Even though I don't blog as much as I should about it - God is so faithful in answering prayers! I want to share a little proof of that with you.
Last December, I posted about winning a give-a-way hosted by my friend Sarah on her blog. To be honest, I wasn't quite sure what to do with the item that I had been gifted with. See, it was an adorable little girl's tutu and matching hair ribbon. Although Mark and I were considering international adoption again at that point, I knew that he really wanted a little boy and I was ok with that. So, I had no idea what to do with this tutu. I considered sending it back to Sarah and asking her to give it to someone with a little girl. I also considered giving it to one of my co-workers for her beautiful granddaughter.
But, God was speaking quietly telling me to keep the tutu. I argued with him, but eventually I said, "Ok God - I am going to trust you to show me what to do with this." I put it in the closet and forgot about it. As I was cleaning out that closet last month, I came across a box and wondered what was in it. I opened it up and this was what I found inside.
God knew that a little girl named Maia would be joining our family - and what little girl wouldn't want to be a fairy princess wearing this sweet tutu. It is in Maia's closet right now - just waiting for her to get home! And I am thankful to God who is faithful always!
