Showers of Blessing


 I just want to take a moment in the midst of all of our waiting for a judge far far away to make the most important decision of our lives to say, that God is quietly showering us with blessings in our time of waiting.

     As many of you know, we thought we had just about raised EVERYTHING we needed for our trip.  When we had to come home without Aaron it was like a sock in the gut on a lot of levels.   The financial level seemed big.  But people have responded.  Yesterday, from EUROPE, Georgia, North Carolina and Maryland and from my own two wonderful nieces who gave us their babysitting money from the summer  - we were overwhelmed with donations for Aaron.  Apart from my nieces, we don't know the people who so willingly opened their pocketbooks.  Unbelievable. 

This morning I wake to find another donation FROM CALIFORNIA!  Again from an unknown family.  Our little thermometer is again rising.  Yes we still have a ways to go but people - in the midst of all the worry - God has again taken the lead and has made it clear  that He has carried us this far financially and He is going to see us through. 

     In the course of this adoption - we have received gifts for Aaron from INDONESIA to HAWAII.  We have had donations from Asia, Europe, Africa and North America.  We have been blessed from sea to shining sea in our wonderful country!  You honestly can't get much better than that!  Across the globe over 550 people have rallied behind our adoption and the number keeps growing. 

    We just want all of our donors to know this.... EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO HAS GIVEN 1.00 OR 5,000 DOLLARS TO LOVE AARON HOME - Every single name will be put on Aaron's puzzle.  The border around the puzzle is going to have all the names of the people who are even today donating for him.

 I'm crying as I write this because I am stunned, amazed and in awe of the way that God, in the midst of such a difficult time for both Rob and me, is showering us with His loving care in such a tangible way.  

There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.

Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy-drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

There shall be showers of blessing,
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.

There shall be showers of blessing;
Send them upon us, O Lord;
Grant to us now a refreshing,
Come, and now honor Thy Word.

There shall be showers of blessing:
Oh, that today they might fall,
Now as to God we’re confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!

There shall be showers of blessing,
If we but trust and obey;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
If we let God have His way.


  1. Just came across u'r blog. I'm deeply touched by how God is using you. Thinking of the scripture of not knowing when you may entertain an angel & not know it. God is using you as Aron's angel. Thank you for humbling me today. So glad I found ur site & will pray for & with you. XX Our God is so good.

  2. So grateful to know that the Lord is providing both the finances and the encouragement that your hearts need! I second the anonymous comment above--God is using you and love one of His precious orphans! May you not give up hope as He continues to move in His own mysterious ways.

  3. We are praying for you. We know that God loves His children and that He is watching over Aaron while you are apart. We are praying that the time is now very short when Aaron will officially have a new last name, a new country, and a new home with many people that love him and have prayed for him. God is faithful. Praise Him!


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
