Miracles in the Flesh

Our God is a miracle maker!  No matter how many times I witness His marvelous works~ miracles always overwhelm me and words seem insufficient.  Seeing our preacher's wife "home" this morning, in our midst, with their brand new daughter was amazing beyond description!  Calley was missed so badly!  It was so good to welcome her home, to meet their miracle, to see their family complete and together (in the flesh) for the first time in a couple of weeks... let's just say there were tears, lumps in throats, and a thankfulness in the air this morning that was palpable.  I feel so blessed and priviledged to have walked alongside them on their adoption journey.  To touch a miracle in the flesh!  To witness the miracle of a family built by God, in His timing, spanning a continent, and the hearts He touched along the way.  There are no words that I can think of that truly capture that experience.  God truly does work in mysterious ways~ too great for the human mind to comprehend.  Just standing in awe at His work.  :)
Wish I had a picture to post, but there are plenty HERE if you want to check out this miracle for yourself.  :)
Welcome to the Reed family, Camila, where you will be loved beyond imagination!  You have NO idea what an amazing family you've been "birthed" into~ and how wanted you are!  :)  Welcome to Cornerstone Church~ your church family that has interceded for you and begged God for your safe "delivery."  We loved you before we knew you and are so excited to FINALLY meet you in person!  I pray you never enter the doors without feeling our love for you and your family.  And finally, welcome to America~ I hope we serve you well and you learn to love our country as your mommy and daddy have learned to love your birth country.  You are a miracle and loved by so many people~ many you may never meet this side of Heaven, but love you just the same.  :)

"Your people will be my people and your God my God."  Ruth 1:16.  Our God is THE God, Camila, that brought you your family!  Therefore, He has always been "our" God, but you are now "our" people and we are yours.  God bless!  :)
