Yesterday, as I walked and prayed, I finally said it, I told my heavenly Father this timing was ALL His, I would stop trying to predict and control and pretend I understood the timing better than Him.
At 3:00 o’clock yesterday afternoon, Brian rushed into my office. Unbeknownst to me, he too felt yesterday might be special. He called our agency. I think without saying it we knew this Sunday would be hard, without her and without a travel date. The agency quickly identified who we were and said, “WE ARE JUST WRITING YOU AN EMAIL, WE HAVE YOUR TRAVEL APPROVAL.”
As Brian entered my office, he just said 3 words, “WE GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
If yesterday is any indication, I need to buy some waterproof mascara!!!
We wait for a Consulate appointment and then we set our flights, on or about April 11. God is incredibly GOOD.
The children came home from school. I met them just after 4. We stood and held hands in my bedroom, where we pay for Baby Sister every night and asked, “what have we been waiting for for 2 years?” Beau said, “travel?”. And the hoopin and hollerin began!
The Hills are China bound and we couldn’t be more joyous!
We thank our heavenly Father for His boundless mercy and His perfect timing.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Eph 3:20-21
