A new tea set

It sounds so funny now, but deciding to adopt through the foster care system four years ago was one of the scariest things I've ever done.  I was scared of the big needs our child might have, scared of "the state", and scared of what it might mean for our family.  But it was so obvious over that summer of 2012 that God wanted us to adopt through foster care, so, in August we said "yes, Lord," and sent in our application.  Even though it seemed so scary, adopting through foster care has been the biggest blessing in our lives since then, because God gave us our little Miss E.
She doesn't look too scary, does she?  (:
God knows what he's doing, and if he is asking you to do something out of your comfort zone, don't hesitate to say "yes"!  He is always good, all the time, no matter if what he asks you to do ends up being extremely hard or easier than you thought.

Now for our tea time!  A couple weeks ago Miss E's foster mother, (who is amazing), stopped by to give Miss E a birthday gift- a beautiful blue tea set!  We decided to try it out in our secret garden, since the daffodils and grape hyacinths were blooming so beautifully.
We had a lovely time, the weather was beautiful, not as windy as it has been!

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.
Jeremiah 29:11

I hope spring is popping up wherever you live as well!

  1. I'm glad there are folks like you who are lead of the Lord to give children a home. I know they are all little blessings because children are. The tea set is very cute and your snack looks delicious! I love the photos of your garden and Jeremiah 29:11 is one of my favourite verses. Thank you for sharing and linking up with me today. Happy April!


  2. Little Miss E is an absolute doll, and very blessed to have you in her life, I am sure. Your setting is lovely!


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love hearing from you.
