Happy, Happy, Happy

So - honesty time here. This wait... this ridiculous, long, unnecessary, painful, tearful wait... it just sucks. Flat out sucks. It's caused all kinds of deep discussions, deep prayers, hard cries, heavy hearts and a longing like we've never, ever known before.

We've found ourselves meeting God on a whole new level. Praying intently, praying harder, questioning our prayers and then trying feverishly to turn our prayers into worship and praise. Chasing Him, trying to find any fleeting evidence of His work in our lives and our girl LH3's life. Oh we know He's there... but sometime - not always - but sometimes - it's just so hard to remember that.

And I've said it before and I'll say it again - all of that is why He is God and we are just Tymm and Laura and Meron.

But things are a-changing around here. Yep - we are focusing on being Happy.

Happy, happy, happy.

Laura came home tonight and said these 10 little words:

"We're not going to live our lives on hold anymore!"
I simply can't tell you how big of a deal that is. Coming from her! But she is spot on. And we have been doing that. But we gotta remember - we have a crazy little 3.5 year old here who needs her mom and dad FULLY ENGAGED. So we're going back to that place...

These are huge, critical, important, unique days in the life of Meron. We'll never get 'em back. So we have to live life to the fullest with her. And we have to remember that she is part of this challenge too - she wants "sister" home as much as we do!

Ya heard it here first God - we're done with mopey dopey Hoffman life and we are back to diving into YOU and living life to the fullest! Doesn't mean we aren't praying or want her home any less... means we are turning up the notch on life, prayer and desire and letting God run this thing!

Yep - this is THE END of life on hold!

So good to hear, friends. Good to hear. His grace is sufficient to do this as well.

Oh my goodness, this completely resonates with our hearts in this home as well. It is SO HARD to continue to ache for our little one!! I'm in a worn-out, mopey, will-this-ever-even-happen mood lately, so I have literally begged the Lord for His voice to be heard above the noise....just a sign that He's still "got this". I KNOW He does, and that we will all look back down this road of waiting and see God's hand at every turn...but boy is it hard, as we walk in it. Thanks for this challenge tonight. I needed it. :)
