A blessed life

Life has been very busy recently. Between work, school, researching adoption, and just general life, we’ve felt a little crunched. It’s easy to overlook God’s goodness when we get busy.

But we know we have a blessed life.

This week I remembered again:

We have amazing families – biological and chosen.

We are surrounded by loving friends, not just in Florida, but all over the country.

We have folks who are supporting us in our adoption – people we’ve met and haven’t met.

We are part of a community of Christ followers who encourage me in my faith.

We laugh, a lot.

We have a little dog who’s enthusiastic about not ever being wet (hence some of the laughter).

We have a home, jobs, and comforts.

We have a blessed life.

  1. Amen! We all need these reminders now and again. I am so glad you and Evan, even besides family, so many people supporting you as you seek His face and His will for your lives. We are/I am blessed to have you in our lives. May the Lord continue to bless you richly, beyond measure and grant the desires of your hearts. Love and blessings!

  2. You are so right Carla…. I thank the Lord every day for blessings that I sooooo take advantage of, and don’t feel like I deserve sometimes. Thanks to you and Evan my heart has been opened to a whole new ‘love’ in your journey of adoption!! We do have a wonderful, loving family- thank you for being a vital part of it!!
