I Guess We Made the Right Decision!

If you believe that the devil is out there, and hates it when Christians are serving God and on the right path, then you'll understand what I'm talking about here. Since we've turned in our application, Richard's truck has been in the shop TWICE. Mine has been in the shop once. We were hit with a HUGE tax bill, and to top it all off, when I was leaving school yesterday, I hit another teacher's car!!!!! It wasn't too bad, just scratched the bumper (a BIG scratch). She was very sweet, and is actually one of my favorite people in the world. That makes it better and worse. Still, it's money that has to be spent on something other than China. My only consolation is that the blessing must be really big if the devil is fighting this hard!!

I agree 100%. Total confirmation you are doing the right thing. It is crazy how Satan attacks when you are on the right path and doing what the Lord intends for your life. Chin up and know you are doing the right thing. Now, on with that referral-- I want to see your little girl!!!!

Oh my gosh! When I saw the post Headline, I thought you had gotten your referral!!!! I love your attitude here! The day before we left for China to pick up Ruby, I got in a car accident in the parking lot where I go to BSF! So, I completely understand where you are coming from her!

Can't wait to see who God has waiting for you!

Blessings,
Diana

Jennifer,

Our sermon today was on this vert thing...the priest told us that we are most Christian when we embrace our suffering to see what plans God has for us. It is all HIS plan. Blessings. I too thought maybe you had a referral already!

Felicia said...

You do have an awesome attitude. I pray that things smooth out and you are right...your little China blessing will be amazing!

You go girl! So happy you're now in a new line b/c the other one seems so hopeless at times....I'm almost convinced that CCAA is planning to close their IA program sometime down the road. Afterall, it pretty much is now. SO frustrating! But, I'll be prayin' things so smoothly and quickly. I know from my own 30+ month wait how hard it can be. I can't wait to follow the developments. Keep your great attitude about all the pebbles in your shoes....I'm convinced they are sometimes annointed! :)
