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!

The Great Adventure

I'm so glad God gave us the gift of music, the notes that work in perfect harmony with one another, rythym, and melody. How is it that the scale repeats every eight notes in an octave? It's all amazing to me.

And, it's amazing how a song can speak such comfort to me at just the right time. Like Tuesday, What Faith Can Do....

And, today, as I was getting Ellie ready for her Saddle Up Therapeutic Horseback Riding, I kept thinking of the song, The Great Adventure.

Ellie's got a trail to blaze.....


Through the wild blue yonder of God's amazing grace...


She'll travel over mountains so high.



She'll go through valleys below

Still through it all we'll find that
This is the greatest journey
That the human heart will ever see
The love of God will take us far
Beyond our wildest dreams

Who could have imagined that there would be therapeutic horesback riding just 2 1/2 miles from our house? Who could have imagined all of the staff and volunteers who would love on Ellie with the love of Jesus?


Who could have imagined an entire community of love and support for a little girl who once had no family?

Thank you for your prayers and for joining us on this Great Adventure!!!!

Thank you for sharing. I'm so glad Ellie is able to go to horse therapy so close to home. Amelia just loves her horse therapy as well.
