I open my heart embracing Your change. On You I fix my gaze. I feel the heat of Your lamp on my feet guiding my way. Why do I worry- why do I worry about tomorrow when You are the one who holds my future in Your hands. Faithful Father- I surrender all to You. All my love and all my devotion- all to You. Following peace, completely fulfilled and confidently still through King or stranger You broaden my path as I walk out Your will.
These are lyrics to a Sarah Kelly song, and they completely say how I feel today. Lily spent the day with Mrs. O'Malley. I put her in her car this morning - and there were no tears. Then, when she brought her back to school this afternoon, I learned about all of the fun things Lily did today. She went to the potty for Mrs. O'Malley with no problems whatsoever; she picked up eggs on the farm; visited with sheep; explored her house; played a Grand Piano; went to sleep easily; and slept all afternoon. Lily had the best day, and she was soooo happy when the day was over. She didn't complain one time on the drive home. She just talked and giggled all the way. Now, she is happily playing with her Baba.
We are still searching for a babysitter. As of last night, we hit 85 phone calls. We are meeting with a really nice lady tomorrow afternoon. I will let you know how things go, but I am going to leave everything up to God. I just know He will send the perfect person to us for Lily.
By the way, we had a wonderful friend to take some amazing photos of Lilybug a couple of weekends ago. I would love for you to check them out. The address is http://www.collages.net/ Our Username is Jamie, Stephanie and Lily. The password is 23972. You will have to put in your email address and your first name to view the site just for recording purposes. But, the pictures of Lily are so beautiful! Jamie looks quite handsome, too.
Please continue to pray for us! All of the prayers are definitely working!
