In the beginning, JD adamantly only wanted two children. I thought that four would be perfect. Once we caught God's vision of putting orphans into families, our plan was multiplied by God. We are currently blessed with 12 children; five biological, six adopted and one more waiting in Ethiopia. Our first adoption was from the U.S., the next three were from Liberia, West Africa, and our last two were from Ethiopia. We are supporting our 12th child in Ethiopia after her adoption could not pass court.

Healing Begins

If you haven't heard the song "Healing Begins" by Tenth Avenue North, you can play it on the playlist at the bottom of my blog. Read these lyrics though -

So you thought you had to keep this up

All the work that you do

So we think that you're good

And we can't believe it's not enough

All the walls you've built up

Are just glass on the outside

So let 'em fall down

There's freedom waiting in the sound

When you let your walls fall to the ground

We're here now

This is where the healing begins, oh

This is where the healing starts

When you come to where you're broken within

The light meets the dark

The light meets the dark


Afraid to let your secrets out

Everything that you hide

Can come crashing through the door now

But too scared to face all your fear

So you hide but you find

That the shame won't disappear


Sparks will fly as grace collides

With the dark inside of us

So please don't fight

This coming light

Let this blood come cover us

His blood can cover us


Isn't this remarkably true about human nature? We juggle our lives, try to keep up with the Jones and appear we have it all together. The healing begins when we are broken and don't attempt to hide our imperfections.
