Good times

Michael and I are in Orlando, waiting to have lunch with some China adopting blogging friends, should be fun!

We just finished our 4th Disney Magic cruise and now we wonder, will this be the last cruise for just Michael and Amy?
A full trip report is promised but I have to tell you, that this Disney Cruise thing makes me tear up each time I get on and off the boat. I am in fact a bit of a sap.

I think we both saw things differently this trip. We went with my family including Owen (almost 3), Seth (5) and Janie (7). Man, those kids rock! They can make me laugh and cry at the same time!!! Thanks Kelly!

We saw kids of all ages and all nationalities. We saw families of all types. I loved it. We saw different types of discipline. Boy, I am actually glad the wait was not as short as We thought, we have a lot to do and think about.

It's kind of fun to wait and listen to hear from God. I would not have thought He would choose a Disney Cruise to once again speak to my heart. I need to learn to be a bit more quiet as I do not want to miss Him talking to me.

I have a peace about our family, about LynnMarie, about the possibility of other children. I will enjoy this wait, I will not fear, I will not become frustrated, I will not get discouraged. I will do my best to keep busy as we wait. You know, when you are out in the ocean, at 6am and its just you and God watching the sun come up, its an incredible feeling to just stand there and talk to Him. It's just awesome. If you do not talk to God on a daily basis, go find a quiet place and just share your heart with Him. It's amazing how and when He will speak to you, but He will. I don't want anyone to miss those moments. They are moments that you sometimes can not put into words,they are that amazing.

So, get quiet, slow down and take the time to listen to our Heavenly Father.

The Christopher family is going to be OKAY!!!!!
