Thankful

"Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4

I am thankful for my husband.

I felt like after my last post, I needed to make sure to say how thankful I am for him. Because truly I am!

For those of you that don't know him, he is a shoot from the hip kind of guy. He jumps before thinking, speaks without using his filter... lives life without much planning.

Sometimes these things make me crazy, until I realize that it's ok to live that way occasionally. :o)

The fact that he's not willing to jump into this adoption that I was so focused on, is a gift.

We are a team. I cannot move forward with something this big without his full participation. So without it we stay where we are right now.

I am ok with it. I did get heated... it was me...acting like a spoiled child. Because honestly there isn't much he wouldn't give me or do for me if it were in his power. Heck, it was his idea to go to Wyoming to visit my best friend, knowing how much it would mean to me.

This weekend a dear friend of ours said to him that he needed to give me whatever I wanted ...especially if it's an adoption. ;o) (love that lady and I didn't even prompt her!) He said he's waiting for his "burning bush"... I asked could she not be his burning bush?! He said nope. oh well...

I haven't given up the thought that there is a little girl out there for us. I am however willing to trust God, because if it were His will to move right now then D would be all over it.

So today I am thankful for a husband who loves me no matter what...and loves me enough to make me wait on God's blessings.

sounds like a great man to me!! and when and if the time is right I am sure he will get his "burning bush" though I think you should change his name to Moses and get him a rod real quick and see what he can do with it!:)
you just might be able to part the sea and walk to your daughter!:)
praying for you as you wait to wait!:)

Oh, I love Psalm 37:4. I went to one of Beth Moore's conferences and she encouraged us to pray it daily for a year - WOW - God worked amazingly through my prayers. I know He will answer your heart's desires as well. :-) Thanks for sharing your heart.

Praying as you wait, even though the waiting is never fun. We too have had our times of waiting though and looking back on them now I can clearly see what God was up to. ;0) Excited to see what plans He has for your family because I know He has some. :0) Amy
