Please click on the hymn linked below. My wonderful friend encouraged me with it's words in the midst of a strenuous foster care moment this past year and I hope it encourages you as well in whatever you might be going through.
The two pictures above were taken one year apart to the day - our first meeting last year and today, when he officially became ours.
I sit tonight overwhelmed with gratitude and in awe of God's love to give us such a gift as this boy, our third son.
There are so many thoughts and feelings but I'm keeping it short and sweet this month. Enjoy the rest of your October.
Be still, my soul: The Lord is on thy side;
With patience bear thy cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In ev'ry change he faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: Thy best, thy heav'nly Friend
Thru thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
Be Still My Soul, Katharina von Schlegel, b. 1697
