It Is For FREEDOM that we are FREE!

Many of you remember (and commented) on two posts in July (#1 and 2) about purchasing a home. Well, the issue has continued to ebb and flow...until this week.

It seems, at least in my life, God's still, small voice is not terribly difficult to discern--but it is easy to ignore. Our lack of peace about purchasing a home was enough to keep us wrestling with the subject, but not enough to demand a decision. But God has faithfully (and finally) brought us to the conclusion -- through much counsel and prayer -- that we cannot both purchase a home AND begin a second Ethiopia adoption.

So we have decided to not purchase a home, and instead pursue an adoption. And we are thrilled...relieved...we are freed!!!

Sell your possessions, and give to the needy.
Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Luke 12:33-34

Thanksful you are at peace, no better decision can be made but the life of a child before material possessions. Easy said, not so easily done. We will be praying for you.
