The Light

I love listening to Christian music with Molly. She has a beautiful voice and I love that she 'hears' what they are singing about...Our Beautiful Savior, Our One True God!
But, what I love the most is when God places it on her heart to ask what a song means and she wants the entire song broken down for her.  What an awesome Bible lesson for her... for me too.  But...the coolest thing that God does for us?  He always has her ask about songs that truly have meaning for her.  It always amazes me that when we discuss the lyrics, it seems as though they were written just for her! I love how God works!

 Recently, she asked me about Learning To Be The Light by Newworldson.
It started out simple...
"What is atmosphere?"
"How can you be trapped?"
"Why do you learn to be the light?"

We were able to talk about adoption, birth parents, adoptive families, how God can take a yucky situation and give hope to it, how knowing Jesus can be so full of light.  ALL for nothing in return! And our Molly?  She definitely is learning to be the light!
Molly, much you have endured but HOPE is yours!

One Year

One year has passed so quickly, 365 days of knowing and learning about our daughter, Molly!  Oh, how our lives has changed and Oh, how she has triumphed! She has endured much in her 10 years of living on this earth.  Six years with her birth family, three years in an orphanage, the human sorrow of being diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy and with that diagnosis...surgeries, medical appointments, feeding tube, and bipap.  But, through it all her LOVE of Our Savior stays strong.  Thank you Jesus, for covering our daughter in comfort and love before we became a family and thank you Jesus, for continuing to cover our sweet Molly with your comfort and love as she learns the love of a forever family and fights strong against Muscular Dystrophy!  She is Triumphant and a precious jewel of our KING!
Each day she is a reminder of how our God can take us from an unworthy circumstance to a WORTHY circumstance!  Molly you have changed lives and we love, love, love you!
