Blogging tips

.Dear Anonymous.

Most of the time when one reads a blog addressing anonymous it is a bad thing, as anonymous commenters are notorious in the blogging world. Well, this time is different.

Dear Anonymous,
Today I awoke sick for the sixth day in a row. I was frustrated and grumpy and just wanted to feel better. Around mid morning I went to our little mailbox and pulled out a business letter envelope. I opened the envelope and while pulling out the contents I almost immediately forgot how lousy I was feeling. However, I will never forget what I found inside. Tucked into a folded typed letter were two money orders totaling $4000.00. That covers a very large portion of our next fees due in just a short time. The letter clearly stated that the person sending the money wants to remain anonymous and that the money is for our adoption, and we honor that.

I just want to thank you, Anonymous, for blessing us in such a huge way. My words will always fall short, and thank you will never be enough. Thank you for being the hands of Jesus to our family, and to the life of our little Ethiopian Prince. What you sacrificed on our behalf is nothing short of amazing. You have played such a huge part in allowing us to bring a special baby into our home. I pray that Jim and I will truly learn from your example and help other families bring children into their forever homes.

These past few weeks I have struggled with insecurities over finances for this adoption, but once again God has shown Himself faithful and has used you this time to do it. Thank you for being sensitive to His leading. Thank you for understanding how precious this life is to us. Your giving truly has eternal rewards, and we are eternally grateful.

Love, Tiffany


And to the Author and Illustrator, the Orchestrator and Creator of life - to the One who owns the cattle on a thousand hills. The One who is knitting our baby into a woman's womb right now, and who loves him the most. Thank you. Why do I ever doubt You? May Your name be praised, may all who watch our journey only see YOU. For this is not about our family, it's not about adoption, or orphans, or our baby boy on the other side of the world - this is for Your glory, for Your fame. This is for and about only You - God. I love you. I am so humbled.

Tiffany, you have no idea what a blessing you have been to me. Both an amazing mother and wife, you are a wonderful encouragement to everyone around you. I have been following your blog for a while and I'm surprised at how much I look forward to reading your updates and am constantly checking for new posts. Following these heartfelt confessions of your life has really shown me what true faith can look like and what I strive to live like as I soon begin my journey as a wife (and hopefully mother!). You are always in my thoughts and prayers, and I cannot wait to see what God has in store for the remainder of this journey for you! Good luck and God Bless.

What an amazing gift. :) I love when the Lord places people in our lives that do things, with no agenda; they just do them to be a blessing.

I can't wait to hear more about your precious little guy! :) Love and Hugs.
