How do you say thank you?…

Jacob and I are really struggling with how to say thank you these days. How do you say “thank you” when it means so much?

We are needy right now – In need of money and help and support and encouragement to get our son home.  It’s hard to be needy sometimes… hard to have nothing to contribute except obedience.

But… it’s so good to see how God is working through His church and His people. It’s amazing the love and support we have seen and felt from our closest friends/family to people we have never met.

God is amazing and His love towards us is GREAT (Psalm 86)! He uses His people and His church to love on those He calls…
Family/friends giving sacrificially…
Strangers buying clocks…
People we’ve only heard about featuring us on their website… LoveGodFearNothing
A church in our area taking our adoption on as their Fall/Winter mission, videoing our journey…
Our parents working tirelessly with us to build clocks…
A church we know and love hosting a yard sale for us…
Our sister-in-law doing a jewelry party as a fundraiser…
Prayer warriors battling for us and Eric…
Opportunities to share our story with so many people…

And all we can offer is a simple “thank you”… but we feel so much more. “Thank you” doesn’t come close to the true appreciation, humbleness, and gratefulness we feel.

We are in awe of God and His great love towards us.  We are in awe of people and their kindness.

So… know that a “Thank you” is what we can say… but our hearts and lives will never be the same because of this adventure… because of your love… support… encouragement… prayers… and help.

Let’s get Eric home!

Eric is a loved boy and we are so grateful!
