June Numbers

I received a call from the book store this morning saying that the book I ordered was in "Fields of the fatherless" by Tom Davis. after lunch today I sun screened the kids and set them loose into our little kiddie pool. I turned on the river radio station on my computer and then drifted away into my new book. I am truly not a reader. I never go out looking for a new book to read, but here I am engrossed in two books. I guess when God puts a passion in your heart you start to crave more knowledge on that passion.

Carrie came home for dinner, which we sat on the back porch to eat. It is a gorgeous evening (sometimes I feel guilty wondering where our child is and if they are in good care). During dinner Carrie looked up at me after looking at her phone and said "do you want to know our new numbers?". My heart jumped in my chest... "well of course I do!". This process is so exciting! Oh how I wish we were leaving on the next jet to meet our little child and bring them home. This waiting... ugh.

We decided to set up the tent in the backyard for a camp out tonight. The kids are so excited, they can't stay out of the thing. The nursery is so close to being finished and we can't wait to share pictures with everyone. We are just waiting on a couple finishing touches, but it looks incredible. We have names picked out for each sex's but we are going to wait before sharing them. A little hint is that they must start with a "D" because our other two children's names do.

So, you want to know the numbers, right?
Well, they're not really number but rather Psalm's.

Psalm 56:3-4 "When I am afraid,I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?

Psalm 34:3-4 Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.

We will continue to Glorify and Trust God!
56 on the girl's list
34 on the boy's list

Another giant step closer, yeah!



  1. Like I said on the listserv -- this is the best idea ever! To use the Psalms for your new numbers -- what an amazing thing to cling to!!!

  2. Yay!! Another step closer!! Can't wait to be on that wait list too! :) Love the Psalms...great idea!
