August

Friday, August 1st was the deadline for adoption cases entering the Ethiopian courts before the rainy season. (There is still a 10% chance that they will make an exception due to A's age but that was the closing date for at least 2 to 3 months)

Sunday, August 10th, I will be 41 years old.

Friday, August 15th, Dean will be 36 years old.

Monday, August 11th, we will mark 10 years since E was diagnosed with Juvenile diabetes.

Friday, August 29th will mark 3 years since Hurricane Katrina changed everything in America.

AND

August marks month 8 of our adoption process and I am yet again filling out forms for finances. I was told about another grant/loan organization by Melinda so I am applying to them.

We sent A an LSU throw and some pictures today. Our lady from the agency is traveling to Ethiopia on the 9th so she will be taking the stuff to him. She is also going to try and convince the courts to hear our case even though the courts are closed for the Rainy season. The rainy season last about three months so that could put us NOT traveling to get him until November. Yea, I hate even typing a month that far away.

BUT I am so hopeful. I'm not heavy. I just know God has a reason for the timing, from immigration taking WAY too long, finances and court dates, there is a reason for it all. I can't lose site of the fact that He has this all in his hands.

So, August IS emotional already, the thought of E living with diabetes for 10 years is mind blowing. She's really struggled lately with control and just wanting to act like she doesn't have diabetes.

My birthday and Dean's will be uneventful cuz' once I hit 40, the rest are all down hill.

Katrina, wow, I do think it changed America. It certainly turned many people against George Bush and the government but it also woke up many sleeping Christians and they stepped up like never before and that is so great. I will post much more about Katrina later.

For now, I will join with Children's Cup for the 40 days of prayer, give my energy to others that are in much greater need and hurting way more then I. Spend time with and enjoy my family, friends and the people of the Baton Rouge Dream Center/Winbourne, pray for and miss "A" and keep on keepin' on for Jesus.

Life's a garden-DIG IT!
