Adoption


Six days...only six days until we venture on a plane across the pond to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. 


2 Corinthians 5:7

We live by faith and not by sight.

The Message's version (2 Corinthians 5:6-8)

That's why we live with such good cheer. You won't see us drooping our heads or dragging our feet! Cramped conditions here don't get us down. They only remind us of the spacious living conditions ahead. It's what we trust in but don't yet see that keeps us going. Do you suppose a few ruts in the road or rocks in the path are going to stop us? When the time comes, we'll be plenty ready to exchange exile for homecoming.
