All-Generous: And Blessed
For God is sheer beauty,
all-generous in love,
loyal always and ever.
Psalm 100:5, The Message
I've heard from Grandma Debby several times. This was a highlight:
"Tegegne wants to tell Ababayeh that he's running to train to be a policeman. You'll never believe how far he ran. The whole path of the back 40 (acres) and half of the front 40. We're following behind him very slowly in the Gator. Hensley loves cheering him on."
This message came before 9am the next morning:
"Tegegne's out running again! Stopped to catch a grass hopper, and off again!"
And some more shout outs to my peeps:
Thanks Aunt Donna, for taking another Trader Joes order!
Thanks Tara for dinner last night.
Thanks Cela for the visit this morning.
Thanks Jan for hanging out this afternoon.
Plus all of the dear folks that have made us meals and that are signing up to do so.
Blessed, I feel so blessed by God through all of you generous folks. We are so grateful. Thank you for taking care of our family. We love you.
Fields, we are now hours away from meeting you rather than days. Sweet anticipation. Your dad and I were talking about our anticipation when we met your brother, Tegegne. This is the same feeling, but quite different. You see, when meeting your brother we were in a foreign land in the back of a bus. We pulled up to this orphanage and knew he was inside. We wondered if he understood that he would meet us and we would be his parents. We sat in small chairs as we waited for our names to be called. Then they called us. We stood and watched as your cute big brother walked in those little black boots out to our arms. And we were smitten. Just as we will be when you are placed in our arms tomorrow. See you in the am baby boy.
