On the Journey With My Chosen One!

I am sure you might wonder why I call her chosen rather than adopted.... well, adopted is just her physical condition, CHOSEN is what we both are to be a family together! God is so rich in His Blessings, and He has chosen each of us from before the time we were knit in our mother's womb to be a FOREVER family! How BIG is that? How BIG is our God!?! Thank you for following our journey and for praying for us as we wait and continue to grow in the love of God! -- Blessings!

Liliana's Verses

Matthew 17:20 - " ... For truly I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain: "Move from here to there", and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you."

Zephaniah 3:17 - The Lord your God is with you. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.

Proverbs 3:5-6 ~ Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.

Jeremiah 29:11 ~ For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Blessed..... Beyond Measure!

What a wonderful weekend! I got to celebrate One Year with my Precious Peruvian and then celebrate My Risen Lord! He is risen indeed! Celebrating One Year simply reminds me that He came to redeem us! He came that we might have life! He came to work miracles in the lives of sinners like me, to bring about such an incredible blessing! Happy Easter!

We had such a busy but great weekend! For our Blessing Day we went to the Zoo to see the Llamas (well, our zoo only has one) and the elephants and giraffes.... her favorite animals! The Llama was hilarious, he had his back to all the people coming by to see him in the petting zoo... but he did turn around to check us out! She LOVES giraffes and we got to see them up close, she was soooo excited! Later after celebrating a birthday dinner for dear friends, we came home to make Llama cookies. She had so much fun, and even more fun eating her Llama cookies.

Saturday, we participated in her first ever Easter Egg Hunt! We had a great time "finding the Easter Eggs! She also got to see the "Princesses", these are young ladies who serve as ambassadors for our city at city-wide events. She thought they were great! Then we came home for a nap, then a walk with our dog Mia and her "Lady Bug" and stroller. She is soooo funny walking her doll just like Mama walks her in the stroller! Then we dyed Easter eggs, she thought it was great to see them come out a different color!

Then today, we celebrated our Risen Savior at church and then we had dinner with our good hunt Easter eggs again to find what kind of yummy treats they might find! What a blessed day! I am constantly reminded of how much our Savior loves and cares for us everyday! What joy!

Striving to Make His Glory Known!
