Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

Our Fay-Cation

School was cancelled yesterday, due to Flood warnings from TS Fay. I had a good day staying home with my girls, knowing Ellie and I will leave for Tampa after school on Monday. Thank you, Jesus for one more day at home.

Yesterday, we played and made homemade icecream.
Today, we've been shopping as a family and went to a birthday party.

Ellie's pre-op is on Tuesday, early morning, thus the reason Ellie and I are leaving Monday afternoon, and spending the night in Tampa. After pre-op, I plan to take Ellie to the beach, just 30 miles from Shriner's. I hope to watch her enjoy one more time fun in the sand, sun, and water, before she's unable to do those things for 12 weeks. I'll try to post pictures, not sure how much computer access I'll have after that, but I should be able to post one more time after surgery, before most of the family goes home.

The rest of the family will come down on Tuesday evening and be with us then and through the surgery, probably until Thursday. Ellie and I will be alone on Friday...until we get to go home, which I'm hoping will be by Sunday....maybe before.

Your prayers mean more to me than you can imagine. I know the peace I feel as we wait comes from above, and God is answering the fervent prayers of many.

God Bless You!

We are praying, too. I told Kati and Eli that we needed to pray extra hard for Ellie this next week.
Eli said, "Why?"
I said, "Remember; she is having surgery."
Eli, "Why?"
My reply, "So she can walk."
He said, "Oh, okay!"
And that was that. He is remembering to pray for his friend.
We love you all!

I've got Ellie's picture proudly displayed on my blog. Prayers are coming your way. Hopefully, the weather behaves for your travels. We'll be thinking about you ALL.
