Psalm one hundred and thirty nine

This was my prayer on February 9th
when we saw ShayleeJoy's face for the first time.

And now as we leave today I am reminded
of God's providence through this same Psalm.
It will be in my heart as we hold SJ for the first time
August 29, 2010...
Our Forever ShayleeJoy JingJing Day!!!

Thank you all for your prayers as we travel,
for the girls as they wait at home,
for every person we will meet and pass,
for our family as we become 8 (Josh too),
for ShayleeJoy as she comes to our family,
and for God to be exalted in ALL we do!!!
Bless His Name in ALL the Earth~
especially in China!!!


  1. Oh she is just precious - what a wonderful psalm to carry in your heart as you go to the ends of the earth for your sweet ShayleeJoy!

    You will sing a new song and He will sing it through you to SJ- that is so awesome!!
