kindred spirits

We are in Kuwait right now visiting our favorite family, the Briden Bunch!! I can’t say how much I’ve enjoyed talking about adoption with Crystal. It is refreshing to share with another who understands my heart and “gets it” too. She is a dear friend and an inspiration to me. Just started reading a BIG book titled “Toddler Adoption” that Crystal gave me. :)

love like no other

My heart has never known this love before.
How can I love someone this much whom I’ve never even met?!
Is it crazy that I love these children, with a love so fierce, who I don’t even know?

song of my heart

I see the king of glory
Coming on the clouds with fire
The whole earth shakes
The whole earth shakes

I see his love and mercy
Washing over all our sin
The people sing
The people sing

[Chorus]
Hosanna
Hosanna
Hosanna in the highest [x2]

I see a generation
Rising up to take their place
With selfless faith
With selfless faith

I see a near revival
Stirring as we pray and seek
We’re on our knees
We’re on our knees

[Chorus]

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me

Break my heart from what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdoms cause
As I go from nothing to
Eternity

[Chorus x2]

Hosanna in the highest

closer

It is now April.

We bought tickets home!!! We fly out April 18th. We will be spending a few weeks traveling on our way home. I am so excited. I need a vacation. We both need a vacation. We both need rest. I don’t think it will hit me that we are stateside for good (at least for now) until months later. I can’t even begin to process it all. And yet, my heart can’t help but get anxious to get home… for “home” gets us one huge step closer to the “official” start of our next journey… :) Oh how I day-dream about them!! <3
