Five Minute Friday: Plan

This week I'm again participating in Five Minute Fridays at Kate Motaung's blog, (after a long hiatus) encouraging bloggers to write on a prompt unedited for five minutes.  This week's prompt: PLAN

I longed, prayed, and pleaded to know the plan.

I dreamed of my own version of the plan, but over and over I was reminded we didn't know the plan.  It wasn't for us to know yet.

We couldn't have guessed His plan.

Its too amazing, audacious and a bit crazy.

Going from a family of three to a family of five.

Our paperwork ending up on the same social worker's desk multiple times, each time making her think of two particular siblings that needed a forever family.

Meeting our new son and daughter right before Christmas and having them move into our family 5 weeks later.

Each child in the family now only thirteen months apart in age.  Six.  Five.  Four.

A family put together by God.

A plan that only God would have come up with.

He has confirmed it over and over.

For that I'm am thankful.  This journey is laid out by Him not dreamed up by us.

I know He holds the plan.


  1. So beautiful to read about His plan unfolding for your family.It's amazing how often we long for just a glimpse of His plans and then when we see them, we realize they are far greater than anything we could have imagined for ourselves. So glad His plans prevail! Blessed to be your FMF neighbor today.

  2. So happy for you! God's plans often seem crazy to us. But HIS ways are always best. Yielding to His plan puts us on a Divine adventure following Him. Life will not always be easy, but you will always remember this was God's idea, and He makes no mistakes! :-)

    1. Thanks Debbie for you continued prayers and encouraging words. They mean so much to me!
