If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

1 More Week- Let the Worrying Begin (or not)

Well I leave for Haiti in one week so this worrier is starting to make her mental list. I know what you are thinking...my worries aren't from God...I should cast all my cares upon Him...Greater is He is who is in me...He who has called me is Faithful...Lay all my cares at His feet. I KNOW!

I am telling myself all those things, but I am leaving the 4 most important people in my life for 10 days. I have already typed Trent up a schedule and reviewed all "my" rules.
I think that is my problem though. Trent (the most capable man I know) is not going to do it like I do. That is probably why the kids like him so much. :) So as much as I need to trust God, I also need to trust this wonderful husband of mine who is more than capable to handle 10 days by himself with my kids.

I will be posting prayer requests for the trip in a few days and I am hoping to be able to post updates while I am there. In the meantime, you can pray that Trent survives all of my preparations.

I shall be praying for you and I know just how you feel! I was signed up to go to ET Nd Uganda in July and worried about all kids of things. In the end the Lord closed the door because of this huge time of transition we are in and we did not think it would be good for Lydia especially with Jeff traveling all the time! I would still love to go on a missions trip and it has always been a dream of mine but just not yet!!!

I'll be praying for you the whole time!!!

God made Daddies different!! Things happen differently around here when I am just gone for an afternoon. But things do happen! It will be a gift for all of you. My husband is a PT, too. I have loved reading about your taping experiments. God bless you as you travel and serve.

I have been thinking a lot lately about what it looks like to pursue healthy relationships.  Like what if every relationship I was in could...
