Bad News/Good News

Today was a day of bad and good news.

First the bad - We found out that the contract on our house in Florida fell through. Our house went back on the market today. We stepped out onto the water, the waves are really scary. I've fallen several times, but Christ has been there every time with his hand held out to help me up. He's patient, even when my faith is weak. Again I lean on the verse Exodus 14:14, "The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still." It's hard to be still when I feel like I need to be in control. But I just can't control the sell of a house.

Now the good - We have a court date!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We get to go meet Hadassah on December 13th. I probably check my email 10 times a day, looking to see if I have an email from our agency. The day that I don't look, the email comes. See, my being in control is of no use. I think I have a lesson to learn.

So, the emotional roller coaster continues. And there is faith to be grown, that's for sure.


  1. Yay!! So excited for you! I will give you all my African travel tips once I get back :)

  2. Oh my goodness, so sad and excited for you at the same time! I'm so sad we didn't get to meet today, but next time for sure. We are pumped about your trip and can't wait to hear all about her!!

  4. This is sad and awesome at the same time. I wish you guys were still here with us to enjoy the snow. Keep standing still. Love you so much!

  5. Amy!!! Congratulations! This will be such an amazing meeting and I can't wait to hear all about it!
