Mother-Daughter Tea

As I sit here trying to put into words how I am feeling, I am truly speechless. Sometimes I wish I were a poetic writer, but sadly that is not one of my gifts. I am blessed, though, with the best small group ever. They did such a wonderful job organizing what started out to be more of a shower, and turned into a wonderful event for mothers & daughters.

111 people came today. Some probably had no idea they would be hearing so much adoption talk, but God knew exactly who needed to hear it. One little girl came up to me with her mother, and said "i'm going to tell my daddy we need to adopt." I LOVE IT!!! It is such a blessing to share our story, and when God sparks a desire from that I can't help but smile.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! to my small group, Darby, Kristi, Barbara, Dana, Jennifer, Agnes, & Joy--You ladies truly do Rock!! Thank you to my dear friend Gwen, for speaking sweet words from a mother's heart. Thank you to The Ebensbergers for singing, and thank you to all the wonderful ladies who came & let us share our hearts with you.

Here are a few pictures. To see more you can go to my facebook page & look @ the Mother-Daughter Tea Album.

I didn't know you knew Gwen! That is so cool. I follow her blog regularly too. Glad to hear it went so well for your tea. Praise God!

Praying for our referrals SOON! Wouldn't it be just like God to have us meet in Colombia???

Linda-- As you know, if you follow her blog, Gwen is an awesome woman of God. She is a wonderful friend & cheerleader when I need an ear to fill :)

It would not surprise me in the least if we met in Colombia. God is so good that way!!
