Lessons from A to Z ~ A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words

A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words…

Two years after welcoming our boys into our family, this December 23rd we went to the courthouse and finally and oh SO joyfully adopted Xavier and Zander officially! I still get weepy at this blissful thought.

Such a hard-fought emotional journey this has been. In this very courtroom. At times I think I could fill a book with all that we’ve been through. 

But other times, I’ve had no words. The moments when only God could hear the groanings of my heart— or on this day, the absolute joy and thankfulness I still can’t express adequately.

Words fail me.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So this month I offer you our adoption pictures instead.

I hope our story will always point to  the most amazing picture of all— God the Father, who adopted us as His own, sacrificing The Most to go after the least.  (Read Luke 15 for three beautiful pictures of this!)

And what a celebration there is when even one is brought into God’s family! Luke 15:10 says,  
“In the same way, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels over one sinner who repents.” 

 Now that is a beautiful picture.
