One of These Days...

One of these days, I will get to sit down and write an entry about something! For now, I can just say that Adam made it home safely from Uganda, he had the time of his life, God solidified our decision about the future, and everyone has enjoyed having him back at home. One really quick, sweet story...Sebastian is my sensitive, artistic child. Anyone who has spent a little time with him can vouch for that. Anyway, he was the one who I thought would have the hardest time with Adam being gone. But, the nine days pretty much went by without a hitch. So, Saturday Adam got home and he was giving out the presents and Sebastian burst into tears and ran into his room. I followed him to see what was wrong and he said, "I just want to be in here and cry." So I left him to be alone. Adam finished giving out the presents and then went into Sebastian's room and shut the door. When Adam got in there, Sebastian threw his arms around his Daddy's neck crying and said, "Why did you have to be gone so long? It was too long!" So, then they cried together for a few minutes and Adam just held him. Then he was fine and came out to see his presents. It was so sweet. He is so precious.

Oh my goodness you made me cry. That is so very sweet. It also made me remember holding that precious child! I am praying for you guys as God prepares each of you for your next adventure.

Such a sweet story and how great it would be to have the heart of a child.... So glad Adam made it back and I know he is glad to be back home.
