today i have been thinking a lot about what the future of our family will look like. ryan and i have been praying for several months now on what the next step will be and when we will take it (God willing). i keep finding myself coming back to Jeremiah 29:11 -

"For I know the plans I have for you', declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

i am so glad to know that He already knows what our tomorrow looks like. He knows exactly how many kids we'll have, their names and even the crap they'll do to get on our nerves. unfortunately, i am a major worrier and planner so i naturally like to have everything worked out a long time in advanced. BUT, as i'm learning more and more, life just does not work that way!! in many ways though, i am so glad that i'm not the one planning my life because i could not have dreamed up some of the things that have happened. i believe strongly in the power of prayer and am just waiting and praying for God to give us the direction He would have our family go. who knows what's in store (well, besides God)...not me but i can't wait to find out!!!!!
