So this month my goal was to write something I was thankful for everyday until Thanksgiving (via facebook). I already missed a day, Day #3. Can I just say that my weekend was so jam packed full of God's gifts that I didn't even have time to write! So instead of writing an extremely long status, Day #3 deserves a blog entry! So here it is, a day late!
This past Saturday, Jon and I left the girlies with Nana and Papa and headed down to Maryland. It was a seven hour drive, full of pod-casts and gummy bears. We were headed down to visit Centerpoint Church in Annapolis for their Sunday morning services, to share our adoption story. The whole thing was crazy wonderful! The church family was completely welcoming. We spent the night with the beautiful Sanchez family who were incredibly thoughtful. I saw Leslie Howard, who shared this opportunity with Jon and I in the first place. We are forever thankful for her thoughtfulness. I met Jaclyn Holmes, the director of Love Gives- www.love-gives.com . We also had the privilege of spending time with Pastor Donnie and his wife Jennifer. They are doing amazing things for God's kingdom. Not only is the church financially blessing us, their encouragement an prayers are felt. We are completely humbled that these people who did not even know us, have come behind us. The adoption process can really be scary sometimes in the unknown moments, Christ heard our prayers
and answered them through Centerpoint Church.
