NOT 7-31-09

Today we heard news that we will not make it through court tomorrow. MOWA is requesting another document. We pretty much thought that after 15 months of searching out documents that we had everything. No. Gladney will go to court tomorrow with the plan of getting a new court date. Not sure when new court date can be expected or how long this additional document may take to get. We anticipate a call from Jessica with an update tomorrow.

We are so stinkin’ frustrated and terribly terribly disappointed.
We thought we actually had a chance this time. We thought wrong…

Hearts broken again,
smj out

So we do not lose heart. Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day. For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure, because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal... 2Corinthians 4:16-18
Love you, Janet

Once again, we're all at a loss for words... what a cruel joke. Hope it doesn't ruin your birthday, sis. Hang in there.

Love and hugs from us to you... see you tomorrow.

Dear Koko,
While we feel like throwing up from todays phone calls - one thing is clear. We will not be defeated. We will not go around acting like every other broken and defeated institution or situation in the world. We will live hopeful and joyful because the victory will be ours in spite of this deep pain today. We will laugh robustly and love more deeply right now. We will not grow weary or calloused by the dysfunction. Koko - we will see you face to face. It is not a matter of if but only of when and we cannot wait for that day. So here is to throwing up and then diving more deeply into life through moving forward. Standing in there while dreaming about our future with you.
Your daddy

A part of me wants to cry, but then I think about how strong you two have become and then I catch my breath and continue to stand in the gap and pray and confess that GOD is opening a door that no one can shut!

So, this morning, I sing a song of trust, of hope and of Victory for you all and for your child!

Mark and Heidi said...

Oh, no, this all seems so unfair. I am praying that this means you are one step closer and that this is all behind you in a week or two.
