We have been given the opportunity to adopt an adorable little boy. I have to tell you we really had no intention of adopting a boy, but at the same time we want to be open to God's plan - not ours. We are taking some time to pray about what God wants us to do. I ask you to join with us in prayer that God would give us clear direction (think flashing neon sign telling us whether or not this is our child kind of clear). We are also praying that our hearts will be open to whatever plan God may have because we know His ways are better than our own.
Please also continue to pray for Anchise. We are still praying for a miracle that she would be returned to Three Angels. That would certainly be the best Christmas gift I could think of!
We are looking forward to celebrating Christ's birth and spending time together as a family over the next few days. I pray your holidays are filled with many blessings.
So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
Yo prese ale, yo jwenn Mari ak Jozèf, ansanm ak tipitit la kouche kote yo bay bèt yo manje a. Lè yo wè l', yo tanmen rakonte sa zanj lan te di yo sou pitit la. Tout moun ki t'ap koute yo te sezi tande sa yo t'ap rakonte a. Mari menm te kenbe tout pawòl sa yo nan kè l', li t'ap repase yo nan tèt li. Apre sa, gadò mouton yo al fè wout yo; yo t'ap di jan Bondye gen pouvwa, yo t'ap fè lwanj li, paske tou sa yo te tande ak tou sa yo te wè a te dakò ak sa zanj lan te fè yo konnen.
Luke 2:16-20 (Haitian Creole)
