One Year!

One year ago today, we passed court in Ethiopia and Isaiah officially and legally became our son. Of course, God knew that Isaiah would be our son before he was born. And we knew he was our son from the moment we first laid eyes on his beautiful face. But this day made it legal! What amazing things have happened in our lives since this time last year.

God took a "stranger" and made him our son, and in unexplainable ways, He has knit our hearts together as a family. And through it all, He has given us a deeper knowledge of and love for our indescribable Heavenly Father! Words are not enough . . . words are never enough . . .

Happy New Year!!!

"Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation."
~ Psalm 95:1

"What heavens are laid up in Jesus! What rivers of infinite bliss have their source, aye, and every drop of their fullness in Him! Since, O sweet Lord Jesus, You are the present portion of Your people, favor us this year with such a sense of Your preciousness that from its first to its last day we may be glad and rejoice in You. Let January open with joy in the Lord, and December close with gladness in Jesus."
~ Charles H. Spurgeon, Morning and Evening
