A message...

So, I get these little 'messages' via an application on my computer daily.
They're from the book 'The Listeners'...
I swear it - God made the application just for me!
It's almost eerie with how accurate the 'word' is every day.
I don't know if it's self-fulfilling prophesy, or if God led me to hear from him in this way.
But EVERY DAY the word is applicable to my day.

Today's word:
"How often, when you little know it, I go before you to prepare the way, to soften a heart here, to override there"

Lord, please let this word be true of you! I'm praying it's true, and that you're softening the hearts of all the people involved in Olive's adoption, Amen.

No new news yet.
No call back from our social worker yet either.

But, our family profile has been set up on the RR site!

Here's what it says:
Karl and Ashley Malefyt are hoping to adopt little Olive from Eastern Europe. We are excited for her, as she has been waiting quite a while!
They had no intentions of adopting internationally being that they are foster parents for the state of Michigan. But God had other plans.
Ashley came across Olive's information on RR and couldn't help but be drawn to her name. Karl and Ashley had planned to adopt from the foster care system and name their next little girl Olivia, and call her Olive. They both felt they would 'know' when God had placed the right child in their home. Little did they know God wouldn't be bringing their child to their home, He would be sending them to her.
Karl and Ashley have two biological children born to them, Ethan age 2, and Evelyn age 1.
They are excited and hope to enjoy the journey of bringing their little girl home. Your financial gifts will be much appreciated!
