As I have posted or shared our story with our friends, we have gotten several words of encouragement. I just thought I would share a few.
A blog reader, who happens to be an adoptee, stumbled upon my “Experiencing Pain” post and wrote these words; Ephesians 1:19-20: “I pray that you will begin to understand how incredibly great his power is to help those who believe him. It is that same might power that raised Christ from the dead.”
We also get sweet words in emails: we dont want to remind you guys of things you already know…(God is good…etc…)…its like preaching to the choir. however we want to let you know that when you are happy…we are happy with you. when you are sad…we are sad with you. we will continue to pray.
That last comment really speaks to my heart. I love it. All I would ask is that you experience this with us and cry and celebrate with us. Everyone has been so kind to us, and I don’t want to diminish what anyone may have said; these words are just the most recent. Thanks!
