The place God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.

The Many Faces Of Only 3 Boys

While unpacking some lovely furniture last night...which I'm not sure we were supposed to yet be unpacking...
...we came across these...
Oh the fun this Christmas holds.

The eldest wanting to be flexible and try on as many different hats as possible...
The youngest picking his favourite and not letting it leave his head...
Their Daddy teaching them about this fun...
And while we received word yesterday that our wait time could be more like another 6 months (instead of only another 4) which totals 8 months from when our Dossier reached Ethiopia...just to wait for a referral...times like these remind us that the wait will be worth it. They help pass the hours and days. They remind us not to ignore, or wish the journey away, or look for the "finishing" line. Rather, we need to seek these moments. The dots along our journey of a line. They are the losses we will encounter when we look ahead instead of turning to enjoy the scenery around us. They are what build us into the unique family we are.

...these bring back so many memories for us too. what a blessing these hats were in the furniture boxes...we had no idea the movers had put them there. do you believe in serendipity?! or perhaps an even higher intervention.....
