Things are Happening!

On Tuesday morning Josh woke me up at 5am with, “Honey! HONEY! I just got a text! June 13th!”

And just to fill you in, what he meant is, we have a court date in Uganda, and it’s June 13th.

That’s right! We’re going to get our kids! In less than 2 weeks!

Of course after he told me that I couldn’t go back to sleep. I laid there for about 10 minutes freaking out. And then went downstairs and got some coffee and continued to freak out. And eventually gave myself a talking to and stopped freaking out and started praying.

And that pretty much sums up the last few days. Freak out. Pray. Freak out. Pray.

Wednesday night was a leadership meeting at our church, which was honestly a welcome distraction from all the planning, laundry, list-making, packing, childcare organizing, etc. And Josh opened the meeting leading us in singing that wonderful old melody, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus. What a sweet, sweet reminder when all my eyes want to do is turn to all of the things I need to do.

And there IS a lot to do.

Josh has been busily pulling all of our paperwork together. He has, bless him, kept me completely out of the loop on this. I honestly don’t understand anything. He tells me where to sign and that’s pretty much it. I’m pretty sure he’ll be an expert on adopting from Uganda when all this is said and done.

Meanwhile, I’ve been preparing for a trip to Uganda with an unspecified end date while trying to coordinate with family about who will watch Reagan and Charlie while we’re gone. Sometimes I work furiously all day and sometimes I sit and stare at the wall.  I’m not kidding.

BUT, all of these earthly, stressful, seemingly impossible things are so temporary. And our Father in heaven who has carried us thus far is eternal, and good, and all-knowing, and He loves us. Even typing that gives me such peace.

I’ll be updating in the weeks to come and while we’re in Uganda! But while you wait…

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace
