‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

God is Good

So, after my outpouring of all my sadness here last night, I went to my room and prayed and prayed until I fell asleep. And what do I wake to?

  • A message from Dasha's host family that she is doing well, and photos are on their way
  • A letter and drawing by D with the heading 'Mamuchka', sent to me by the director.
  • An email from the orphanage that all is well, boxes are arriving like mad and they miss me.
  • two giant boxes from Iraq on our front steps  (a brother serving there)
  • My first official docs for my dossier arrived from my attorney - hurrah!
  • A good friend dropped by a massive bag of dolls for the orphanage - including two more American girl dolls and bags of accessories for them!
This all occurred before 10am, and now all I need is word that Anya is alive and well, and I'll be deliriously happy.

Thank you God, for putting my heart at ease!


  1. Yes God is good, all the time. I give Him praise for touching you today.

  2. You've made me smile. Thanks for sharing that!

    What a wonderful post! Thank you.

  4. I hope you hear from Anya soon, then.

  5. Hoping and praying for news from Anya soon. . . and I'm so thrilled that the orphanage is staying in touch, getting their boxes and so on!

  6. Good News is ALWAYS something wonderful to wake up to!

  7. We are traveling visiting family and I have not had internet access, so have been thinking about and praying without knowing what's up (so if I don't post many comments, you know why! and I know its not like you don't have good comment love here on your blog, but I also know that every comment is like a hug, and I want you to keep getting mine! ; ). SO wonderful that you received such an outpouring of love on this morning--He is good indeed!
