he stays, for now

he’s here.

he’s sleeping.

he fell asleep in my arms as i stood on our front porch and sang to him “Jesus loves me” and “it is well with my soul”.

“and Lord haste the day when my faith shall be sight”

my faith.  Lord, increase my faith.

this world of foster care.  there is so much we cannot share.

we go back to court in about 30 days.  the plan is for custody, for all four children, to be determined that day.

a lot can happen in 30 days.

a lot can go right.

a lot can go wrong.

God already knows.  He’s already there.

and now we know we have at least 30 or so days to continue to love these children out of the love Jesus has for us and they have 30 or so days to still be together.

Jesus, help us do this well.

“The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He does not faint or grow weary;
His understanding is unsearchable.
He gives power to the faint,
and to Him who has no might He increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.”
~isaiah 40:28-31
