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!

Ellie and I both slept beautifully last night. I woke Ellie up at 9:30, so we could go to church. (We skipped Sunday School.) She kept up with her "I want mama-itis," so we put her wheel chair beside the piano stool, and she sat with me while I played for the morning service.

She got cranky in the afternoon, following lots of visits from friends and family. I laid down beside her, and sleep caught her unaware. She slept for 2 hours.

She wanted to go to church again, but this time I had to hold her. She never could get comfortable, but back home now, she is happy in big sister Whitney's lap.

I thank God for my Big Kids, who have carried her upstairs, humored her, held her when she is grumpy. I will try to post more pictures tomorrow.

We would love to stop by for a visit, but you let us know when is a good time. I am glad you are all home and enjoying just being there.

Ellie is such a trooper. I'm thankful that you BOTH have been able to catch up on some much needed rest in the comfort of your own house. May your days be filled with continued healing and God's blessings.
