E and A

Though many of you already know by now...I'll announce officially that we have two new members of our family.  E and A came home March 12, when they were just 2 weeks old.  They are a month old now, and we, of course, have fallen in love with them.  I haven't blogged about them because #1...newborn twins don't leave much time for bloggin'! and #2 my heart is so full of emotions that I didn't, and still don't, know how to capture with mere words.  So for now, I'm sticking with the facts...E and A are precious beyond belief...a little boy and a little girl...they keep us up at all hours of the night, and they bring us such amazing joy.  The older 4 children have been troopers...not once have I heard a complaint.  They are protective of E and A, and watch over them like hawks.  We do not know how long E and A will be in our home. But while they are here we are loving them as if they will be here forever.  And I am learning to trust Jesus in  new and painful ways. Since they have been with us, I have not made it through a worship service without shedding tears.   I would move heaven and earth on their behalf if I could, and yet my hands are tied...I can do nothing but wait for the courts to decide. My Heavenly Father knows the future, He knows what is best for our babies, and that has to be enough for me. So we wait, and we love them, and we treasure each moment...and I learn again each day to trust our King, for they are His more than they ever will be mine, no matter what the court decides.
