Okay, so, sure, in my brain right now I know that I should be just completely emotionally maxed out and frustrated right now! And, apart from God's grace, I would be! But my blog post title was truly my first reaction to the email from our agency, as I laughed! I know it's not funny . . . but it kind-of is right now!

So, we still don't know if we are going to travel this weekend or if our travel will be delayed. The meeting between our agency's staff in Ethiopia and the U.S. Embassy was supposed to take place on their Monday, which was last night while we slept, but for some reason the embassy was unable to meet. They are supposed to meet, now, on their Tuesday, which is tonight while we sleep. So, we should ;o) know tomorrow morning whether or not we can travel this week or if we are delayed. If we are delayed, they should be able to tell us how long the delay will be.

Thank you so much for all of you who check here for updates and who are faithfully praying. We need the prayers (I need them), and we are so in need of God's grace! It is only by His mercy on us that we can keep the "big picture" in mind in this situation. We know His will is best and have full confidence in that . . . just kind-of wish we knew what that was right now ;o) But, I guess, it's obviously His will for us to not know for now!

A reminder for myself - "For God, alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from HIM"!!! Psalm 62:5

I can't imagine the toll this waiting must be taking. Know that I am praying for you and the other families that God will move this mountain and that you will be united with your children sooner rather than later!

Good title - Seriously?!?! Again, your perspective is accurate, whether you feel it at every moment or not. Thanks for the reminder!

Sarah! Thanks for the update....hopefully by tomorrow you will know one way or the other what is going on this week! Thankfully you have the Lord to give you the peace and patience during all this insane waiting! It's great to know that He will work each and every detail. Praying it IS going to be this weekend!
