MLK, Jr Day

MLK is an inspiration to me, a great teacher, fearless lover of God, prophet and powerful sharer of Truth. His quotes just bring so much emotion and motivation to the table.

I wish he was here to see his sweet Dream come to life but let it be an encouragement not to lose sight on what God is calling us to do. Don't lose hope in fighting and running the good race. Keeping perusing justice. Knowing that we may not see it happening on this side of Heaven but  also knowing that not obey is not an option. 1 Tim 6:12-19

"Not only will we have to repent for the sins of bad people; but we also will have to repent for the appalling silence of good people." Martin Luther King Jr.

"The day we see the truth and cease to speak is the day we begin to die" 
Martin Luther King Jr.
"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way."  Martin Luther King Jr.

"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity." Martin Luther King Jr.

"True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring. "
Martin Luther King Jr.

Adoption Update

We have eagerly been waiting since our return form Ethiopia in Nov. for the US Embassy Date there to 1) approve our paperwork 2) assign us date to come pick up the child with us visa.

We were really hoping for either of the last 2 available dates, but they have come and gone. The US Embassy seems to be getting more and more picky with paperwork, etc. We are hoping for the next date which would be 2/2. But two additional weeks of waiting seems like forever!

We are lucky to live in a time of technology like we have today, were we get updates on Him, that hes gorwing normally, He's walking...and saying some words, that he is social and likes blocks, etc. But I am ready to see it daily! Ready to see him growing and playing with Sadie and it all happening at our house! Through this, God is really teaching me HIS timing.......its hard but I like it.

In the mean time we were able to get him a French Visa to enter France until we leave!! That was a huge headahe and answer to prayer!!

Book Swap

I wish I was near a nice big {English} recently I have really enjoyed reading but sometimes its expensive to buy books online {even on the cheap websites}. I am no sure if this will work but....I was wondering if anyone wants to do some book swaping? If it is no more the around $3 to ship to and from where ever you are, then it should work!

I have a good reads account, that I just easily add any books that I come across that I want to read. Do you have one? Maybe we can be friends on there and do some book swapping that way. 

Here are some books that I would like, let me know if you have any of them:

Any of the Geoff & Janet Benge Biographies
Sheparding a Child's Heart or Don't Make me Count to 3
#2 & #3 of the Mark of the Lion Series
Anything Amy Carmicheal or Elizabeth Elliot
Anything Shane Claiborn
And Anything John Chrysostom

Grace is our only Hope

Augustine: For grace is given not because we have done good works, but in order that we may be able to do them.
