Happy Mothers Day!

Thank you, mom, for your example of humility, your friendship & mentorship, and most of all for pointing me to Christ... Happy Mothers Day to you!

Two years ago, I became a mom...
I'll never forget when these four precious ones walked through the door of the orphanage director's office... I was overwhelmed... I kept hearing the Lord say,
"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways...for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9
My heart was full...
This picture (below) was actually taken on Mothers Day 2009...
Oh the joy of becoming a mom to James, Angela, Jana and Victoria...
I was overwhelmed once again with the incredible honor to be mom to another... even now I must fight back tears of joy as I recall the day we met our son, Eyasu...

"Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!" Psalm 127:3-5
