The sun is rising. My heart is reflecting on the past year as we make our way through morning traffic to the airport. My joy is overflowing at the reality that we will see Dz again soon. At the other end of this day’s long flight is a boy still wondering if we will come through; uncertain what his future holds, full of excitement and anticipation, yet a slight hesitation to believe it all, just in case. How I’ve wanted to reach across the miles and reassure him time and again… Believe it Dz, this journey is already set in motion! We are coming! And we have prepared a place for you!
I love the beautiful picture of God’s story found in adoption…
“My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” John 14:2-3
The love and joy I’m feeling over our reunion with Dz, gives me a small glimpse of the love and Joy God feels for you and me! Oh, how He loves us!!!
