Thankful Thursday




For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will. Ephesians1:4-5

And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward." Matthew 10:42

I am thankful for my children. I have posted their adoption story here http://soloved77.blogspot.com/2007/05/adoption-story.html.

Today I found out that a fellow blogger, Terri, just got a referral for a baby from China. Visit her blog http://riobello.typepad.com/adventures/2007/09/miss-ella.html, to see her reaction, it is priceless.

I am thankful and overwhelmed by God's grace, love, mercy, loving kindness, good gifts and forgiveness. We are His adopted sons and daughters and I simply cannot express the joy that brings me.
