I feel totally guilty for not blogging as much personal stuff lately, but then I HAVE to keep reminding myself what matters most!! Not that blogging isn’t very important and valuable… it is. It’s just that these last few months and weeks have a lot to cram into them in order to get these two babies home to us.
After having gone the agency domestic adoption route, the private domestic adoption route… I will say, that International Adoption is MUCH more difficult. It’s hard work. But I know that not adopting internationally would have meant me not listening to the heart of my husband or heading the voice of the Spirit. And over the years I have come to understand that Joy always follows obedience and that I can’t long for the life that I’ve always thought or wished I would have…. Because God wants something so much greater for my life than I could possibly imagine. Does that look like a life of comfort and ease and material possessions? Probably not. But I can only Trust that if my hope and joy is found in the gift of Salvation He’s graciously given me then what He will pour out on our lives will be infinitely greater than any thing or lifestyle could offer me.
“If we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desire not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, we are like ignorant children who want to continue making mud pies in a slum because we cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a vacation at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”
~ C.S. Lewis
But here are a few photos from a recent trip to Fuddruckers! They are so much fun to take out and have new experiences with. We are trying to enjoy as much stuff as possible that’s doable with two little ones but might not be as easy to do with four under 3. So, eating out is one of those things.
How many pieces do you wish?
