I’m Thankful for Adoption

A friend of mine suggested we state something we’re thankful for every day of November until Thanksgiving.  I like that idea, granted it’s already the middle of November.  I think I’m going to try to post something I’m thankful for EVERY day.  I won’t make it a law… that would steal every bit of joy from this… but I’d certainly like to give it a go!

For starters, and because my dear mother is so much on my mind:

I’m thankful for adoption- physical & spiritual- I’m thankful that God plucked me out of a rough biological family & put me into the M* family… MY family. I’m thankful He gave me amazing, godly parents who love Him more than anything & have prayed fervently & faithfully that God would redeem & spiritually adopt their children. I’m thankful that God has answered their prayers & that I am a child of the King. ♥

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. ~Ephesians 1:3-14
