So, this little piece of paper fell out of Scott's Bible this afternoon. Well, actually a whole slew of papers fell onto the car floor when A. was perusing through his Bible while we were in the drive through at Starbucks. Anyhoo...I gathered them up and noticed this one in particular. It was from a Young Adult retreat we had helped with 4 years ago (yes, Scott is a bit of a pack rat). I noticed the dates and just an overwhelming flood of memories rushed through my brain. The dates were something like September 19-21, 2003. The little girl in our back seat was only 2 weeks old then. Thousands of miles away in Moscow, Russia. Scott and I were still driving down the fertility treatment road at that time. Yes sir, that was our plan and it was going to work at some point we were sure. God let us continue, but He was already planning something else, something better. Of course, we were clueless. That's how God likes to do things sometimes, right?
By the retreat the following year, Scott and I were preparing to make our trip to meet Nadya, the little 2 week old baby was 13 months old, and she was waiting for us. Thank goodness God thinks bigger and better than we can even imagine.
