"Naomi will be the 6th person in the family."
For almost 6 months Naomi has been part of our family. Emelia has decided they will have bunk beds. She has labeled which clothes and dolls Naomi will have. She told me I will need a bigger car which can hold 4 kiddos.
It is strange to think about another daughter. I wonder if it will come to be. Andrew and I have talked that our family doesn't feel complete but neither does our financial future. We are beyond exhausted all day and night. We both feel overwhelmed by the 3. BUT...
Today I was learning about the names of God and I was studying "El Shaddai" the all powerful all sufficient one.
"When you trust in El Shaddai, you will learn to give up as you watch God match your need with His sufficiency regardless of the depth of the challenge." (From trusting in the Names of God by Catherine Martin)
It was really cool to pray today
I am willing. You are all sufficient. I want to give up seeking anything else for comfort. You are enough for me. If Naomi is to be in our family I completely trust in you to make it so. I trust wholeheartedly in your provision and plan. Amen!
Now i sit and wonder. Hmmm.... Will Emelia's desire and heart for a sister come to create an amazing love story for Naomi. Will we be able to tell her we prayed, planned and dreamed about her for years before we met her. Will we say that God planted a seed in our hearts to rescue her long before she was even born.
I can honestly say I am excited to see how this story ends.
