Good Morning...........Thank you!

Hello sweet and precious ladies, 

It is 5 in the morning and I can't sleep. Right now at this time J and T are meeting with the director. Please pray that God would soften heart of this person.  I have just asked my God who is above all other gods to please touch this person's heart when they see J and T and their love for V. They do not think like Americans. I know God is hearing this Momma's plea. I can put my complete confidence in HIM! What a precious gift He has given us in prayer. Right now J, T and V have lots of college students, and over 150 men who are a part of J's life praying for them, plus you ladies.....totally amazing. One of the men asked the men to set their watches to remind them throughout the day to pray! I like that! I am overwhelmed with the kindness and yes praying is kindness, that has been shown to our fam at this time.  

J sent this pic........said it reminded him of his Mom........God is working in our son's life. Preciousness.

I keep waking up early........can't sleep. There are so many heavy things going on. J and T are meeting right now with the director. God is giving me scripture to pray which is taking on new meaning for us. Isaiah 61 says...........
The Sprit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives (means to be taken alive and made a prisoner of war) and release from darkness for the prisoners...........

We have been asking God to open the Red Sea.........and that He would give clear passage for V to walk through in complete freedom. I can picture in my mind God doing this just as He did for Moses. Asking that He would push all hinderances aside. He says He loves the orphan.....I believe Him!

My sweet man sent an email out to over 150 men this morning........this is what he asked and it was so profound to me. 
There are still many hurdles to clear and the path is uncertain, except to God. He knows the way. Ask that He will show it to J, T and to V.

God of Israel our helper He is mighty, Our Defender. Jesus you are high and lifted up. One day All the World will praise your Great Name! Thank you Lord for speaking to this Momma heart this morning. 

Welcome new have been me!!!!!!!

Have to get ready to serve at the college.

Hugs to your day! 


  1. Hi Linda! I've been praying for this adoption. Praying that Nina's heart would be softened. God has already gone before them, and He's already prepared the way.

  2. Linda~ I haven't stopped praying in months since V went back.Don't worry God is on your family side.Yes the devil sneaks in but thats what we are all here for to help with gaurding your hug to you!~Amy
    Ps you always brighten my day.

  3. Standing in agreement that the Red Sea would, indeed, be parted by the VICTORIOUS ONE...who is FAR ABOVE any other rule, power, dominion, and authority.... and V. will be walking through soon, and very soon.

    Hallelujah to the Lamb!!!

    Blessings and love,


  4. Standing in agreement with you all, Linda. God "is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think." Ephesians 3:20
    Can't wait to see V home with your family.

  6. Love the picture Josh sent....I can see why it reminded him of YOU!

    Want you to read my blog today! I thought of you while I was writing it...(I know you are busy...still ;) )

    "If God be for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31

    Been praying through the night and morning...I know God is working!!!

    Love you!

  7. My prayers are with all of you. With God all things are possible. Hoping you all are all united as a family very soon.

  8. Linda,
    It is all so exciting :) Can't wait to hear all of the stories J,T,and V will have to tell when they get HOME. A home filled with love that Vitaliy will soak up like a sponge.
    Praying every day.


  9. Oh Linda! I had your family on my heart when I woke up today! I looked at my picture of Christ hanging on my wall and prayed for the family. I hope V will come home to be a part of your family very soon. I do not understand why everywhere they hate Americans! I pray about that too! God Bless your precious hubby. What a warrior of prayer for the Lord! Amazing all the prayers going out! Love Anne

  10. Dear sweet Linda,
    I have missed you! I am heading over to email you right now!!
    Love and hugs,

  11. I have been keeping up with your story, and want you to know I have been praying for you and your family, your love for God, family and people just shows forth from your pages..

  12. Please read this before you delete it. I am a Pagan, and believe in the power of the Earth and the Universe. but isn't that the same belief you have in God? It's a higher, loving, Grace. I am sending all my beliefs, blessings and hopes that the adoption goes well. We maybe different, bur what is God? I believe in a higher being, I'm just not so sure that he's the old man sitting in Heaven. i'm more inclined to the Earth being in charge, but with help from above. Does that make any sense? Please don't write me off as being wiered. I think our 'Gods' are the same, just reached by different routes. I'm, sincerely sorry if I've offended you. that was never my intention. I would love to 'talk' to you. You can reach me on
    Blessings from the UK
