The Day I Could Have Met an Axe Murderer & Other Uplifting Stories

When my blogging friend Tracy contacted me about getting together I was thrilled! I excitedly shared my news with my dear husband who immediately replied, "How do you know she is not an axe murderer?" Hmmm...

I am happy to report not only was she NOT an axe murderer, but she was a lovely person with a sweet son and I could have talked to her all day. It wasn't at all like meeting a stranger, but more like a long lost friend. It made me long to go on a blogging buddy road trip so I could meet all of the wonderful people I've become so fond of.

If I had reported on this yesterday I would have told you there was potential for us to go to court this week. Now, I'm not so sure. Our POA in Ghana has taken ill and has been incommunicato since last week. This makes chances for court slim to none. We are praying for his health and that he will be able to return to work soon. Please Lord!

We were thrilled to get a DVD of Mercy in the mail yesterday from our agency. It was great to see her opening our recent gift to her and trying it on. We also got to talk with her on the computer for about 35 minutes. What a blessing! This girl certainly makes it easy for us to fall in love.

Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord.
Psalm 27:14

I have only been able to meet one blogging friend, who I didn't already know in person. And it was such a blessing. Let me know when you are ready for that blog buddy road trip, I'll join you. =)

I've meet up with our fellow adoptive/blog buddies a couple of times and it was wonderful! I can't wait to do it again...

It's wonderful that you can talk with mercy!

Oh I am jealous. I wish it were us getting together. Lord Jesus please heal their POA and bring on a court date. Thank you for the DVD Father! So glad you had some stuff to get you through.

I'm sorry your fundraiser wasn't more profitable - but your attitude about it is an inspiration. I came CLOSE to meeting a blog-friend this week. Well....maybe sometime.

I sometimes think I know some of my blog-friends better than the friends I see every day. Odd, but true.
