Yes. It's true.
I'm crazy. I'm fickle. I have many blonde moments throughout the day. I don't know which end is up. I've lost my mind and...I've come up with yet another blog.
For three months I tried to be Miss Scarlett on Kaleidoscope. I had the hardest time typing Rainbow Brite instead of PandaGirl and Mister Green just sounds silly. The whole reason for making that blog was due to our pursuing an adoption from Haiti, thus a blog about colors coming together in beauty. Now that THAT door has been closed I just feel weird still hanging out over there. I have missed typing PandaMom. That's WHO I am in The Blogosphere. But, we don't know what the Lord is going to do about adoption. Will we be a family of three or is another child waiting for us somewhere? Hence, the reason for merging the two.
Pandapalooza plus Kaleidoscope.
Cute, confusing, certainly unique.
Thanks for following along...and for changing your link to us!!! ; )
Here is a little something I came up with to describe my family...
Once upon a time there was a cute couple in love.
They married in '92 with Blessing from above.
Setting out to capture their young love dreams
they discovered life is not what it seems.
The plans they'd secured in their joyful heart
slowly began falling apart.
Not with each other--for their love was strong,
but they noticed some things were terribly wrong.
Their eyes were opened to the dark skies they were under
and quickly sought shelter from the lightning and thunder.
The Lord had different plans than they'd made.
His were the best and theirs had to fade.
Part of the journey God knew from the start
would eventually take a piece of their heart.
For a baby to love was part of their plans;
they had no idea what was waiting in His hands.
Their dream of a baby to have and to hold
would not come true--or so they were told.
So many questions tossed to and fro--
Why would this happen? They wanted to know.
Lots of frustration and buckets of tears
were shed by both for more than eight years.
Then one day the Lord's plan He revealed
and all of a sudden it was all so surreal.
'Cross the ocean they soared on a plane contemplating
while in a far eastern town their daughter was waiting
To join the couple who'd prayed for her--
their long curious wait now just a blur.
Suddenly now the two became three
and all were ready for this new journey.
The bride and the groom and the baby so sweet
flew from China to Texas and now were complete.
Their home, of course, has bits of strife
and joys galore: all part of this life.
God has faithfully blessed this family so deep--
but is there more room in their little black Jeep?
For one more child to call their own,
they seek the Lord's heart at the foot of His throne.
No matter the answer He chooses to give,
this family of three has a great life to live.
The most prominent sound from them is laughter.
For they know they will live happily ever after.
