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!

Something I don't do much anymore, please pray for me. ;)

The exciting news first:
Josie-Tatum and I have multiple opportunities to share our mission next week. On Sunday, we've been invited to another church to share with a children's choir about our mission.

Then, next week is VBS at our church. Every night Josie-Tatum and I will share with all of the children a little bit about our mission. AND, the entire mission offering from VBS will go to our work in South Africa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, please be in prayer for me. If I had to stand in front of people right now, it wouldn't be possible.

I know that the enemy wants my joy. The day before God started really "showing up" this week, I went to the doctor with a UTI. Nothing, new, I've have them before, many times before. Only this time, the pain was so intentse my blood pressure was 164/100. So, as the meds have begun to work, the blood pressure has come down. But, last night I started with chronic diahrreah. (Sorry, for any mental images you may now have formed.) I am assuming this is a reaction from the medication....Please start praying with me. I have so many opportunities to serve JESUS this week, I need to get better.

Thank you,
