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!

Ready, Set, Go!!

This weekend has been lots of fun,
but we have so been on the run.

Went to school--then home again
Took Josie-Tatum to the gym.

Then for Ellie to ride a horse,
which was lots of fun, of course.

After horses and the gym,
we then met our mission friends.

From South Africa, they did fly,
to share with us the reason why,

They left their jobs and worldly fame
to serve the poor in Jesus name.

On Friday at school, we did test
and then back home with little rest

We went to see a saint gone on
No longer making earth her home.

We came back home to cook and wait
New friend to meet, Brandon's date.

Heather, well, was quite a hit,
She entertained the girls a bit.

On Saturday, we then did rise.
To cook for family who said good-bye.

We went to church to celebrate.
Ellie's bm made us late.

We left the church and headed home.
To wrap a gift, then we were gone.

To attend a birthday celebration,
For death to birth, was some rotation.

Games and cake and some ice cream.
First birthday with her family.

But, when we left, it did not end.
Another birthday to attend.

Then, that night, we went to bed.
After getting Sunday threads.

We went to church and praised the LORD.
Our mission friend shared the word.

Lunch was shared with our new friend,
Then, the packing would begin.

I packed for Ellie, Stan, and me
Tampa is the place to be.

On Monday, after school, we leave,
follow up from her surgery.

Then we go to Jacksonville.
An MRI is the doctor's will.

So, for us will you please pray.
Rest and peace and to be safe.

I'll post again on Tuesday night.
When in Jax, we arrive.

(Disclaimer: I don't know who wrote this silly song....;)
