Closer to Him

"O Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago."
-Isaiah 25:1

We received a handful of forms today that need signatures. We can't help but count the days until, by God's grace, we get to hold Baby Sam. The apostle Paul said, "I press on to take hold of that for which Christ took hold of me." (Philippians 3:12) Past all the toil and tears is a place for which Jesus took hold of us--His Father's house. Heaven. This adoption journey has begun to fill our hearts with a new love; one that flows from the river of grace. We press on, because the journey leads us closer to Him.
