Love Birds

"Look at the birds of the air...
are you not worth much more than they?"
~Matthew~

I'm amazed at how He cares for us.  He provides day in and day out.  In big and small ways.  We've seen the pieces of a quite intricate puzzle come together so perfectly in the last 8 weeks or so.  EIGHT WEEKS!!!! That's how long is been since Josh began talks with the university.  Now, we have Visas and plane tickets!  Move out dates and packed bags!  For the first time in a loooooooong time, we can make plans...BIG THINGS, I tell ya!

But what about the little things--the birds of the air?  Yeppers!  He takes care of those too!

You see, since before we left China, Tegan has been asking for 2 parakeets.  We told him that when we return to China, if he is still interested, he could get them.  After all, it's good for a 9 year old boy getting ready to leave his current life behind for a move across the world to have something to look forward to.

For the last year, he's been researching how to care for parakeets.  He's been brainstorming names for them.  I suggested "Keet" and "Keet" so he'd have a "pair o' keets", but he was not impressed and insists on naming them himself.  He's pretty excited about his birds.

Just yesterday, we heard from a friend in Changsha.  Their family was gifted a pair of love birds, and they have been hoping to find a family to take them.  They heard about Tegan's plan and asked if he would like to adopt the pair.  As he researched the difference between parakeets and love birds, Tegan found that love birds are "way cooler" than parakeets.

He cares for all the little things!  Yes, He cares for the (love)birds, but He also cares for the desires of my young boy's heart.  In all of it, He is faithful.

The two boys are the current owners and the girls are the ones who gave it to them.

Tegan, we think you are the perfect guy to adopt our lovebirds. Thank you so much. You can take them home as soon as you like.
