OH, joy.

     We just finished ourJesse Tree for the day.  If you aren't familiar with the it, it's a daily devotion to prepare for Christmas.  We are making our ornaments (tedious, memorable) and it's a beautiful mess.  Today's devotion is about God promising Abram as many heirs as stars in the sky.  A lot of the Jesse Tree talks about God's promises throughout the bible leading up to Christmas.  The question today for the entourage was "What kinds of promises has God made to you?"  Zeke, standing on a chair, sparkly eyes glowing, looked at Ryan and me and said:
"God promised me that you will always be my mommy and daddy."
    Joy.  Tears in my eyes.  Sweet boy gets that he is forever home.
