As Christmas approaches, my heart is with those couples who are still waiting for their "match" and their chosen child. In our 8-year journey to parenthood, this was always the hardest time of year for me to keep "hope" alive. But our God is more than able to accomplish what concerns us and His Word never returns void. Now, we rejoice as we hold our precious son, Bradley. We also hope that the speech excerpt below will provide encouragement--especially to those still waiting for God's plan to unfold.
"The challenge with God's plan for our lives is He likes to throw surprise parties and we want the details so we can R.S.V.P. But our Father loves to hear the "oohs and aahs" of His children when He unveils His blessings. That is why you need to memorize Romans 8:24-25 and hide it in your heart. Bunny Wilson
For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is not hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
Let me give you an example. On July 4th, thousands of people come to see the fireworks display near our home. As the sun goes down, we wait patiently as we stare into a black sky because we know at any moment it will light up. How long do you think we would sit there if there was no hope of anything happening? Can we see where the fireworks display has been set up? No. Can we see the fireworks as they go up into the sky before they explode? No again. Until each one erupts in a bright burst of unimaginable design and color, we can't see anything. All we have is our hope in the promise that it will happen."
We hope and pray for the waiting Christian Adoption couples, who wait patiently for their special child.
(Rick & Tina are blessed each Christmas as they hold their Christian Adoption son, Bradley!)
