January 2, 2012

Hello 2012!!! and Hello 11 months!!! (as of right now, 19-25 months to go), so we are still saying in about 2 years. Let's pray that this is the year that the wait times decrease, or at least don't get any longer. We had a talk with our adoption agency, and she asked us if we ever consider completing our adoption through a different country, because some couples consider this when the wait is what it is. I would be lying if I didn't say I didn't think about it, but it's a fleeting thought, a passing moment, because we are too in love with the Philippines to ever change it. We know when we started our adoption, we made it a huge matter of prayer on what country, and we knew God said the Philippines. He hasn't changed that, just because the wait times have! So we wait and rest in His will! :)

We had such a beautiful Christmas, and a friend posted lyrics to a song on my page, Merry Christmas by Third Day. It brought tears to my eyes, and made me long for our girl, but pray that God will hold her in His arms, until we can!

There's a little girl trembling on a cold December morn
Crying for momma's arms
At an orphanage just outside a little China town
There the forgotten are
But half a world away I hang the stockings by the fire
And dream about the day when I can finally call you mine

It's Christmas time again but you're not home
Your family is here and yet you're somewhere else alone
And so tonight I pray that God will come and hold you in his arms
And tell you from my heart I wish you Merry Christmas

As I hang the tinsel on the tree and watch the twinkling lights
I'm warmed by the fire's glow
Outside the children tumble in a wonderland of white,
Make angels in the snow
But half a world away you try your best to fight the tears
And hope that heaven's angels come to carry you here

It's Christmas time again but you're not home
Your family is here and yet you're somewhere else alone
And so tonight I pray that God will come and hold you in his arms
And tell you from my heart I wish you Merry Christmas

Christmas is a time to celebrate the holy child
And we celebrate his perfect gift of love
He came to earth to give his life
And prepare a place for us
So we could have a home with him above

It's Christmas time again and now you're home
Your family is here so you will never be alone
So tonight before you go to sleep, I'll hold you in my arms
And I'll tell you from my heart, and I'll you from my heart
I wish you Merry Christmas

I can't wait until, I can hug her and tell her, Merry Christmas!!

While we wait though, we live.....



I ran my first Half Marathon!
