What Is A Family?

What IS a family???

Is it blood line?

Sperm donation?

Truly, if that's all it is why bother?

A family is love, devotion, loyalty, time, sacrifice...

not who is labeled on a paper tree...

not genetics...

Zoe's been on a mission trip/road trip with her grandparents for a few weeks. This is what happened when the sisters were reunited. It brought tears to my eyes as God whispered, "See, what I can make out of ashes?? A beautiful family..."




Psalm 68:4-6

Sing to God, sing praises to his name;

lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts;

his name is the LORD;

exult before him!

Father of the fatherless and protector of widows

is God in his holy habitation.

God settles the solitary in a home;

he leads out the prisoners to prosperity,

but the rebellious dwell in a parched land.

This video is so, so sweet. I wanted to say hello because a friend of mine, who is also apparently a friend of yours, sent me the link to your blog (which I've already read) because we are adopting an older child (she'll be 6) from China. I don't see your email address on your blog though.
