But He Was Already Ours

I started to type out some powerful phrases in this video by adoptive mom Jennie Allen, but there were too many. It's from the heart of a mom…about unconditional love…and a reflection of our Father’s love for us…her heart was stolen by her son...he was not from her flesh, but from the hand of God.

"I think that this idea that love is supposed to feel right. It's emotional....whatever. It's a commitment. It is a decision. That you say: you know what? No matter what you do to me I am in. You can treat me any way. I am in and I am not going to quit pursuing you and I am not going to quit loving you and I am not going to quit sacrificing for you." 

Take 4 minutes to watch this:

God is smarter than we are

"Have you come to the realization yet that what God desires for your life is infinitely better than anything you can think or imagine? He knows far more than we know. He knows far better than we do. God is smarter than we are. He is kinder than we are. He knows the beginning from the end like we don’t. He knows it all."

Summer photo shoot

A couple weeks ago we went down by the Mississippi River and my co-worker took some family photos. I am so thankful to have these moments captured. And I am feeling incredibly grateful to God for the miracles represented in these photos.
