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!

Remembering A Hero

I must interrupt my family blog posting to share this video. With one son going to the military, perphaps this soldier's homegoing procession touched my heart more than it would others. I don't think so, though. To imagine his willingly to lay down his life for others, to protect the weak and the innocent, to leave his family behing, it reminds me of another One. The ONE who loves you and me so much he left his heavenly home to walk on this fallen earth. He gave His life for you and me.

Killed in action the week before, the body of Sergeant First Class John C. Beale was returned to Falcon Field in Peachtree City , Georgia , just south of Atlanta , on June 11, 2009 . The Henry County Police Department escorted the procession to the funeral home in McDonough , Georgia . A simple notice in local papers indicated the road route to be taken and the approximate time.

Just wanted to say, Jim had the honor of playing taps as this fellow soldier was being laid to rest. He said it was one of the saddest funerals he has ever done. Please remember this family in your prayers.

Can't watch it with two boys currently deployed in war zones, but thank you for honoring our sons and daughters serving our country.

I will pray for the family tonight. It is my worst nightmare that I live with on a daily basis while they are deployed.

Sister Robbie, Thank you for posting that. It is so nice to know that there are still people in this country, and especially here in our little state, that still love our country and support our military. And anyone that can watch that with dry eyes has got some kind of problem!
