Farewell 2008

Dear Lord,
please give me…
A few friends who understand me and remain my friends;
A work to do which has real value,
without which the world would be the poorer;
A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed;
An understanding heart;
A sense of humor;
Time for quiet, silent meditation;
A feeling of the presence of God;
The patience to wait for the coming of these things,
With the wisdom to recognize them when they come.
Happy New Year!!!

Amen to that prayer! Waiting is sooo hard but I know it will be worth it in the end. Happy New Year to you and to your family!


Amanda said...

Greg's Wife said...

Yes, Mr. B made me laugh, too. He just LOOKS like a stinker. He and Peterson would be Team Disaster.

As I looked at this pic I thought, "What a lovely family- with room for more!" I can't wait to see what He has in store for you, Stephanie. His plan will be revealed in good time... Who knows but it is right around the corner? Look forward with joy to the good news that is coming your way at the end of this hard road. He called you to adoption, and He has already chosen your child(ren). Each day holds new hope of seeing their sweet faces for the first time. Love you!
