Day 68: Controls Please

I have not blogged in many, many days. So much has happened since our time in Colorado. I have spent many hours praying and seeking God about this turn our life is taking.

On Wednesday of this week, Mike and I, and Zack and Jacob, will become the foster family of two precious little 19 month old twin girls. To say that we are spinning would be an understatement (and considering I've been spinning for a few weeks now, just imagine how the days are now!)

Our emotions are all over the place. We are happy one minute and scared the next. Excited one minute and terrified the next. We are a mess. A crazy, crazy mess. I have spent the last four days rounding up two sets of baby furniture, car seats, high chairs, clothes, toys, etc! I have worried about how to childproof my home and what to feed them and how to take care of their skin and their hair. True to form, I have prayed and prayed and prayed and prayed, but nonetheless, still try to control things.

In our flesh we feel chaotic, but in our prayers we feel peace. As a friend of mine said to me last night, "That's the great part, Carol. Because that means that you can sit back and let God work all of this out."

All that to say, I am truly glad that God is in control. We are ready, knowing that He thinks we are ready.


  1. crazy times!! praying for you!

  2. God bless you for providing a safe and loving home for these two little girls... I'll be praying for you.
