comfort shopping and ladybugs

Sometimes you just need to do something to clear your mind and relax. That's what we did yesterday when Colin picked me up early from work. We even ordered two baby gates, so it wasn't all frivolous spending! Our little Lilah is going to look so sweet in this outfit; children's clothes are adorable. This little skirt reminds me of a ladybug, albeit a reversed one! Ladybugs are a universal sign of good luck, especially in the China adoption world. You can read more about it here. I don't believe in luck myself, but I do believe that the Lord has blessed us beyond measure. I also know that some day soon the pain of waiting will be behind us, and we will be saying, she was so worth the wait!

The Ladybug

When strolling through the garden
You should chance to see
A ladybug out walking
Please say 'Hi!' for me.
For a ladybug is a good bug
And she helps the garden grow,
She's supposed to bring good luck
So be sure to say 'Hello!'

  1. Worth the wait. This is very true.
    Lilah Grace is becoming more dear to us as each day passes. Glad you went shopping! Just love the outfit, she will look so cute in it. Another verse to keep you both going.

    His love has no limit, His grace has no measure,
    His power no boundary known unto men,
    For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
    He giveth and giveth and giveth again.

    Love, Grace, Power = He Giveth.
