Such Blessings

Yesterday, our three allowed checked bags were filled to capacity.  We were done.


But as I learned today....He wasn't done.

Is He ever done pouring out blessings?

A neighbor had two large bags full of beautiful children's clothes for us to take with us but at the time, we didn't have room.  Then today, another generous friend gave us our final, unexpected donation, allowing us to pay the fee for an additional checked bag. which easily held all the donated clothes.

So beautiful.

And in addition to that, there was one thing on our list that I just couldn't get my hands on no matter how hard I tried.  There was a particular type of  nebulizer that the orphanage was in need of that I just couldn't seem to find.

I asked everyone.

Anyone who might be a pulmonologist.
Anyone who might know a pulmonologist.
Anyone who has ever driven by a pulmonologist's office.


But it just wasn't happening.

Every night we prayed.
And little Lia prayed the hardest.
She really wanted her mommy to be able to take those babies their medicine.

But it didn't look like it would happen.

Until today..

when I arrived home to find a bag of the nebulizer on my front porch delivered by another generous compassionate friend who went above and beyond to get that nebulizer for us.

What blessings.
What answers to so many prayers.

And really, I don't think He's done yet.


  1. Awesome! We'll be praying for you tomorrow!!!

  2. Praise God!! What an incredible story this has turned out to be!!

  3. I am just amazed at this whole story - How a major inconvenience traveling home last year has turned into the BIGGEST blessing for others!
    I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers for safe travels and a week filled with God's blessings.

  4. I will be praying for you - have a wonderful trip and take lots of pictures!!!!!
