New Life

                                                  The Garden Tomb -  Jerusalem, Israel
Because of Jesus' death on the cross and His resurrection, we have New Life and Hope.
 Easter is a time for us to reflect on his resurrection and celebrate that He is Risen ! Praise God  !!!

We also celebrate Maggie's new life with us and how much she has changed and blossomed, just like the spring flowers we are starting to see bloom.  Praise God !!!
My dear friend Monica left this sweet comment and I wanted to share it:
        "Our sweet Maggie is so adorable! Love the basket! I was just thinking how precious Easter is to ALL of us, but thinking that the NEW life that came with the resurrection and understanding the resurrection power has forever changed Maggie's life. She more so than the rest of us can understand what it is like to be without hope and held captive, but to be raised from death to a NEW life. "She once was lost, but now she is found, she once was deaf, but now she can hear, she once was imprisoned and now she has been resurrected to a NEW life ALL because of the power of Jesus Christ and HIS amazing love. Rejoicing with your precious family this Easter. So much to celebrate."

Of course, we also celebrate Easter with new Easter clothes and white, clean shoes.

Hello, I came across your blog and was so inspired to read about your adoption! We are awaiting our referral of a minor SN toddler daughter from Taiwan. As we are on our long wait, it is so nice to follow along with other wonderful families. Oh and by the way, WAR EAGLE!

Oh wow...what a neat comment your friend left. I LOVED it!! A true reflection of what His redemption has done for us...for your sweet Maggie! Beautifully written.

And thank you for joining with to pray for Kevin. I didn't know you met Laine in person...Lucky you!! She is such a wonderful woman of God and I feel so blessed to have come to 'know' her through the blogging (and New Day) community. Kevin is just so precious, and I can't wait to see what God has planned for his future!!

Big Hugs!!
