I was thinking yesterday that it had been awhile since I had sat down and looked over the list of signs that little G knew. I was shocked to see that the last time I had written in my journal was in November.
How did that happen?
Well I have had two colds, Thanksgiving, little Gs 5th birthday, Christmas, knitting for a friend and family, husbands surgery, moving son from the front room to the back room and alllllll the cleaning involved with that task........
I guess thats how!
In the midst of all the activity we have still been working hard. Little G and I like to do puzzles.( when she first came home she didnt even understand the concept of them) we color and play with shape sorters, feed her baby dolls - learning with plastic food. Oldest son left a CD player so her other brother hooked it up to the speakers so we can now enjoy music in her room. Weve been practicing her letters and their sounds and signs- that has been amazing....... well all of it is mind boggling for me.
As little G napped I went over the lists and counted the signs that she is using in context and came up with a total of 170 signs. She added 62 signs in those two months!
God has a plan for this little one.
Just like he has a plan for each one of us.
I remember reading Jeremiah 29:11-13.....I read this verse often and claimed it for our little G. Not only does he have a plan, which is a life with hope and a future- with Jesus Christ by our side. But he also says that when you call on me, pray, I will hear you......when you seek me with all your heart you will find me.
that is what this is all about.
Not only did we want to give little G a name,
Ways to express her needs/ desires....
We also want to give her a way to express her faith.
We all have that empty place in our hearts that longs for God,
through these words
I believe that
