Someone more organized than I am would have had a post prepared and queued to publish last week. But I found myself in Haiti without Internet access. And so it was really still around here on Still Saturday. Forgive me.
I had a heart-wrenching and heart-filling week with stories I’ve not yet processed to share. It was a week filled with interruptions and opportunities to go with the flow and to practice stillness of spirit. It was week of tears and laughter and lots of hugs. It was a week where God seemed to have slammed doors but then threw them wide open. It was a week in which He placed a rainbow in the clouds–one we saw BEFORE the storm. It was a week in which He moved mountains and parted waters, and today I can only sit here in jaw-dropped awe.
We taught the kids this week that God has a plan for each of us, and we can trust Him to carry it out in His timing, in His season.
And then we watched Him do it in a mighty way.
My friends adopted this sweet Haitian girl. Then they waited and waited because there was more red tape to shred. But finally it is finished! Tonight (Friday) they’re winging their way home with her, and they will land just one hour before her birthday. How cool is that? How cool is God?
Celebrate with me, with them. And you don’t even need to be still about it!
Happy Birthday, Sania!
And welcome home!
Celebrating in the not-stillness,
Welcome to the Still Saturday Community where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and reflect on the depth of sparse words. We’d love for you to join us. Grab the button and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to be still together, to gaze long and drink deep.
