Early celebration on Memorial Day
Now to Him who is able to do far more than all we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever, and ever. AMEN Ephesians 3:20 ESV
That is the core of my title for my blog. And today is my birthday! I did not know a year ago that I would be Mom to some of the most beautiful children in the world! I have tears in my eyes thinking of all that was given to me in a year, truly more than we could ask or imagine, and definitely more than I deserve.
In our adoption journey, we have met some of the most beautiful people God has created, not just the children, but the parents, and the caregivers, and the workers that have enabled us to have our family. It has been some of the most inspiring journeys in my life and one for which I am truly thankful. We travelled halfway around the world for such a privilege to bring our babies home. Our family is much larger than our immediate or biological family because of this.
It'll be a quiet day, although I did find out that my husband has a surprise dinner date for just him and I-guess it's not so much of a surprise:) We are going to go get some tomato plants and other garden veggies, even though it is a bit cool!
For this day I am quieted in spirit, truly happy, knowing the forgiveness of a Great God for all my shortcomings and wrongdoings, truly and definitely in a place I don't deserve-where it is more than I can ask or imagine!
