Well, after lots of rounds with the insurance, they finally conceded to insure our adopted child!!! Although I will be a little skeptical until we receive the paper in our hands telling us so!!! But by phone, they did agree to it! So that is another obstacle that is hopefully handled!
I really wanted to talk about what I have been reading this week! We think of Esther as such a hero in the Bible. She was brave, selfless, and beautiful! But she was also an orphan. Her cousin, Mordecai took her to raise when her parents died. She had no father or mother. But she had the love of a cousin who was willing to give her a life that she could be proud of! And she lived a life of character pleasing to God! This is SUCH an example to me of God having a plan for the lives of his people! Here is Esther, an orphan, who becomes the Queen who rules over 127 provinces, risks her life to save God's people, and shows us that we can be women of courage and faith in God! That we can do wonders here on earth to help God's children if only we can have the faith that HE is in control of our lives and has a plan for us! He used Esther and her circumstances to accomplish His purpose, and He can use us too if only we will give ourselves over to Him! Pray for the hearts of all God's people to reach out to the orphans of this world just like Mordecai did!
