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!

Anticipating the Inconceivable

Living Ephesians 3:20, once again God has done more than I could ask or imagine.

Tonight, at church, one of the ladies in our church walked to the front and gave a challenge. She challeneged the church to sacrifice one lunch meal a week and give Josie-Tatum $5.00. She said if JT's little 6-year-old friend could sacrifice $5.00, then surely each person in the church could.

I wish you could all have seen Josie-Tatum's face, as, at the end of the service, people started coming to her or calling her name and giving her $5.00. Someone asked, "How much money did you get?" Her face lit up when she said, "I haven't been able to count it all yet." I can only imagine how God is growing her faith.

God is good!

Oh WOW Robbie!! And that's EXACTLY how it should happen. That the body of Christ watches where God is at work and pulls together to make it happen! Yes Lord! I'm so excited to see how the Lord will continue to provide.

When my daughter was about 6 she started telling everyone that she was "going to be a missionary" when she grew up.

She has now ministered in ...

Haiti
Senegal
The Gambia
India
New Orleans
Los Angeles
Wa. State (2 years full-time Children's Ministry)
Oregon (2 years volunteer Youth Ministry)

Keep supporting your dear one's faith in what God has called her to.
