“Not Home Yet”

Apr 21, 2018

We have begun the process of foster classes through the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home.  It has definitely been an eye opening experience.  As we are learning a lot about what other families go through, we are also learning a lot about our family in the process.   It is such a reminder that this home on Earth is not permanent but leaves us longing for our forever Home with Christ.  It reminds me of the song by Building 429 “Where I Belong.”  My hope is that whomever the Lord allows to be a part of our family, ultimately we will point them to their forever home.

Our Children are very excited at the opportunity to give another child a safe place to stay.  The boys want another boy, and the girls are pushing for a girl.  I know this will be an opportunity for them to look outside themselves to needs of others.  I pray the Lord will use us as a family to bless another family and share the love of Christ with them.

Josh is most excited about foster care because “we will get another child to play with.”

Kathryn is excited about “getting a new child, and hoping it will be a girl.”

Caleb is hoping that “we will get a baby boy.”

Lydia is excited about “being a big sister not just a little sister.”

Bryce is most excited “about having someone else to play with.”

We hope that every child that enters our home will know that they are loved but most importantly that they are loved by Jesus.

“Sometimes it feels like I’m watching from the outside
Sometimes it feels like I’m breathing, but am I alive?
I will keep searching for answers that aren’t here to find
All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong
So when the walls come falling down on me
And when I’m lost in the current of a raging sea
I have this blessed assurance holding me
All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong
When the earth shakes
I wanna be found in you
When the lights fade
I wanna be found in you
All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong
All I know is I’m not home yet
This is not where I belong
Take this world and give me Jesus
This is not where I belong
Where I belong
where I belong
Where I belong
where I belong”
