Where Are All the Referrals, Lord?

I woke up this morning asking, "Where are all the referrals, Lord?" It seems that just like with pregnancies, adoption referrals come in waves... Months go by and nothing happens, and then POW!, everybody announces a pregnancy/referral. Well, it's been a while now and I say we're ready. So, Lord, bring on the referrals! I'm praying for all my sweet blogging friends to hear amazing news this week.

"Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song.
For the Lord is the great God, the great king above all gods.
In His hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to Him.
The sea is His, for He made it, and His hands formed the dry land.
Come let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
for He is our God and we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His care."
Psalm 95:1-7

Hang in there, friends. All those dossiers are in His hands, too... and He knows the longing of your heart.

Here are a few photos again to distract you! Since we had such a great time in the sand the other day and the weather is so beautifully warm, we've been enjoying the beach lately. Elianna Ray napped for hours on this beach adventure, but the rest of us had a fantastic time. It'll be cold and rainy again soon enough, but for now... surf's up!

Thou shall not covet....do you live ON the beach or have to walk or drive? I can handle the truth down here in cloudy, cold Texas:)

I so appreciate your prayers sweet friend- keep them coming!
