The video Jamie included in this post had me crying my eyes out. And her faith in the midst of such obvious sorrow and loneliness? It spoke to me.
Although I cannot write openly about all that is going on in my life right now, due especially to our pending adoption, I will say I doubt I have ever been in a darker or more hopeless place spiritually. Jamie's words were a balm to my very hurting soul. I want that kind of faith.
I haven't asked this in awhile, but I would humbly ask anyone reading this to offer up a prayer for me and my family. I have not heard God's voice or felt his presence in many many months. Nastia and I both are going through several personal trials that have us confused and overwhelmed, and feeling quite abandoned by many of the people that usually support us. We may not have the support we need nearby, but I know we have it in little pockets across the world, through this blog. I'm grateful for any prayers you can offer that might bring us peace and even healing.
