitment. When we had to be fingerprinted again and re-apply for our I-171 there was no joy, it was just one more thing to do. No waiting in anticipation of that I-171 like we did the first go round. That light at the end of the tunnel was so small one could barely see it. However, it now seems that light is slowly getting bigger. I draw my strength from the Lord who placed me on this journey and reminds me this is ALL in HIS HANDS. So you see Darci, mommy and daddy are waiting patiently to come and get you. We love you with all of our hearts and cannot wait until we see your face for the first time. You are a member of this family, we talk about you often, we dream of the day we will be united as a family. Your heavenly father is watching out for you and He is keeping you protected until that time. So please know this, as we long to hold you, long to see your beautiful eyes, ears, lips and nose, we know that your mother longs to see those beautiful eyes, ears, lips and nose just one more time. She has made the most precious sacrifice a mother can make. As a Christian I compare it to the most precious gift our heavenly father gave. He gave us His son. Your mother gave us a daughter. Know that we will always love you like we love A & K. We will never leave you. WE LOVE YOU DARCI!!! Still waiting and will continue to wait until we are FOREVER UNITED!!!

Going to the zoo with FREINDS

I did this post and saved it as a darft back on May 4. Guess it has been some time since I last visited my dashboard. SORRY!! Some friends of mine homeschool and so they took a field trip to the zoo and I tagged along. This was my first visit to this zoo and it was quite fun!! A used to live in St. Louis and the zoo there is fantastic and is FREE. She just can't get over the fact that you have to pay to go to the zoo. Oh well!! It was an enjoyable day and I cannot wait to take Darci and spend time showing her all of God's creation and just having fun at the zoo.
