Week 18

Well, at this point, what is there to say? 18 weeks waiting for my little Sparrow.
This morning I couldn't find my keys, and I knew I would be late for work. I ran around my house like a maniac, checking under pillows and cushions, and tears streaming down my face. The subtlety of this stress of waiting is hard to articulate, but I know it's there when I am crying because I am going to be a few minutes late to work. As if somehow, if I am late for work, I will miss "The Call." Even though, logically, I know that Gladney isn't even open when I start my work day.
Please pray for me. This is so much harder than I thought it would be.

I'm with you. It's very hard to wait. Your every action/thought is infiltrated by thoughts of "The Call". FIngers crossed that this is your week. It's like a kid waiting for Christmas.

So often the time of darkness seems overwhelming! Remember 1 Corintians 10:13 or 10:31 I can never remember which...but God will not give us more than we can handle! Praying for a day full of peace and encouraging news!

Praying with you as you wait for "the call". All you can do is lean on Him!

Definitely praying for you! I know. The wait is extremely difficult. I can't wait until you get your referral. I keep thinking it will be any day now...hopefully it will be!

My phone has been ringing off.the.hook. for various reasons this morning and every time I wonder if it is you with news of Sissy. Finally, I changed your ring tone so I don't jump *every* time it rings. I picked O Praise Him because I want to remember to praise Him in EVERY circumstance. I can't even begin to imagine how this is for you.
