I took in these 3 extra kids 6 months because I knew God was calling me/us to do so.
I believe Steve and I were being obedient to God's call on our lives.
I've been called crazy.
Told I ruined my life and career, if that's what you can call my 18 months as a bridal consultant.
I've been criticised,
I've made mistakes, said things better left unsaid.
I cooked enough food to feed a small army,
I've felt so full of energy and love,
I've been exhausted and wanted to give up.
I've tried my best to really look to God through all of this and just keep on.
As the time with the older kids comes to an end (looks like reunification will occur before school begin s in the fall) Steve and I both wonder what more can come from this experience.
Are we called to be foster parents?
For now I am simply trying to rely on my Savior to guide me,
looking to Him to help me live fully for Him.
Recently a few blogs and books have come across my path and got my mind thinking. 7 by Jen Hatmaker has me thinking the most. Live simple. Live with less excess. How would this look at the Span Ranch.
I'll keep you posted.
