Wonderful Wednesday

Well, my goal for this week is to blog more than just on Wednesday.

This past weekend we headed out of town to visit hubby's brother and sister-in-law in Atlanta. We had a fabulously long weekend just hanging out with them and their family. We went tubing down a river, we ate ribs, and we played baseball. We had good times.

I am amazed by them. They do not know this but I talk about them all the time in Bible class and how their faith amazes me. By the end of this year, they will have gone from a childless, fairly fresh-out-of-college couple to having three children. They spent the latter months of 2008 preparing to become foster parents and in January of this year two of the sweetest boys were placed in their home. Then, in April they found out they were expecting their first child. They are amazing parents and I admire them so much for how they are allowing God to work through them.

Today is a BIG day in their world. The future of those two sweet boys will be determined which will in turn determine the future of brother and sister-in-law. A very BIG day indeed.

I cannot help but be reminded of having faith like a child when I think of them. They are following their father's will wherever it leads them....and I believe they will move mountains.

"He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: 'I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a child like this on my name welcomes me." - Matthew 18:2-5

I hope their Wednesday is Wonderful!
