{Always His}

{“He will yet fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with gladness…” Job 8:21} 

There it is.  Right smack dab in the middle of Job…laughter.  Proof that grief and joy can coexist…and in the most glorious of ways.  From the day our Sunshine’s file landed in our laps & we said yes, we’ve been laughing.  There was something deep seeded in our hearts that The Lord gave us in that even deeper joy.   Not precisely what you’d imagine when you were now faced with the incredible hurdles international adoption involves & the great unknowns of a special needs child.  But His voice was greater and He spoke joy.  It is, after all, what her name means…Ailee James {short for Aileen…or Eileen as my Grandma Cole spelled her name}…joy…light! And, gracious, is she so much of them both.  Oh my darling girl, you are the sparkle of sunshine our family needed and dedicating you to Him this morning…well, that was easy…you’ve been His all along.
