Hello Summer.... Amy (Hester) Knudson told me about your blog. I knew you a little in high school... my maiden name is Burt. I am so moved by your openness to the gift of life. Our world seems so full of those who would put limits on the boundless beauty of God's creation. I am encouraged that you seek to break those limits and let our increadibly Huge God be the designer and creator of your family. It's no small thing! My husband and I are actually praying right now about adopting twin 9 year old girls from the Congo. A man from our church just went on mission there and his heart leapt in meeting them with a cry for us. We have, as yet, been unable to conceive children yet the Lord has blessed us, throught adoption, with our darling son John Paul. Our desire is open our lives, our hearts, our home, and our family to life in whatever way the Lord calls us to receive Him. For whomever receives one such as this... receives me. It's who I want to be, who he created me to be...his obedient, beloved daughter. Thank you for your yes to our Lord, it gives me strength to say my own yes in my life. His light shines through you, what a grace! May the sweetest blessings of the Lord be upon you and your precious family... The Joy of the Lord is Strength, Jocelyn Mainard

Jocelyn, I remember you, of course! I went to your blog but found no way to leave a comment--hopefully you find this. What is your email address as I would love to encourage you as the Lord has encouraged me. Be willing to be a vessel for the Lord and lead a life filled with the Spirit.
