I'm not necessarily sad to be back at work today, but it's hard getting back into the swing of things today after waking up yesterday to the sound of water gently crashing on the shore. We had a fabulous time in Hot Springs, renting a houseboat and just taking it easy for a few days by sunning, getting facials, and relaxing in the hot tub.
In a whole new topic, please pray for our friends, Casey and Kate, who are traveling TODAY to the Ukraine to adopt a child (or children). Visit their blog by clicking HERE. They have luckily had a lot of media coverage, so you can read the stories and see the videos, too. They will be going through files of children and choosing their own at 2 p.m. CST Aug. 5. This obviously is a very nerve-wracking process, so keep them in your prayers. Casey and Kate and their daughter Chandler are such wonderful, compassionate people, and pray that God gives them peace as they welcome their new child into the family.
