So thankful....


There is so much going on in the Wheeler house. Even though we feel attacked from all sides right now, Chris and I can't help but feel INCREDIBLY grateful for our precious Eliana. I wish I could even begin to describe how much we love her....her spirit....her laugh....her talking non-stop....her humor....her sensitivity....her loving heart....her sassy self. She was made to be in our family. There are moments we look at her....and are amazed at how this sweet child became apart of our family. God is SO GOOD!! We are so thankful. We are also so thankful to all of you that have walked with us, supported us, cried with us, rejoiced with us, prayed for us, and encouraged us at exactly the moments we needed it the most!! I wish I could meet each one of you and give you a big hug. We couldn't have done this without y'all. Thank you just isn't enough. Please keep praying....for our hearts, for the transitions, and for the big things being thrown our way right now. We love you all so much.

Love,
Lindsey

Lord, Right now I thank you for The Wheeler Family. I thank you for how selfless and loving they are to so many of us even when they are going through hard times. Abba Father I cry out to you right now and ask that you would feel their hearts with a peace and a joy that can only come from you. I bind anything that Satan tries to bring against them. Constantly remind them that You are there for them when it seems like all around them is falling a part. Father let them feel the love that I have for them & the love that so many others have as well. In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!!

Linds, Chris & Sweet Girl, I love you guys so much. You are never far from my thoughts and you are always always a huge prayer factor. God has so much in store for your sweet family. I can't wait to see you guys around Christmas...I can't believe that the next time I see you it will be a year since I met you...it feels like we have been "prayer partners" for a life time!!!

As I was adopted and given a great life by Berneele and "Doc" Daniels, so you two are given the great privilege of adopting and giving Eliana a great life. My prayer is that Eliana will take all of the positive things from you and never stray. My heart is full this morning thinking of all the wonderful family times we used to have. Love, Dad.

Oh sweet friend, its a season. And seasons come and go. Keep your eye's on Jesus and the "big things" will seem smaller. So much transition the first 3 months home. Lots of love and prayers, Susie
