Simple Pleasures

20170708_075434.jpgJammie-clad boys stand in the morning sun, watching a butterfly’s delicate flight. The simple pleasures of life in the U.S. captivate the newest members of our family.

Ordinary occurrences of tummy-filling meals and warm hugs from mom and dad go deep with our little men who were once starved for plentiful food and family.

As we near the one-year anniversary of wrapping these boys into our family, I lift my hands in praise and glory to the Lord Jesus.

It is He who stirred our hearts to be open for more.

It is He who led us and provided for us step by step throughout the three-year adoption process and seemingly endless waiting.

It is He who gave us courage, insight, and love through the heavy challenges of transitioning these little people into our family.

To God be the glory for the great things He has done!

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families . . . Psalm 68:5-6
