Singing His Praises

          During each of our adoption processes, there’s come a time when we’ve begun to pray earnestly about a small person with whom we've fallen in love.  Each of those times, a certain promise from scripture came to my attention again and again: on the radio, in the Bible, in sermons, and on huge banners at church that seemed to be displayed each time we’d reached that stage of the process.

          “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
                                                Jeremiah 29:11

Today, the Musician sat under one of those banners as he sang and played his guitar during the offering: “All the Earth Will Sing Your Praises.”
As I watched this beautiful boy, I reflected back on the months of prayer for him as we waited for approval to bring him home; on that promise from Jeremiah; and on the countless blessings this son has brought to our family. So proud and so grateful to God, we sing His praises too.

Giving Thanks, and
Trusting in Him,
