I have shared with y'all about sweet Linny.
I have asked y'all to pray for her family
to find her.
I know that some of you thought,
"ohhhh Jodi's gonna announce
that they are adopting Linny!"
and ya know -
I wish that was the case.
There has been a lot of discussion in our house about Linny.
She has touched our hearts,
and opened our minds.
One night I couldn't sleep -
The thought of Linny sitting in her crib
all alone haunted me.
I just want her to know that she is loved.
As I prayed,
God reminded me that she is HIS child,
and that HE cares for her
greater then I could ever.
I asked him, "Is Linny ours?"
I cried myself to sleep.
In the morning I woke with a peace
that can only come from God.
Even though I knew the answer was "no".
and I have peace?
I have also have had guilt that I am not rushing to bring her home,
but God's plans are not ours.
As the weeks went by,
and advocating continued -
guess what God has going on with sweet Linny!
There are two families seriously praying
about bringing her home!
(and one of them lives in our neck of the woods.)
God has huge plans for this sweet girl and her family!
I am so very thankful that HE brought her into our lives,
and that we have been able to be
her prayer warrior!
Sometimes God doesn't ask you to adopt -
but to pray.
Take the time to get to know a child,
to hurt for a child,
to be unable to sleep and share the
loneliness of a child.
If you don't know where to find
any children -
let me know -
I can help you with that!
