Blissfully Unaware

This time last year we were cruising the Caribbean
 with our friends, completely unaware that God was about to flip
our world upside down with a journey of adoption from Ethiopia! 
Ever read something and thought to yourself, "Man, I wish I could write that well! That's exactly what I would say... except it wouldn't sound nearly as cool!"?

Here's just that .... a post by Heather Hendrick that I read the other day and can't seem to get off my mind. I feel like while her story is different than mine, the overall gist of it screams my heart and what I wish I could put into words!

So instead of trying to put my own twist on the same thought (and not doing it nearly enough justice)... I'll just let you read her post and simply say, "Agreed!".

But just in case you don't venture over to her blog to read it for yourself (which I simply think would be a shame), let me leave you with her well put wish for all for 2011- that again, I couldn't have worded better and is my wish for all that read our blog as well...

In this moment...
Blissfully unaware that we would ever adopt our second child
OR that we would experience God's presence in our lives
like never before... I'm learning to LOVE the unexpected!
For this upcoming 2011: 

"May it be unexpected. Richly and wildly unexpected. May God write fantastic words into your story this year. Words that would terrify you if you heard them today... words He is powerful enough to speak into existence and powerful enough to sustain."
