Crazy? Love...

I read a fantastic blog called A Place Called Simplicity.

This post is about Crazy Love. About sharing our needs...desires...hopes with others and allowing us to be blessings to each other. I love the idea.

Part of the request in the post is to share a little about our lives and our needs.
The first question was, do we tithe? We do, but honestly we don't tithe 10% of our money. I think we try to justify it with the fact that we tithe at least 20% of our time though :o) God's been working in our hearts here.

The next question was what church we attend and if we are involved. That one is much easier to answer. We attend Virginia Beach United Methodist church. We are both involved. D is the Sunday school teacher for the 3 and 4 yr olds, is on the Administrative board and attends a Men's bible fellowship. I am co-leading the mission team to Ethiopia (which has been a full time job) and I am the Vice Chair of the mission committee.

Our need.... my need....and as I read it, wonder how selfish it is.
But I ache for another child. We have 2 bio, 2 adopted from Ethiopia. My arms ache for another one. My dear hubby is not on board with me yet. He say's he's waiting for his 'burning bush' ... I know that a large part of his concern is the expense of adoption. If that was not a factor we would be bringing home another sweet soul to a forever home.

Thank you Linny for your prayers and this crazy idea! :o)

Hm, maybe your husband needs to read crazy love to change his tought on adoption. Oh that book is so amazing. I read it over and over. Do you know that Chan gave up his church and the congegration is now worshiping outside on bleacher like in a stadium? Rain or shine.

all of us with love said...

Praying God will meet your needs in a way only He can.

Praying for your family, and if that God wants you to adopt again, that your husband will see God where he never thought he would... :)
