The Miracle of the Moment....

God spoke to me in a mighty way this weekend regarding the circumstances surrounding Ethiopia and our adoption. Though the problems facing Ethiopia as a country right now are real, and though the issues surrounding our adoption and the waiting are real as well, God implored me to realize the miracle of each moment that he has given me here on this earth, instead of wishing the hard times away. I realized I was focusing much more on the negative circumstances than on God's awesome power and the blessing of each day. It is true, each day is a gift! And each day, each moment, a miracle. Here is exactly what God has been speaking to me, put into words by Steven Curtis Chapman:

It's difficult not to wish the hard times away, but you're right, even they can be a miracle. Here's praying that the difficulties in Ethiopia turn around and that your little miracle comes soon.

With Love,
