Once upon a time....

Flash back to 1999, we were a family of four. Happy in our new roomy house and comfortable in our ways. A few years later, the Lord blessed us with an additional little package, little boy #3. Now we were a family of five and sure that would be the end. As time moved on, so did we. The Lord used the time that passed to open our eyes to His will. Several years ago, Bob and I individually heard the call to adoption. It has been a long "pregnancy", but during this incubation time, the Lord has brought us to where He wants us to be. Spring 2010, we traveled to Ethiopia where two little angels were waiting for the Lord's timing - to become our children. Now we are home and can't imagine life any differently! What a blessing to be in His will.

Galatians 4:5 says "God sent Christ to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as his very own children." We are just following his model. A Perfect picture of salvation.

Yep – a snow day again.  Today was a day for snowflakes.  A little tissue paper, a lesson on fractions and “voila” SNOWFLAKE.  We had fabulous time.  A few paper snowmen were created (which will likely become notecards in the future – aren’t they cute!?).  An opportunity came up to discuss the uniqueness of each snowflake and, in addition, each person.  I just love having and taking the chance to tell each of my children how unique they are and that each special cut, in character and body, was specially selected and made by God.  As they strategized on each of their snowflakes, how to create a new and beautiful snowflake, we talked about how God picked each “shape” found in them.  Every day the world tells them they are not good enough, not big enough, not special enough.  But my God says otherwise.  You are special.  God made you that way!  Celebrate the beauty.
