Second, my apologies on posting the winners late. The last few days have been hectic at our house. God led us to minister to the youth of downtown Knoxville a couple of years ago and in the process has brought some awesome children into our lives. They are such a blessing to me. Anyways, about 8 months ago our Lord brought Raymond and John into our home. They have spent most weekends since then and spring break, etc. in our home. Well, Raymond will be 18 on this Friday. Since he is an ADULT legally, but not truly, he is moving to Nashville to live with his grandmother. We had a farewell party/birthday party last night and it was incredible. So, the last few days have been spent enjoying him and getting ready for his big night. And oh how he was surprised! He had never been celebrated quite like that! Some of you may be thinking, what's the big deal? Well, this young man has been through things I can only imagine and survived them. He has poured his heart out to us and honestly, he is like one of our sons. So, it was bittersweet to see him off this morning. He will be living 3 hours away and I pray he will make good choices, that He will choose Jesus instead of the world. If you think about it, please pray for him. An awesome young man with a kind heart!
Lastly, we have no news to share about our adoption. We are still waiting, but finding peace in it all. God's timing is perfect and I only want it His way. Not my way, ever. In the meantime, we are staying busy with decluttering and dejunking our house. I have realized the last few weeks that this is my time to completely organize my house before our kiddos come home. Keep praying for our court date. It has to be coming up soon. :)
