We Stand Amazed! Utterly and Positively Amazed!

Today we come humbly before our God and say....Thank you! Thank you so much Lord! Since our last post, we have received an additional $691.00! This means that we are actually down to only needing 58.89 people to give $100.00!! Isn't that amazing?? In the last week and a half, an incredible $1,941.00 has come in. Some of it from the most unusual and unexpected people and places! This is how our God likes to work. So that NO man can take credit for it!

We are still eagerly waiting to be matched with a birth Mom. The Mom, Nicole that we had mentioned, who is giving birth next week, has been matched with a family in Florida. We know that God has the perfect child in mind for us, and we just need to trust and wait on Him.
We just started a wonderful 30 devotional on Faith from George Muller. Today's entry had this scripture:  "Don't be afraid, just believe"  Mark 5:36

The title of today's entry was:  Triumphant Faith!
Here is a quote from the devotion:  "Faith is above circumstances. No war, no fire, no water, no business panic, no loss of friends, no death can touch it. It goes on its own steady course. It triumphs over all difficulties. It works most easily in the greatest difficulties. Those who really confide in God, because they know the power of His arm and the love of His heart as demonstrated in the death and resurrection of His only begotten Son are helped, whatever their trials and difficulties might be."

May we have this faith!
Join us in this prayer:
"Father, help my faith to rise above my circumstances today. Whatever comes my way, may I rest in the power of Your Son's resurrection and see Him seated at Your right hand. Strengthen me to hold on to Your unchanging love."  Amen
