The Greatest Gifts

So this is a story all about how my life got turned upside down, I’d like to take minute so just sit right while I tell you about how I became the prince of a town called Bel -Air Just kidding this is really a story about how I became a Mom. A little over 2 ½ months ago The Treasured Ones got a referral of two little girls living in some pretty horrible circumstances with lifelong medical needs. They could no longer live in. Unfortunately without our paperwork and because their medical needs do not match our requirements for our programs; we could not accept them. I began praying for these two sweet ones that God would work miracles in their lives and provide all their needs that we as an organization couldn’t. So then God worked a miracle in my life. Days turned into nights of praying, seeking and talking with God and wonderful people he has placed in my life about being that safe place for these girls. God began to break open my heart for these girls. Could I do this? But .. Jesus they have medical needs can I handle this? What if I am not good enough? What if I mess up? So Jesus responded with a sweet but mighty “close your lips and open your ears child. I have something important to tell you”. So he told me and I whispered back two words. Yes Jesus. A week later I was standing in social welfare beginning the paperwork to bring them home. Every week I traveled to go visit them in one of the darkest places I’ve ever traveled and each week God whispered His promises in my ear. He promised joy, peace, comfort and patience. Each step of the way he guided as we day by day became less like strangers and more like family. Then exactly 59 days later in a small village courtroom we were finally declared publically as a family.

My heart and my home have changed forever. Oh how my kitchen becomes empty and my heart becomes full. (My girls love themselves some rice )

Rhoda + Priscilla my girls this thing we call life is so precious may God bless our family with a life full of Him and the crazy adventures he has prepared. Thank you for making me a mommy. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you Jesus for your provision and grace. Thank you friends and family as you continue to encourage and love on this new momma and her two sassy, intelligent, beautiful children.
