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!

God Has Done Great Things!

One year, when taking a LARGE group of children to church camp, I assigned each of them a memory verse. It was their ticket onto the van each time we stopped. They were to read it every time they got back on the van from rest stops, lunch breaks, etc...and by the end of the trip, they KNEW those verses. They were hidden in their hearts.

I had a verse, too.

And, interestingly enough, our youth pastor at the time, still remembers MY verse. I don't know if he remembers his, but he remembers what mine was. And, he reminds me of it from time to time.

"The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad."

Well, God has indeed done great things for us.

You know, we needed $2,000 just to begin the process, right?

Check out our new ticker.

And, remember that fleece. It's still out there. And, it's wet, while the ground around it is dry. I'm still waiting, but I am excited to see what the LORD is doing.

Want to join us on this wild ride??????

Praise the Lord! God always provides just the right amount at just the right time. I don't know why I keep being amazed because it is just what He does.

He is just darling...all your kiddos are. Glad to be a small part in bringing your baby home;-).

Thanks so much for all your help, Robbie....unfortunately after much prayer and debate with DH we were just able to say yes to the little girl. We were just not on the same page;-(. Trying to rest in the fact that this was just not His will, and that He WILL provide the perfect home for her. My heart is broken right now and I'm praying for comfort and peace....I know it will heal....and I will continue to pray for her.

Thanks again for being there.

God is good!
