After a wonderful weekend in Branson with good teaching and time with the S's, we're home working to get back in the swing! We met the S's way back in our Young Married's class at church when we were first married. But they'd moved and we'd gone on with our lives. It was probably last summer that we saw them at church in Branson and found out they'd moved to that area, God had blessed them with a wonderful house and they invited us to stay with them sometime. We finally took them up on it last time we went and had such a great time! Their 3 youngest are very close to our kids' age and they all had a fun time together. So, when we talked about coming this time, for a longer stay, our kids were thrilled! They adopted domestically a few years back and it was nice to talk to their daughter and get her perspective. She was older when they adopted her and had been through foster care. I'm thankful for that time of sharing and can see how God worked during their waiting time.
While we were there, we were reminded of the greatness of God's love for us. Because of that love, we're going to make it! We also read Isaiah 60:4- Look and see, for everyone is coming home! Your sons are coming from distant lands; your little daughters will be carried home. Woo Hoo!!! Time to get excited again and expect to see God's hand on this process.
I don't know where our camera is, which is sad. Not only have I not posted pictures in a while, I haven't taken any! Sad, sad. Perhaps it's time to go find a new one, which we needed anyway.

I'm not sure why I'm just now reading this. That is a great scripture, Delahne. I love how God brings scriptures across our path to encourage us, even scriptures we have never heard or read before! So did you get a new camera?
