Addis Ababa or Angels?

I don't often double post, but this is worth a repeat I think. If you read it at my other blog,
I apologize, but it is a good read ;-)


As we sat in our room at the Union Hotel in Addis Ababa, I left my camera lens open and shot the busy night life.

As I look back now I can see God's hand stirring our hearts. One of these lights looks like a heart. It makes me think perhaps these were angels sent to bring us a special love for Ethiopia.
Imagine messengers of God carrying hearts made out of Glory.

His message was received and we gladly say, "Yes, Lord. We will love Ethiopia and it's people."

We long for the day that we can put our feet back on her ground. Long for the day that we can close our eyes and open them up to behold the gift of Love He has prepared for us...and
her name is Princess Sweetness.
We don't know much about her near 12 years of life, but we know God is preparing all of us to receive hearts filled with His glory.
