When you need to say thank you

Many of you know the struggles we've faced the last few months and so many of you have stood with us in prayer.
Today I felt like the hand of God reached down from Heaven and answered many tear-soaked prayers.

So I just want to say thank you. To God. And to you: 

I breathe a prayer of thanks.

Thank you for the new home,

and a yard spacious enough for little legs to run around in. 

For the miracle of new beginnings. 

Thank you for their sweet voices singing.

And for Anna, who just returned from Congo
after months away--back into our arms.

Thank you for the faith of children, innocent and strong. 

Thank you for the hands who hold us when we need holding.  

And for the students who will serve with us

and for the people who we know are coming. Though we don't know their faces
we know our Father will send them soon.

Thank you for the fact that You hear us, God.

You always hear us. 

And answer prayer.  

You are just waiting for the opportunity to show Your love.

"You can ask for anything in My name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father." John 14:13

So whatever you are hoping for, waiting for, believing God for...don't give up. 

Your answer is coming too.
