8 Things I look forward too...

~~~ Heaven.

~~~ When we become the legal adoptive parents of our five Ugandan children--right now we are legal guardians so they still are not US citizens with our last name.

~~~ When all my kids are following wholeheartedly after Jesus Christ!

~~~ Visiting Oregon in the fall.

~~~ Sitting down with a good cup of coffee and long time friends.

~~~ Becoming a gentle and quiet pastor's wife.

~~~ Being less in battle with the flesh.

~~~ More kids!

8 Things I did yesterday...

~~~ Awakened out of a lovely deep slumber by a three year old saying, "mommy, please come wipe me."

~~~ Drank yummy Ugandan coffee.

~~~ Had "M" day with the little ones, M is for Mop.

~~~ Went to see the probation/social welfare officer, again!

~~~ Made Indian food for friends that we had over for dinner--Beef Curry, lentils, sweet lassies, papadon and cardamon cookies.

~~~ Played "the one legged kangaroo" with my kids. I made it up.

~~~ Added to the mound of clean laundry laying on my bed.

~~~ Enjoyed the lovely Ugandan sunshine.

8 Things I wish I could do...

~~~ Walk in the Spirit, all the time.

~~~ Become mommy to five more orphans.

~~~ Play the guitar, for real.

~~~ Be transported to Oregon, to be with family, whenever it is a holiday.

~~~ Make sure that all the orphans in the world would find loving, Christian homes.

~~~ Raise my kids on a farm.

~~~ Gain weight.

~~~ Know that my children's names will be written in the "Lamb's Book of Life."

8 Shows I watch...

*We do not have a TV so I will share movies.

~~~ The Last Sin Eater

~~~ All the Love Comes Softly movies.

~~~ August Rush (I just saw this and loved it, despite the mistake his parents made)

~~~ Anne of Green Gables

~~~ Fireproof

~~~ Nacho Libre' (call me a nut)

~~~ The Nativity Story

Oh my goodness, I totally forgot about the Love Comes Softly movies--I LOVED all three. And August Rush--brilliant!

So, we both want to live on a farm and adopt all the orphans in the world :):):) We have much in common, friend!
