Just yesterday as the kids and I were getting ready for church Elizabeth was playing with an old (real) cell phone. She came to me and as she clicked it shut said, "Mommy, it was Jubilee. She said you need to come and pick her up." I got all teary-eyed and said, "Elizabeth, let's pray that you are prophetic!"
Today, while I was in the back doing laundry I heard Emma say, "Mom, your cell is ringing and the number is from an 859 area code." OH MY GRACIOUS ANSWER IT!!!
It was Rita from the agency. She said, "We have some good news!" I was crying before she could say anything more. Jesus, you are sooooo good to us!! After learning that, indeed, China has granted us Travel Approval to come get our sweet Jubilee I said through a boatload of tears, "Rita, you know how scripture says "Beautiful are the feet of him/her who brings good news?" She said she knew. I said, "Well Rita - I'm guessing that your feet are absolutely gorgeous!!"
Yippee Jesus!! Yippee Jesus!! Yippee Jesus!!
To God be The Glory Great Things He has Done!!!
"He sets the lonely in families...."
(Now the appointment just has to be secured at the US consulate
and then we can make travel arrangements. )
**Thank you to all of you who have prayed and prayed and prayed some more. God heard our prayers and our sweet baby girl will no longer long for a mommy and daddy of her own...she will be immersed in love to overflowing!! How we rejoice!!**
