I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

Answered prayer

 Yesterday was a day full of answered prayer. 

 The translation of our adoption homestudy came in. We now have it, in French, ready for the government of Benin to read and approve. Now I just have to figure out exactly whom to send it to. 
 It will still be a waiting game, but at least we will be on to the next step of waiting. 

 Then, Andy's Officer Package, which he had mailed from Afghanistan over two weeks ago, finally arrived. It was all filled out, signed and initialed, and ready to be handed to his commander at Moody. I just had to add a few other papers which were waiting here. 
 I was planning to load up the kids and head south today. This morning I called the education counselor on base to set up an appointment with him. When he heard that I was driving down there (over four hours drive, with two kids) just to walk to several different offices, get signatures and turn around and drive back again, he very generously offered to do it for me. I am so very grateful! 
 I overnighted the package to him, after making copies of everything... just in case! 
 I tend to stress, so thought that a preventative measure seemed wise. 
 Both of those things, the homestudy and the officer package, were things that I had been stressing about for awhile now. 
 God had really impressed on me the need to LET GO of them. When I finally was able to give them up, the stress went away. I had to remind myself that I wasn't the one in control. 
 Then, lo and behold, they arrived! 

 I am beyond blessed.
