Look What Love Does

Recently a precious bloggy friend, Amy, wrote and mentioned that she had some
pictures of our Ruby from the orphanage while Ruby
 was waiting for us to come scoop her up.

She asked permission to do a blog post about our Ruby and include
the pictures….

Today Amy wrote a beautiful post {thank you Amy} and titled it,

“Look What Love Does”

Dw was painting {a bit closer to our ‘little makeover reveal’ – ha!} as I read
Amy’s post aloud to him.  Then I walked over and showed him the pictures
she had posted.  He became overcome with powerful emotions {as did I}.

Only God’s 

True enough.

The power of Almighty God working through love….it’s completely
unimaginable what God will do.

And the craziest part?

We are the ones who are blessed beyond anything that could be measured
in any type of human terms.

We get to.

We still cannot imagine why God chose us,
but we are convinced that,
although we didn’t do anything to deserve this privilege,
we are the very most blessed parents alive.


{I know that many of you totally understand what I’m saying.  
All the parents all over the earth and He chose you and us.  
Thank you, faithful God, a bazillion times infinity for this joyful privilege.}  

The side-by-side at the bottom of the post is dreadfully painful to my momma’s heart,
the fear and deep pain in her eyes, but the other is a testimony to God’s magnificent power.

We are forever grateful for each person who loved on our
Ruby while she waited…you are all part of her miraculous story.

Look what LOVE Does! 

I will proclaim your greatness, my God and king; 
I will thank you forever and ever.  
Every day I will thank you; I will praise you forever and ever.  
The Lord is great and is to be highly praised; 
his greatness is beyond understanding.  
Psalm 145:1-3
