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!

Two Weeks Away From Surgery

"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us."


Last night, after my fatigue from work, hearing my children talk and play loudly all night, a headache, and little patience all afternoon, I marveled that God had entrusted me with these precious gifts.

I am out of my comfort zone with Ellie's special needs and her upcoming surgery, but this is God's moment. He can prove Himself for He will be my strength. He will comfort my Ellie. His grace is sufficient.

Please keep the prayers coming!

I'll be thinking of you and sweet Ellie. I've kept your wish for prayers going on my blog sidebar. By the way, your family portrait is stunning. What a handsome family you have.

Thinking of you. God bless.
