A reason to hope...maybe

One of the websites I try to stay away from, but am drawn to like a magnet is called "China Ad0pt talk." The Rum0r Queen posts - as you would guess- the lastest news and rumors related to China adoption. This week, I must confess, my heart skipped a beat as I read this post: http://chinaadopttalk.com/2008/12/05/repeat-rumors/ . Hopefully the history she shared will keep me from getting my hopes up...but a girl can dream. And more importantly, God can move...and I trust that He is at work in my adoption plan and it matters not who goes where or what the world does, His timing is perfect in every way! That's not to say that there aren't times when I want to scream and shout at Him because my heart aches and my arms long to hold her, but this is what I keep telling myself...

"Do not be anxious about anything,
but in EVERYTHING,
with prayer and petition,
and with THANKSGIVING,
present your request to God
and the PEACE of God
which trancends all understanding
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Phil. 4:6-7
Precious Lord, Hear my prayer...

Thanks Angie, I usually read RQ, but did not see that post. Let's hope for a speed-up.

God's time and our time...not always the same. Hardly ever the same. He does not wear a timex. My friend adopted 3 children from China. You will be blessed, I am sure.
