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.
