Come along and follow our journey of being what we think is Normal..... just a average family, following God's calling and a life blessed with Down Syndrome

What a powerful saying....

My husband sent this to me this morning..... when you read it all....look at my response to him....

"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did". When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.

Concentrate on this sentence.....
"The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you".

Something good will happen to you today. Something that you have been waitingto hear. This is not a joke; someone will call you by phone or will speak toyou about something that you were waiting to hear.

So my response to him was this:

1. so we get a full price offer on our house today and
2. We get to start our adoption of Varsha in India!!! You know its gonna take a year or so to actually get her here!!! India is a LONG process. I thought the 11.5 mths for Guatemala was long...India is typically 18 mths.

Lyndsey & Michael I can hear you all the way up here....stop screaming!! LOL

Neither one of these may happen today, but either way, I know my GOD IS A POWERFUL AND ALMIGHTY GOD!!!! He will do what is BEST for our family in HIS timing! So I fall back on this statement...
"The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you".

This is such a true and powerful statement! God will always provide and carry us through to the other side of what we feel is something we just cant handle.

5 nice people had this to say:

i looked into the play food sets. and here is what they have: the ice cream set, condiments set, pizza set, cake set, 4 food groups set, spices set, and the cuting fruit set. they are priced from 19.99 to 29.99, new. they don't have any used sets. i looked on the website and it is about the same prices.
