Has it really only been less than a year and a half since our lives were forever changed? Being snowed in during #blizzard2016 has me looking through old photos and I can’t help but get teary thinking of all the Lord has done. We are so thankful that our daughters are home and thriving. And so thankful for the healing that is taking place for them and us in the process. What we see in the natural now is but a glimpse, a small part of the bigger, complete picture of our lives we will see at the end, when we see our Father face to face.❤️ Until then, imperfections, failures and all, we keep getting up and will strive to love beyond what we are humanly capable.. Because we trust in His Spirit within us.

[1 Corinthians 13:12] Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.

The Story of Ezekiel

1009913_1584224808483323_5744142056944974093_nThis is the testimony of my friends, Trinity and Rob about their son, Ezekiel. Trinity and I met many years ago through an outreach in Baltimore City. Her heart for orphans and missions led me to begin to pray for and want to serve orphans in China. Little did I know at that time that the Lord would have us adopt two girls from China years later! We recently reconnected and their life story challenges me to draw nearer to God in the midst of all circumstances. I pray that Ezekiel’s life and his family’s journey blesses, encourages, and inspires as it has for our family.
