"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

“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

Thought Provoking Tag!

I was tagged by Holly at Purpose Driven Family. I thought this "tag" was different and I really enjoyed it. Thank, Holly!

I am: addicted to adoption blogs.

I think: God gives us miracles every single day, we just have to open our eyes to them!

I know: that Jesus Christ is my Savior and my redeemer.

I want: to hear my children say someday that I did a good job raising them.

I hate: seeing injustice, suffering children, oppression and poverty world-wide.

I miss: my oldest son being around daily and I miss my grandparents.

I fear: cockroaches! YIKES!!!!!!!!!!

I feel: blessed with everything I have and the possibility of yet another blessing on its way.

I hear: God’s whispers, but only when I am truly still and listening.

I smell: gardenias when I walk out my front door. Mmm….

I crave: going away alone with Scott.

I search: for God’s will in almost everything I do.

I regret: the times I’ve had the opportunity to reach out to others, but because of selfishness, I haven’t.

I love: my Lord and Savior, first and foremost, and then my family with an intense passion.

I ache: to hold and care for a child that has never been shown the love of a mother.

I care: for orphans worldwide.

I always: begin my morning thanking God for being in my life, for another day and asking Him to allow me to bring honor and glory to Him in everything that I do that day.

I am not: good at math!

I believe: that we WILL add another child to our family and I stand STRONG on that

I sing: with my kids all the time.

I cry: when I think about the conditions that Kai lived in before bringing him home.
(We are blessed that Anna Grace came from a very good orphanage and a foster family that showed her a lot of love.)

I fight: to resist Satan’s snares almost daily.

I win: when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior.

I lose: every time I try to take situations into my own hands.

I never: want to imagine living life without my husband or my children.

I listen: to worship music and to my friends when they encourage me through scripture and wise words.

I can usually be found: changing diapers, at some doctor or therapist office, handing out snack/sippy cups, refereeing, reading stories, singing, or when I have quiet time, on the computer reading adoption blogs.

I am scared: of dying and leaving my babies for someone else to raise.

I need: to spend more time in the Word of God and in prayer. I also need to spend more
time with my Mom,

I am happy about: my life. It is full of blessings, including my new nephew, Seth, whom I adore!

I hope: that I can be Jesus’ hands and feet on earth and that my children learn from my actions to do the same.

I tag anyone who wishes to do this, just let me know so I could go to your blog and check it out!
