"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

God reveals Himself....PRIMETIME!

There is something that has been growing in my heart for the past couple of weeks and I have been praying fervently about it. All I can say right now is that it relates to my children and my family, but don't fret, it's nothing bad.

Well, last night, while praying hard, my phone rang. It was Adam saying, "Mom! Hurry, turn on American Idol!" I was in the middle of praying, but he sounded so adamant about my watching that I said ok. When I turn on the TV set, the American Idol contestants were all singing "Shout To The Lord". I just about fell over.

As a lot of you know, that song is so very close to my heart. The first time I remember being drawn to Christ through that song was when I drove from Miami to Ft. Myers alone to be with my sister when we found out her baby had passed away.

From the time God moved my heart to adopt, I always relate that song to my babies and it has been the anthem at the Bombardier household every night for over two years now, since AJ and Kai came home. The kids love it and sweetly sing it after prayers each night.

Listening to it in the midst of asking God to give me answers last night was Him definitely saying, "Don't worry. I'm in control and I hear you."

Don't you love it when God just reaches out, takes you in, and holds you tightly in His arms like that? He is so good!

Thanks for always taking the time to share your heart. You are an encouragement to me, my friend!

I was reading something and it reminded me of our conversation at mom's the other night regarding your prayer.

Reflect on this:

"Your life's work is where the needs of the world and the joys of your heart intersect". what I mean is special need adoption is your joy and their needs are calling out from every corner of the globe. I will end this comment with this scripture reading from

Matthew 20:26 - "Whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant .... Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give His life a ransom for many".

May GOD reveal his will to you during this time of your discernment.

Love you much.....me.
