"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as member of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Colossians 3:15+17
"Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful." Colossians 4:2
Wow! We have been praying for guidance on the whole paying for our adoption at the same time as we have been praying for our birthmother and our future child.
We have had such an amazing outpouring of love to us and we are so thankful. Some gifts that have come, were totally unexpected and wonderful and no gift is received without us stopping and giving thanks to God for the person/people that sent it. Thank you!
Thank you God for being a God that provides in our weakness and a God who loves in real ways!
We are excited for some upcoming events. We are thinking about hosting a fundraising dinner here on the Cape, still thinking and praying about how/where/when, etc.
Someone also said we should sell shirts, we looked into it and were concerned about the money you had to put out front and how to ship them to people but then I remembered reading the book "Choosing to See" and the agency that the author opened. The group is called Show Hope and they work to help people adopt so I went on their website and we can open a "shop" for our friends and families to buy shirts, they print them and ship them and then we get the profit. So hopefully Feb. 24 will be the day that we can have a new post with how you can buy a nice tee shirt and support our adoption!
We are so thankful for all of you and for all your prayers. We continue to wait for a birthmother to pick us to be parents and we are excited about what God has in store. Please continue to pray for Todd and I and our journey. We have loved going on this journey with God and with all of you! Thank you again for all your support, prayers and love!
Humbly, Meredith and Todd Peters
