Happy Birthday

A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our little guy, Matthew Isaiah.  He's SIX today!   We'll celebrate it when we get home with Eli (who turns FIVE on March 25). 
We are still in Kiev for the waiting period.  We will return to Novograd on Sunday night with George.  On Monday, the court is going to let us proof our paperwork and then we'll recieve it on Tuesday (unless they go ahead and release it to us Monday, which would put us one day ahead).  Then we get birth certificates with the boy's new names.  Then we get passports.  Then we get our visas and then we come home.  We CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's beginning to feel like we live here.  Ugh.  🙂
Psalm 84
10-12  One day spent in your house, this beautiful place of worship beats thousands spent on Greek island beaches.  I'd rather scrub floorsin the house of my God than be honored as a guest in the palace of sin.  All sunshine and sovereign is God, generous in gifts and glory.  He doesn't scrimp sailing all the way with God of the Angel Armies.
We know we're right where we are supposed to be.  Right where God wants us.  So as difficult as it is, we'd rather be nowhere else.  Thank you God for your sovereignty in our lives.
Kids…we'll TRY to call you today.  It's just very difficult because the time window to call you is SO LIMITED and we don't have constant access to the Internet like we are blessed with in the United States.
See you SOON.
Blessings to All!!
Blessed Be the Name of the Lord!
