All in the family

We have had a lot of sweet and exciting family time lately!

Our sweet nephew turned 1 year at the beginning of the month!

AND my brother in law returns from his 9 month deployment in Afghanistan this week!

I’m so excited to welcome our girl into our fun family! Oh how welcomed she will be! God revealed to me this week that my excitement of her joining our family doesn’t even compare with the excitement HE has when one of His created join His family! You see, He sacrificed much more than time, paperwork, money, and emotions to bring us into His family – HE gave up His only son for the perfect sacrifice for our sins. HE bridged the gap for us to join Him and all of His riches so that we could sit at His table with no condemnation but full on, overwhelming, in your face LOVE. And all it takes for us to join this family is accepting His free gift and following after Him! Wow! As much as I long for our girl to be home, HE even more so longs for ALL to be a part of His family. Beautiful and simple…

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. (2 Peter 3:9 ESV)

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are! (1 John 3:1 ESV)
