See for yourself


Does anyone know this man or his beautiful handsome son?
My sweet friend Joy Portis; Blessed, shared this and it so blessed my heart. I have been feeling anxious , what a flood of God's love this brought to me. You see how much this dad loves his boy. God feels the same way about you (and me). Get your mind around that my friend!
*******************************
I am taking a blogging break. I'd love prayer, we are #21 on our agencies list now. I really need a time of refreshing, I am way spent.
I am going to take some time to listen to God. I certainly covet your prayers.

My sweet Kimmie,
I think of you often and pray for you always. I've seen that video before and I'm always amazed and crying at the end of it.

Love,
Julie

Praying for your time with the Father- that you would hear his voice clearly, feeling His Spirit's presence and would be filled with Fresh Oil!

I've seen their videos many, many times and I cry everytime. That daddy is a hero. When he crossed the finish line, his eyes were on his son, and nobody else....there was no pride, only happiness at the joy it brought his son.

Here's their website. (Dick and Rick Hoyt.)

Praying for you, dear Sister, as God shapes and molds you during this challenging time. He will bear fruit and show you Himself. He is faithful.

Hi Kimmie, While we will miss you it's good to take a break and listen to our Heavenly Father! I will be praying for you and your sweet family.

Oh, and you asked about our dogs name the other day. Wensleydale is a type of english cheese. Our dog is an english bulldog and my husband has an obsession with cheese so....

But we usually call her Woo or Precious! She's not spoiled either. Okay, I can't lie....she is spoiled rotten, but actually behaves very well!

So deeply touching. I will keep you in my prayers. Take it easy :)

Shawnda said...

#21!!!! Praying for you on your break! I look forward to how the Lord will speak to your heart! I was moved by something similar this morning during church. Powerful!

Renata said...

Oh Kimmie,
I am definitely praying for you. I will pray that this time is refreshing & a time of reflecting & that you draw closer to our Heavenly Father. I'll miss you on your break - hurry back soon (but take as long as you need)!
love
Renata :)

Blogging breaks are so needed! I hope that you are able to find refreshment and direction!

Velvia said...

Hi Kimmie!
I stopped by to catch up on your blog, I've missed reading it! I had to take an unexpected blogging break due to a nasty computer virus.

So glad to hear you're now #21, that's very exciting. I pray you enjoy your blogging break and come back refreshed. You encourage me every time I read your blog!
Love, Velvia

Praying for you sweet friend.

I have seen video of them together before, but that one, coupled with that beautiful song, moved me to tears.

I'll include you in my prayers, Kimmie. Rest in the Lord. In your weakness, He is made strong. :-)

Pura said...

I have seen this video before but it's a very touching one ... a reflection of God - God will never give up on us, never -
May God answer your prayers and lift you up.

That was an amazing and powerful video. Thanks for posting it.

Still praying for swiftness in the adoption process! I know that your rest will refresh you, but I'll miss you.

Renata said...

I just need to add, I have now watched this video about 6 times & cried my eyes out every time - I have shown my hubby, my sister etc - it is very moving.
I hope & pray you are going well, Kimmie - we miss you here in bloggy world, but understand you need a break.
Renata :)

You are officially on my prayer list.

I loved the video almost as much as I loved your comment on the site. Thank you so much.

Blessings!

I will continue to pray for you Kimmie.

I loved the video. I was a slobbering mess by the end.

Sniz said...

I haven't been here for a while, Kimmie, but woo-hoo for being # 21!!! I know that's such an answer to prayers!!

I've seen this video before and I seriously cry like a baby all the way through it. I think it is one of the most powerful things I have ever seen.

Be well friend, Sniz

I pray God is blessing your heart and giving you a time of refreshment. I hate I haven't been by in a while. I have enjoyed catching up on your posts.

I saw your comment on the Ukraine Train and came right over to see your blog. Your family is just beautiful and I am so happy to hear about your newest adoption plans.
I have a blog called No Place Like Home and I would love to link you as an advocate if you think you would be interested in helping other families who are just starting out in international adoption.
Pleae let me know.
