Isaiah 54

Isaiah 54

On my refrigerator are magnets of each of the 23 kids we have sponsored through Healing Eyes and families in Michigan. When I look back at how we started and that this website was actually used be an Adoption Story blog and later a Cancer blog that it seems fitting that today it’s full of children’s smiles. It’s not what my heart wanted or desired but God wanted these children to have a chance in life and to bless our lives in the process. I wanted a traditional family with 1 or 2 kids, drop them off at school and picking them up, going to concerts and sport events cheering on my child. But sometimes in life we don’t get what we want but we get what God wants. I have to smile when I see these kids of mine on my refrigerator every day, knowing that they are a part of my life and there joys and sadness are a part of my life now.

It’s a holiday break right now in Uganda and our kids are back in the villages and perhaps some of them are changed after being away for 3 months. I hope they have learned something in school and can now see life in the village with more opportunities than before. That our little orphan ‘Mary’ will now smile more, and have more confidence because she can go to school now.

“Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!” And God granted him what he requested.” (1 Chronicles 4:10)

“Sing, barren woman,
    you who never bore a child;
burst into song, shout for joy,
    you who were never in labor;
because more are the children of the desolate woman
    than of her who has a husband,”
says the Lord.
 “Enlarge the place of your tent,
    stretch your tent curtains wide,
    do not hold back;
lengthen your cords,
    strengthen your stakes.
 For you will spread out to the right and to the left;
    your descendants will dispossess nations
    and settle in their desolate cities.
