lineage



Mailing Visa forms today for three of us. Bobby's is still good from the last trip to Asia.

It hit me yesterday that if I live long enough, I might get to see some (at least half) Asian grandbabies someday. So, I got online and tried to find out what Chinese newborns look like. HOW CUTE! I'm smitten.

Almost sixteen years ago, during our wedding, we had our parents, grandparents, and a great-grandparent enter the church to an old song called "Find us Faithful" by Steve Green. It was meaningful to both of us to be a part of a multi-generational current of faith. Now we can welcome Moses now into this lineage.

But I'm not sure we are the only ones welcoming him. I feel like our little boy has been a part of that processional since before time began. I think he was meant to be here. And I can't wait to see what music follows the steps of his faithfulness in the years to come.

We're pilgrims on the journey
Of the narrow road
And those who've gone before us line the way
Cheering on the faithful, encouraging the weary
Their lives a stirring testament to God's sustaining grace

Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses
Let us run the race not only for the prize
But as those who've gone before us
Let us leave to those behind us
The heritage of faithfulness passed on through godly lives

Chorus:
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave
Lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful

After all our hopes and dreams have come and gone
And our children sift though all we've left behind
May the clues that they discover and the memories they uncover
Become the light that leads them to the road we each must find

About This Blog

Welcome to our family’s adoption journey. As you read, you will see us stumble and take wrong paths. You will see our hopes surge and fall. You will see the gaps in our humanity, and how our God realigns us to His purposes over and again. We think the messiness of this process is important. Sometimes walking with God isn’t a neat, linear package that can be summarized in bullet points. More often, life ebbs and flows around our plans, while God works His sovereign wonders from it all. We are learning so much through this journey. And we are super excited about our new son. If you’d like to join us, we’d love to have you along for the ride.
