An unexpected joy

Katy commented we'll have the unexpected joy of hosting back-to-back
babies adopted from Ethiopia - this sweet girl dropped into our laps unexpectedly
on Tuesday, and the Glovers bringing their sweet girl on Thursday!

Busy days ahead - planning for VBS, doing last minute clutter cleaning,
taking some more photos (planned this time!) and picking the Glovers up
at the airport.

So I leave you with some of the shots I snapped of our dear little friend,

and the substantial, significant, long-awaited, yearned-for news that
Amy has not had a seizure for an entire week!
Perhaps the Keppra is working...regardless, I burst forth with songs of
praise tonight, instead of songs of mourning.

Give thanks to the Lord
Our God and King
His love endures forever
For He is good, He is above all things
His love endures forever
Sing praise, sing praise
With a mighty hand
and outstretched arm
His love endures forever
For the life that's been reborn
His love endures forever
Sing praise, sing praise

Forever God is faithful
Forever God is strong
Forever God is with us
~Psalm 136 paraphrased by Chris Tomlin
