Doin' the Texas Two-Step

I grew up in a small town in the panhandle of Texas.  We learned to do the two-step in school PE.  It was a big deal.

Why am I telling you this, you wonder?  I'm prone to ramble.  But, today I have a purpose for my rambling.

We are going to Austin today...and...tomorrow!  That form I mentioned takes 24 hours to come back.  So, Erin and I have to both go today for a zip over (stopping in Giddings for breakfast) fill out the form and zip back (stopping in Giddings for 2nd breakfast)(what, you don't eat 2nd breakfast?). 

I won't be able to apostille until tomorrow.  BUT, Andrea at Reece's Rainbow gave the translators the go-ahead to begin the translation process on our faxed dossier.  That means we made the deadline! 

I am so humbled that the Lord has worked these miracles for us and for Alice Faith.  I had a blog post already written about us not making the deadline and having to start over.  It's not that I'm a pessimist, quite the opposite really.  I just didn't want to be angry or resentful at God for not doing as I had asked.  Because, who am I to ask anything of God?  I want his will-on earth as it is in heaven.  So, I was ready to do as he asked.

But, his plan was for this to happen now!  His plan, as I know it right now, is for us to make the deadline.  I am so honored that he has allowed us miracle.  And, yes, I see this as a miracle.  The money raised, the forms brought in, the timing.  This has his super-natural fingerprints all over it.


  1. Yay! Enjoy your yummy breakfast ( and 2nd breakfast), and have fun in Austin! :)

  2. Here's to second breakfast! Enjoy, and congratulations! Press on!

  3. Second breakfast! Sounds like something a hobbit would do. :-)

  4. We just passed through Giddings Saturday night! I am elated to see this post!! woo-hoo! I hope your 2nd breakfast is as yummy as the 1st!

  5. Ok, so we didn't do 2nd breakfast. We were too full from 1st breakfast! Those are good burritos.
