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!

If you have questions about adoption, our work in South Africa, or spina bifida, please email me at rbmattox@bellsouth.net

Ellie's Prayer

Someday, I will have to get the video camera, so you can watch and hear Ellie when she prays. She is never still when she prays, because she is never still. She talks to Jesus for a minute, asks me a question, talks to Jesus some more.

Here are two of her requests tonight,
"Please, Jesus, help Daddy not be grumpy. Please help if I be a good girl, she won't be grumpy. (Everybody is a she.) Right Mama?"
"Yes, Ellie."
"And, Jesus, help me poo poo and pee pee on the potty, because I know how to hold my poo poo, but I don't know how to hold my pee pee."

So, laugh one minute and cry the next to think of my little girl telling God she doesn't know how to hold her pee pee. Can you say an extra prayer for her?

Aww, what a sweet sweet prayer!

I saw my mom's letter that ya'll are going to Africa - YAY! Prayers!

Oh dear sweet Ellie, I am praying that you will be able to hold your pee. My dear girl, I am praying for your healing and wholeness in whatever form the Lord chooses for you. Of course, I would prefer it to be complete so that you would be as perfect in your body as possible.
