His Boys

My boys.

I love saying those words.  I love the picture in my head and the warmth in my heart when I say those words.  

I am your mama.

And sometimes I still can't believe it.

It's perfectly clear that we don't share the same DNA, but you are so much a part of me.  I know what you're going to say before you say it.  I know what ticks you off.  I know what makes you happier than a pig in mud.  I know you.  

But listen, sweet boys.  You know how I tell you that I love you more than all of the snowflakes that have ever fallen from the sky?  God loves you even more that!

That's hard for me to comprehend, but it's true.  And actually, I'm glad He loves you more than me because there are so many times that I mess up.  I can't love you perfectly and never will, but he can and always will.

I don't know what your questions will be as you start processing your adoption stories, but whatever they are, I want you to remember God's love for you and cling to His promises.

 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.  Psalm 86:15
"You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being."  Revelation 4:11
 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  Proverbs 3:5
As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.  Isaiah 55:9 
Even though you are my boys, you are really His.

Don't ever forget that.


  1. Beautifully said! This is what I want my son to remember, too. Always. A joyful Sunday to you and your boys!
