Celebrating New Life

We spent Easter last year in Guangzhou, China as we were in the midst of our adoption journey to make Li part of our family and to bring her to a new life here with us. Although we didn’t attend worship on that Easter Sunday last year, we were definitely thinking about the parallels between what she was going through and our own adoption into God’s family.

Again this year, as we celebrate Easter — admittedly in a more traditional way — and talked this morning in Bible study about why this day means so much to us, I am reminded of the parallels… and I am reminded how profoundly these simple acts of love have changed us in untold ways.

  1. What a beautiful girl on Easter Sunday!! It was wonderful to worship at home this year.
    Kisses to Li!

  2. Thanks, Holly and Sam! As much as Easter last year was (and always will be) a special day for us — including the red couch and rabbit ears — it was great to celebrate Easter at home this year…
