More Than Enough!

I have been reminded in my time with God in the mornings lately that He is all that we need! If I have Him, I have everything!!! He is MORE THAN ENOUGH. This is what I have been centering my mind on these last few days :)

"And God is able to give you more than you need, so that you will always have all you need for yourselves and more than enough for every good cause." 2 Corinthians 9:8

Genesis 17:1~ "I am God Almighty."  Hebrew word for God Almighty is El Shaddai which means All-sufficient One, more than enough

We leave in 2 Days!!!

Here is our tentative schedule ~

Thursday, March 7: 
2:00 PM   ~ Drive to SF, eat dinner with our friends Ben and Alese :)
11:05 PM ~ Fly to Hong Kong (15 hour flight)  ;)

Saturday, March 9:
6:00 AM~ Arrive in Hong Kong (They are 16 hours ahead of California and our flight is 15 hours so it's like we skip Friday)
We will spend the night Saturday in HK

Sunday, March 10:
1:00 PM ~ Take 2 hour train ride to Guangzhou (it will be 75-78 degrees while we are there) ;)
We will meet our guide, Rebecca and she will take us to our hotel: The Garden (where we will stay the entire time)

Monday, March 11:
Sometime after lunch we will head to get her (around 9:00 PM CA time -  1:00 PM China time)

Tuesday - Thursday ~ Medical and adoption appointments

Thursday or Friday we will go to Suixi (where Kaylee's orphanage is - about 4.5 hours from Guangzhou). She will come with us and we will get to see where she lived her first 2 1/2 years of her life!

We will get to do some sight seeing and have a few more appointments throughout the weekend and early the next week.

Tuesday, March 19~ Consulate Appointment

Wednesday, March 20 ~ 10:00 PM  Fly from GZ to HK, 1:00 AM fly from HK to SF

Wednesday, March 20 ~ 10:05 PM - arrive in SF (crazy - we leave and arrive at the same time, same day...Ha!)

We will stay the night in the Bay area Wednesday (it will be LATE once we get through customs) and then we will drive home Thursday!!!!

So blessed that HE is More Than Enough for all that is ahead - more than enough for Kaylee Grace and her world being turned upside down and more than enough for us! 

Here is what I have been doing the last few days:

Kennady thought it was funny how much stuff we still had all around and took this shot to send to my parents :)  This was yesterday.....I'm happy to say that we are done packing except for Brodie and I (which we will do mostly tonight). Wheew!!! Notice the scale...we had to borrow my parents scale so that we could weigh our suitcases and make sure they weren't over! I actually think we will have extra room now that I have everything packed but Brod and I  ;)
