Family - Photograph by Organic Images

When you pray for 16 years “Dear God, just bless us with one child – only one” and he gives you three…..there are no words to describe the joy we have from our children. Our quiver is full. We finalized adoption on the boys in 2001 (Happy Gumball Day - another blog another day) and the race is on for Sophia if we’ll finalize this year or early next. God is good. We trusted him and of course he knew what he was doing! He prepared us for this journey we are on.
Proverbs 3: 5, 6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
As Thanksgiving soon passes by minimally recognized by some and Christmas surrounds us already – it reminds me of the greatest adoption story around – that of Joseph with Jesus! What love and direction Joseph bestowed on his son trusting God as well. So I try not to be ticked with all the “stuff” out there instead I turn my thoughts to what that adoption meant for Mary, Joseph and Jesus. It gives us eternal life.
Psalm 127:3-5aSons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.
