God's Provision

How was your weekend?  Ours was pretty good.  As a family we went and saw a matinee of the movie Chimpanzee.  Since we are close to traveling and will be gone for a while, we wanted to do something special with the kids.

The movie was beautifully filmed.  The main character Oscar, is adorable!  Without giving too much away-- he is orphaned and then adopted by the least expected character.
Shown in super fast motion at times the movies seems to literally fly by!
What spoke to me in the movie was the continual provision that could only be orchestrated by God.
The chimps' needs were continually met with one fruit tree after the other having ripe fruit for them to eat.  After one tree's fruit was gone, then another fruit that grows in the water was ready.  And just as that provision was gone, the nut trees came into harvest.  Then the figs were ready.  And then another type of nut and so on.  Rather than be ready all at the same time, each food source came in succession after the other.
Sure times might be tough for the chimps having to hunt for their next food source, but they always had enough.

As I watched the movie, I couldn't help but think of God's provision in this adoption.
He has blessed us through all of you.
He has brought some really amazing people into our lives through this process and I am humbled by the show of support.
Thank you.
As we fast approach the time to travel and meet our two little boys, I have seen our fundraising efforts pick up God's Provision increase to make sure that the boys' ransom is raised.
Two more cookbooks have been sold.  Can you believe that an old friend from the 8th grade bought one? Totally unexpected and such a blessing to reconnect with her through Facebook.

Then there is the special ordered dinosaur bag that was sold.
And another decal was ordered.

And I can't forget the prayers and emails.
They are priceless and an encouragement always.

Thank you so much.
Each day we are a little bit closer.
