Patience

I just got this email from our adoption agency:

I wanted to let you know that your dossier has been sent to Washington DC to be authenticated and should be in Addis Ababa by Monday. We will let you know of the next steps as soon as we can.

I thought it was already in Ethiopia. Oh well. At least it's a step in the right direction. I'm just waiting to see what God has planned for us. I find comfort in Psalm 37:4-7

4 Delight yourself in the LORD
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5 Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him and he will do this:
6 He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
7 Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;

Praying for all those that touch your paperwork to speed it through quickly and for your peace during this wait!
Bet God has something better than you could ever ask, think or imagine in the works for you, my friend.
Just wish He would hurry up about it already!!
Hugs,
Lisa
