A gift from the Giver

"How precious to me are your thoughts God! How vast is the sum of them!"
Psalm 139:17
I was blessed beyond measure this morning. I awoke with my precious Maggie on my mind, which is not necessarily unusual. What was unusual was the specific conversation I had with my God. I asked Him if He was thinking of her as I was.

Our paperwork has been beyond SLOW! If you know anything about the process, we just submitted our homestudy this week. It has taken us about 3 months longer to complete the homestudy than normal time frame, but in the adoption process what is normal!

Years ago the Lord taught me that He is a God who remembers, and when He remembers, he acts. This morning He showed me those thoughts He thinks toward us...When I lifted my eyes from my prayer the sky was completely pink! So beautiful...only a sky that a true girl could appreciate. As the glow of the pink sky flooded into the house I praised Him for showing me once again that He is remembering and acting, even when I feel like nothing is moving. As I walked to my desk to grab my camera and capture the moment, I saw an email that said, "HUGE SURPRISE (pictures of Guan Qing)"
I have nothing else to say...
