As Christians, we can go along our day-to-day life believing that God is present and working in the world around us, but never really SEEING him. It could be because we are too busy to notice, or too skeptical to accept. Have you ever said, "I wish God would put up a big, flashing billboard!" ? Not a real billboard - but something we just couldn't miss! Well, Solomon's story is one of those big, flashing billboards! God is here, God is at work! He has orchestrated details and situations too amazing to be coincidental. The whole Mestas story for the past 7 years, since their first adoption, has been that way. And Eileen & Jerry have been shouting, "Do you SEE GOD?" Read Eileen's blog and see for yourself.
Solomon arrived in Raleigh yesterday afternoon to a sea of balloons, signs, and new friends!
James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
Ephesians 1:4-6 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
