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!

Sunshine Inside and Out

Today was an absolutely beautiful day! The sun was shining, the weather was warm, and we had the sweetest fellowship.

We went to the city park, where we had a picnic with other adoptive families. Who would think that our little town would have 5 or more families who had adopted internationally. We were joined by 2 families from neighboring communities. The children had a wonderful time, and perhaps the parents did too. What a blessing to fellowship with other members of the body of Christ, all with a heart for orphans.

Today there were 15 children...I think....from 3 different countries, the Phillipines, China, and Russia...oh, yeah, and the USA. What a mighty God we serve!

Looks like a beautiful day. What a wonderful opportunity to get together with other adoptive families. I'm having slight weather envy. It was in the upper 30s and pouring rain. Keep posting those sunny warm pictures.

Have a wonderful week ahead.
