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!

Update on Josie-Tatum

Josie-Tatum will have surgery in the morning to remove the wires from her arm. While the doctor says it is a very simple surgery, JT is quite nervous....as much about the IV as anything. Please pray for her peace.

We saw the surgeon today, and following x-rays learned that her arm is healing just like the doctor would hope. They took her out of the splint for x-rays, so she was able to have her arm washed off and plastered with lotion. That was wonderful. She suffers from dry skin in the winter anyway, and the itching has been unbearable for her at times.

When they replaced the splint, she chose flourescent green to wrap it in.

Who knows what she will choose tomorrow?

But, for the evening, it felt like old times. Whitney sat with her sisters on the love seat enjoying "Beauty and the Beast."

The boys were upstairs in the loft playing video games. I love it! Of course, next year, the big boys may have to share the X-Box with their baby brothers. ;)

And, a prayer or two for the mama will also be appreciated. I have strep throat...and I'm not enjoying myself right now. I want to feel better with Caleb home and JT's surgery tomorrow.
