“See what kind of love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God;” 1 John 2:28a.

I just got home from the airport where two sweet church families welcomed a father and mother and their newest child from Ethiopia.  It has been a beautiful picture of Christ to me to watch my friend and her husband pursue and pursue the adoption of this adorable little boy!  The process was longer and harder than most, with extra paperwork and extra time and so, oh so much extra emotional energy!  And yet, what they sacrificed is so small in comparison to the sacrifice the Father made to secure my adoption into the family of God!

Smile with me tonight, and thank God for the precious gift of adoption. . .both physical and spiritual! 

Here they are!!
