first of all, i want to thank Ashley, for sharing a link to the following blog post on facebook. i read it this morning, and i have to say...it is RIGHT ON the money, yall. The basic idea of the post is that when a family steps out in faith/obedience to adopt a child, they should be prepared for satan's attack. i won't go into the details here, but i have to say that the past several weeks have been very challenging for our family in numerous ways.....and i KNOW in my heart that satan's just trying a throw a wrench in the plans. i know in my heart he'd rather us leave Lane in china. i know it as surely as i know the sun was shining earlier today. But thank GOD that GOD is on our side!! He'll see us through challenges, both big and small, as we continue on this journey towards our daughter. you know, the same can be said for every person that's doing something God wants them to do...whatever it is. satan doesn't like it one bit, and he wants so much to mess up God's plans. are you stepping out in faith in a new direction? keep looking up!
