Aren't Pets Great?

After a long hard day, I come home and there are our two Russian Blues sitting on our bay window, hanging out checking out the scene. I walk up to the door and they notice me...I call their names...then they take off...I open the door and there they are...waiting for me to pet them. They do their usual belly-side-flop and do some kind of meow...and all is well in the world. :)
It is quite amazing how different my mood changed, even when just 5 minutes ago, I was almost ran over by a Cadillac on my way home.
They are just about 6 years old and we have had them about 3 months. We adopted them from a family locally and have enjoyed having them be a part of our family. Harlow is the one on the left and Lola is the one on the right. They are from the same litter and have never been split up. Lola is the playful one, while Harlow is the laid back one who probably thinks Lola is immature for wanting to play. They both love to snuggle with us and we believe they will be perfect when Lydia comes home to be with us. All I can say is that we are glad they are here with us.

The Lord's Provision

Good morning folks! I just want to stop and thank the Lord for His provision throughout this adoption process. We now have a remaining balance of $3,443.75! Amen and amen.

It is quite humbling after venting last night that I have tendancy to trust God in some areas and not others. Which is obvious through my thoughts and actions. I had a very candid talk with the Lord this morning and I am resolved not to worry or be anxious of when we will receive our referral. It is truly in His hands and He has been so faithful to us. I have no cause to doubt Him.

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." Philippians 4:6

Thanks for all your prayers and concerns for us. I am so grateful for the Body of Christ.

May the peace of Christ rule in your hearts today......
