Kevin and I have been given 2 awesome opportunities.
He is in India right now. He left on Saturday morning and arrived early this morning. 16 hours on a plane.....after flying to Chicago. And tomorrow, they take another plane. And then a long car ride.
He is privileged to meet 3 amazing little kids we sponsor in a tiny orphanage in Kalimpong, India. One girl in particular, Mina, has been our 'adopted daughter' for 3 years now. We talk about her so often I really do feel like she is going to come home with Kevin. I wouldn't be at all shocked if he walked off the plane with her. She's Lilly's age and has a horribly tragic story of the loss of her parents, unspeakable abuse and finally abandonment.
This sweet little thing......a flower. How does a flower bloom in the darkness?
We've been able to skype her before. She's so beautiful. And so sweet. And Kevin gets to meet her and spend time with her and play with her and show her a little about what a loving father looks like.
Now.....on to my awesome opportunity. I get 11 days with my girls. Just them and me. Well....with school and our regular schedule thrown in. But, still.
I have to admit that I was dreading this. When the calvary doesn't come home at 6:00 each night to give me a break......well......I tend to get cranky. And generally, 4 days is my absolute limit before I become a raging monster. But, its been a full 2 days now and I'm really amazed at the peace I feel. Granted, I did yell at Molly once last night. But, I'm finding myself so looking forward to the next 9 days. I've got plans for us.....some of which just involves a couch and a stack of books.
I know there is a hoard of people praying for Kevin and me. Kevin, because he's in India. Me, because I'm here. And if you believe in what the bible says about spiritual warfare, well......this is the time it really kicks in. So we need all the prayers we can get while God is moving......moving both in India and here, in the Feighery house.
So......I'll keep you posted on how everything plays our with our sweet little flowers on both sides of the world. Prayers are lovingly appreciated!
