Because the Lord deserves all the glory!

Our "overly lively" child has been peaceful, obedient and simply delightful for two days in a row.

The Lord is teaching me to pray with only His glory in mind.

Ephraim is a simply wonderful addition to our family. It is as if he has always been with us--did I ever mention that the Lord told us Ephraim was our son nearly 2 years before we actually brought him home?

Elyssa and Enoch (our two sickle cell kids) were 'surrounded' during our time of sickness and neither of them fell into a crisis.

We have seen the Father provide for all of our needs "according to His riches and glory."

Our two oldest children are falling in love with God's Word and it is transforming their hearts and minds.

and now, a drum roll please.........................................

Elijah will be joining our family on Feb. 2nd.

Drumroll . . . and I found myself laughing out loud, overjoyed for Elijah, and your family, and what God is doing though you, and . . . I'm not even sure what else! Joy in the midst of all the sorrow of Haiti this last week, I think. Rejoicing with you!
