Updates & Reminders


First, I want to thank you all SO very much for the amazing comments, emails and facebook messages related to my last post. I am humbled and totally overwhelmed that so many would take the time to thoughtfully write so much!

I’m blown away by the depth of your responses. It’s definitely going to take me until next week to get my thoughts together on this one. Living Simply. That’s a doozie of a post. Stay tuned.

Second, please don’t forget the fabulous baby shower I’m hosting over at The Farmer’s Wife Tells All. Please support Lara and Jon as they prepare to bring home Baby A from Uganda… we’re still about $3,000 short of our goal. And you’re probably still short one Canon EOS Rebel T3i Digital Camera. So get yourself on over and sign up! Suggested entries are only $15 a piece!

Finally, I wanted to update y’all on my trip to China. I’m not going. Sad for me but happy for my friend Lydia. Turns out that her husband, David, was able to go over and stay for the entire two week period. So, my travel companion services were not really needed. Even if I am super fun to travel with...

Anyways, I know it's for the best, as I’m planning to return to Uganda in October – and two international trips, and two different weeks away from the kiddos, this fall was going to be a bit much for everyone. (But if you really want to know how I feel about traveling for missions and leaving my children for a brief period of time, read my post entitled Judgment. It’s one of my all time faves.)

Please do pray for my China-bound friends, Lydia and David, as they come to mind this week. They’re leaving for China today and David, who struggles with serious health issues (as you might remember from my post), is experiencing flu-like symptoms at the moment. Certainly not an ideal situation for a long international flight and a two-week stay in China.

And that’s a wrap. Have a great weekend – it’s almost here!!

Ok so I am having fun with my new obsession pinterest which takes me to the lettered cottage where my eye catches the "adoption" tab. I click and find your story. We are on an adoption journey to adopt from the DRC (Congo) and hopefully will travel in November. So glad to read of your organization, your adoption and all God is doing through you for Uganda. Even after this adoption I know that I need to do more....your story was inspiring that if their is a will their is a way.
