I've mentioned before that our pastor is in China!!!! (I'm a little excited over this - can you tell?!?!) So - they asked Joe to preach today. That guy amazes me - he works full time - more than full time - plays with his kids - helps me home school - AND can still put together a sermon that was wonderful. His sermon was on "Gotcha Day" and how the whole process of adoption relates, more importantly, to what our Heavenly Father has done for us. It was so appropriate to us as we're getting ready to celebrate Chloe's second Gotcha Day but appropriate, as well, since our pastor will celebrate Gotcha Day for the first time this Tuesday!!! My favorite part?? I loved the thought that each of us has our own "Gotcha Day" - the day that God chose us as His!! I checked our church website and it wasn't posted yet but I'll post the link and you can check off and on this week - it should be up soon (all of our sermons are available online). Just thought all of you -pro-adoption people would enjoy hearing him.
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
