Annelise tried out her new swing today and the higher we pushed the swing the louder she squealed with delight. That was a joy to behold. She would open her mouth really wide and let out a giggling squeal. I have a picture of her in her swing and Ellie in the background eating pecans. We discovered last Saturday that we have a pecan tree and this is the first year it is producing. Ellie is happy to take care of the ones that have fallen early. Even the dog had fun today.
We have finalized the plans for our trip to get Qavah, and we leave on Monday. We are investing the day on Friday in prayer for this whole event. We especially pray that Qavah will love the idea of coming home with us and that God will fill her heart with trust as He invites her to step out in faith. We have so much joy in our hearts tonight and it humbles me to think of the good things to come.
