Referral!!!


You, O' Lord are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Psalm 86:13


Have you ever had a moment in your life where you really want to capture in words the bigness of the moment and then the words are washed away?  How do you fall in love so completely and so quickly?  All I could  think about was this scripture.  Wow.  We got our  referral last night.  She is perfect.  She is almost 2 1/2y.  She is a little peanut.  Quiet and shy.  We don't need to call her Little M anymore for Little Morgan.  She has a name.  A beautiful name.  So until we are allowed to call her by her name... she is B.  Do you mind adding us to your prayers?  We would like to get her home and snuggled within her new family.

For some lightness...our referral story.  I have been attached to my cell phone.  In class, I keep it on vibrate.  In meetings, it is on my desk (so rude, but oh well).  It is on me at all moments because I was not going to miss that call.  Yesterday, bible study to working out with a trainer (I heard that we need endurance) to orthodontist appt for Eliza.  I got home and was making a nice dinner for the kids and me because Jason was having a quick dinner with his two good friends.  Jason calls and says, "I just had an interesting conversation...."  My mind begins to race...."did my husband have an argument with someone?"  He continues, "with Jessica."  So, he takes his friend's car and is home to get the call and the email.  Yes, my phone was out of battery and I did not get the call.  He was so good and would not let Jessica tell him anything (not that she would have.)  So that nice dinner... never got eaten.  Actually, I have not slept or eaten much since that amazing call.  I loved my OB's when I was pregnant and now I love Jessica.

I know none of this probably makes any sense.  Thank God that I don't need to take an A&P test because that A would nose dive in a day.  We are just beyond excited.
