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!

Consider the Lilies





I thought of these verses when I was taking these photos of the girls.
Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin; And yet...Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If God so clothe the grass of the filed, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more cloth you?

God has once again showed up in our lives, exceeding, abundantly more than I could ask or imagine. Do you see the total for our mission trip today? Do you remember what it was last week?

Since last Thursday, we've received donations, a discount from the missionaries in south Africa, a transfer into our account from another member of the mission team, and the ending of a fund raiser...with a total of the week of $1,290!!! How's that for a week? Isn't that just like our wonder-working, awe-inspiring, Jehovah-Jirah?

As you enjoy the other photos of the girls, join me in anticipation of the unimaginable!

Hi. My name is Natalie and I also have a Gaoming girl! She is 5 1/2 and we adopted her in July 2004. I was trying to figure out which one of your daughters is a Gaoming girl. They are both so very beautiful. I love the spring pictures! Beautiful. I keep looking for a dandelion field where we live but never seem to find one.
I'm going to add your blog to my side bar (hope that's OK with you. let me know if you'd rather I not)and follow your blog as well! I love having the chance to 'meet' other Gaoming families.
Thanks so much for posting your blog and I hope to get to know you a little bit.
