Truly Blessed Tuesday: Truly Blessed

It has been a while since I have done a Truly Blessed Tuesday post,
and I apologize for that,
it is not that I am not thankful for everything in my life -
but I guess my blessings have been over flowing and so has our schedule! 

Today The Lord brought this verse to my mind,
Psalms 37:4
"Delight yourself in the LORD,
and He will give you the desires of your heart."

I remember when He first placed adoption on my heart.
Our friends from church adopted their son from India.
Josh was the cutest little guy I had ever seen.
(In fact, a few years later, Josh was the ring bearer in our wedding!)
I knew then and there that I wanted to adopt -
but I wanted to adopt a little guy from Africa.

 But first He blessed us with 3 incredible biological kiddos!
They understand me more then anyone!
They love me even with all my faults!

Many years later, God led us to China.
Two times! 
and ohhh how blessed we are by these two treasures!

Not sure how many times I was wished
"Happy Mother's Day" by these two - 
(I can't count that high)
it began Saturday night and continue on Monday!

God has blessed us again with two African treasures!

We wait to bring them home,
time is unknown to us of when we will be re-united with them,
but God knows and I have peace in knowing that His time
is perfect!

And a pretty cool hubby, who though sometimes he wants to say "no".
He spends much time with God who softens his heart to
what and who God loves!

How has God blessed you?
