With the time that I have right now, not being able to do much that requires walking or moving around, I am focusing on the things I CAN do. One of which is creating a scrapbook for Rachel & Jordan. They have seen the other kids' books and have asked if they too could have one.
As I was downloading some pictures into iPhoto today I was amazed at how far these kids have come. Our director of our agency is amazing and one of the things that makes her awesome is the amount of pictures and video you receive of your children. I wanted to share some pictures that were taken back in June '09:
In just 18 months, these two children have gone from:
HOPELESS to HOPEFUL
SAD to JOYFUL
FEARFUL to CONFIDENT
LOST to FOUND.
Brent and I continue to marvel at what an awesome journey this is. It is such an awesome picture of our relationship with Christ:
He gives us HOPE when we are hopeless,
JOY when we are sad,
CONFIDENCE when we are fearful,
and He lovingly pursues us until we are FOUND!
We stand in awe as we watch all of our children grow in wisdom and love for the LORD. I know that not all are called to adopt, BUT we are ALL called to do something. What is your something? What is God calling you to do today??? Don't be afraid, "For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline," 2 Timothy 1:7. Step out in FAITH and see the blessings the Lord has for you!!!
