Let the little ones come to me...

Andrew and Carissa are adopting precious little Rinah.

The video was taken when they were over in Africa visiting their soon to be little girl.

Do you see the joy?
The contentment?
The love?
The life?

They have "nothing." And yet they have everything.

I can't wait until I "grow up" and am able to adopt 100 babies. And I will smother them all with kisses and love. (don't worry... I'm not actually planning on adopting 100... I think 20 is more in my range.) ;)


Matthew 19:14 -- "But Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to Me and do not hinder them, for such belongs the kingdom of heaven.'"

Mark 9:37 -- "Whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me, and whoever receives Me, receives the ONE who sent Me."

Luke 4:17-18 -- "Jesus unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written, 'The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor, He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.' And He rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on Him."

such an amazing video. I almost started to cry. Their joy is something I cannot understand coming from the childhood and life that I had. Yet I had so much and could never find that joy. Thankfully Christ had an amazing plan in store for me in which I could have HIS JOY. But I have to admit. There are many days that it is a struggle to have his joy and only his joy to hold onto.. such a blessing.. I can't wait until I go to Uganda this summer :)...
