OK, so I have been letting a couple people in our dream to add to our family, possibly from Africa unless God has other plans. No we are not starting now because well with the economy things are very, very tight right now. Our house is for sale (anyone want a house?) and well God hasn't said it's time yet.
For some reason people think we are crazy and that would only make 4 maybe 5 kids if we took a sibling group (don't tell Chris I said that). I know after our families have read these last 2 posts they are really going to think we are nuts but we are really only nuts for God and kiddos, oh and each other (I love my hubby like crazy) so I think that's OK. Anyway this is what I have to say to anyone who thinks we are crazy:
I Would Rather Gather Children......
Along the path of life,
Some would gather roses,
And rest from wordly strife;
But, I would gather children
From among the thorns of sin,
I would seek a gorgeous curl,
And a freckled, toothless grin.
For money cannot enter
In that land of endless day,
And roses that are gathered
Soon will wilt away.
But, Oh, the laughing children,
As I cross the sunset sea,
And the gates swing wide to heaven
I can take them in with me.
And if you don't understand why we are thinking about an African baby well it's OK if you don't understand. I think of a rainbow family as a little taste of what heaven will be someday. So here it is, it is not a secret anymore we are hoping God blesses us with another precious gift someday. Now does anyone know where we can get a money tree to grow in our backyard?
