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!

At Last.....


At last, school is out. At last I am able to enjoy my days being Mama. At last, we've had a free day of nothing but fun. At last, I've had the opportunity to sleep late. At last, I've had aleisure quiet time with Jesus.


 At last, we've had unscheduled moments!! And, where should we spend that time? Why....in Grandma's pool of course!
All Four All Smiles

Finally learning to smile for photos!

Had to crop out JT. One eye was closed. She would have been angry had I left it as is.

To think that they first jumped in a pool EVER just 3 weeks ago, makes this photo of TOTAL enjoyment priceless.

Almost Always Smiling!
If you're swimming at Grandma's house, there is one person you should invite.

Moose!!!!

I don't know another young man who entertains children any better than he does. I don't know another young man who has such a servant's heart. He plays with my children, he plays with his nephews, he plays with children at church. If you remember, he played with the children of Shayandima in Africa. His Aunt Robbie believes God is calling him to children's ministry, but he hasn't heard that from God yet.

Moose, whose name is actually Josh, loves to jump from the diving board, making cannon balls into the pool. His Uncle Stan gave him the nickname Moose because he is a BIG boy! And, when a moose does a cannon ball into the pool, the waves created make little people feel like they're riding the waves in the ocean. it makes for hours of fun.

And, then there's the Moose Monster! Flippers, mask, and snorkel, complete the sound effects of deep breathing make another round of fun.
