As I sat resting comfortably on the top of the picnic table watching my girls circle around the outside rink on their instructor's horses, I reflected on our family journey. It amazes me how God has taken every experience, trial, and joy and used it to grow and mold us into the family we are today. God has been our trail mate through marriage, birth of a daughter, birth and death of a son, and adoption of our youngest daughter. We have traveled through years of plenty and years of want. We have been created in His image and grow daily in our relationship with Christ with the purpose of worship. Just as the horses in the rink circle in training, so we also circle through life gathering strength, discipline, and momentum for the plan and purpose we were created. We know that God has called us to grow our family through adoption, and to raise warriors for Christ. So with nostrils flaring in the crisp air and eyes focused on the goal ahead; we will grow our family…grow in our walk with Christ…in all things to worship HIM!
