Hands and house

Take my breath away

Ravenna out of the blue just looked up from what she was doing and with a gigantic grin said, "Mama, who saved my life?!?" Clueless I said, "Uhhh...I don't know, who?"

Running and jumping into my arms she cried, "You did! You adopted me!" I held her close, tears running down my face and said, "my love, you saved mine right back."

Speechless right now...

Oh my -- don't you just love it! And Jesus came to save us all. We can do all things (including saving each other in this life) because HE saved us. Thanks for sharing.

Barbara!
That is the EXACT conversation we had afterwards, that we are all adopted through Christ...of course it was filled with lots of sniffles and tears on my part....what an honor to love these kiddos and share Christ's love with them eh?

Oh be still my heart! What a sweetie!! And yes, I totally agree with The Richerts who said that Jesus came to save us all, and because of Him, we can help to 'save' eachother!! <><

Blessings!!
