When I first came to you, dear brothers and sisters, I didn’t use lofty words and impressive wisdom to tell you God’s secret plan. For I decided that while I was with you I would forget everything except Jesus Christ, the one who was crucified. I came to you in weakness—timid and trembling. And my message and my preaching were very plain. Rather than using clever and persuasive speeches, I relied only on the power of the Holy Spirit. I did this so you would trust not in human wisdom but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:1-5
I am a wife and mother…but above all else, I am a follower of Christ. When this blog first started, I was searching desperately for Him and what my calling was. What was my purpose on this earth? I dug deeper and deeper into the Bible and made some major changes in my relationship with Christ…mainly, getting off of the spiritual couch and taking an active role in the relationship. I wanted to hear Him and I wanted to experience Him. I sit every day and read my Bible and spend time in communication with Him.
And in my desperate search, I found Him.
I realized that He has used me in many different capacities throughout my life. But, for this season of my life, He has called my husband and I to foster children. If that leads to adoption, all the better. But for right now, we are foster parents to 3 young siblings. Christ told us to go…and we went. Christ told us to love…so we love. We are creating warriors.
But, I warn you now, not all blogs are going to make sense. My mind races a million miles a minute, and yet doesn’t move at all. So some will just be thoughts on a page to come back to later and evaluate and mull over. This is the mystery of me.
I am very happily married to my partner-in-crime for 20 years:
And together, we created our 3 eggs: Egg #1
And the Princess Egg, #3
And God blessed us incredibly with our sibling group of 3 through foster care. We happily adopted all 3 March 1, 2013!
“Lizzie” (she picked her own new name)
“Batman” (we let him pick his name too…we didn’t use his choice. LOL)
And the youngest, “Baby Boy”
