Life hasn't stopped though.
I've been to Kenya and back - awesome - amazing time.
Also, I currently have members of a Christian rock band (and wives!) sleeping on my pull-out sofa and in my guest room this week. Their housing fell through at the last minute and since I currently don't have any foster kids, I could open up my home to the folks of Willet. They play at Crosspoint tonight and it's been fun hosting them the past couple of days - it's not everyday you can say that you have a band sleeping on your couch! They're great people and they have an AMAZING heart for service. Great people, check them out - their song, "You are not just holy" is one of my favorites. You can give it a listen on their website and see some of the awesome ministries they have started.
That said, I AM thankful that God has been giving me many opportunities to use my house to bless people before I have foster children. I know God is using this time to shape me into the Mom I need to be for whatever children He has for me to care for - just pray that I can have patience!!
