Category: Small Miracles
I want to share with you WHY I believe what I believe. I know many of you may not have not had a singular, spectacular moment when your testimony was born; rather it grew from moment to moment. For me my belief is founded on remembering experiences I have had.
This is the story of our daughter Leila Jane. It tells how she came into our lives, how many miracles surrounded her adoption story, and what I learned from the experience. It is an actual father to daughter letter I wrote on the way home on the airplane from picking her up in Alabama. Normally I don’t share things like this but it is such an amazing story and the fact that so many others were involved in bits and pieces of the story that I wanted them to see the whole picture. *Many [Names] have been changed to protect the identity and privacy of others.
Ha, I bet that got your attention. What do leafbugs and miracles have anything to do with each other at all? Well I will tell you a story about a little leafbug that changed my outlook on life a recently.
I had to go up to our cabin today to check it. In general just make sure it has not been broken into, that there are no leaks, the furnace is working fine, etc. It takes about an hour to get there and I wanted to get in and out pretty quick. The HOA where our cabin is located does not allow you to park on the dirt roads; if you do they will tow you pretty quick. When I arrived there was only about 3-4 inches of snow in the driveway but it was packed hard! I could jump up and down on it and it would only depress about a quarter of an inch. I knew I would be there for at least an hour or two and was worried about leaving my car on the road so I didn’t block others and didn’t get towed.
