His stocking is hung and embroidered with his new name…Ezekiel. His old name…which means boy…doesn’t describe my little boy and all he will be. He is so much more than just a boy…so a new name Ezekiel “strength of God” will be one he will carry instead. Just as God says in His Word that […]
Praying for protection for your little one. Praying for peace for you & your hubby. I feel in my heart that this adoption will be faster than you expect. This may sound strange but with Isaac in my heart I saw him running at a time when he was weak to stand. This child I feel rushing, like there is a rush to get him to you & innocent joy like he will spread joy. If you have ever had the pleasure of being around a precious child with Down’s syndrome their joy is infectious. His joy will be such that others will not be able to help themselves but feel it. God is preparing your heart for this little one who will need so much more from you. Cherish the hours that you have with your littles, God is giving you that time to fill them up with love & one on one time before the newest birdie enters the nest. Nehemiah 8:10 Do not greive for the JOY of the Lord is your STRENGTH! Isaiah 5:26 He lifts up a banner for the distant nations, he whistles for those at the ends of the earth. Here they come, swiftly and speedily!
Glad to know I’m not the only one with an “extra” stocking hung. We had actually already begun the process, but hung the stocking as a way of telling the kids. It was quite funny for them to count the stockings, and recount, trying to figure out why there were 6 and not 5. LOL And yes, having their sweet picture and then doing the paper chase is hard, but I find it as motivation 🙂
This post brought tears to me last night – what a beautiful thing it is that our Father gives us new names and sets us in families — praying for yall!
