A Child's Smile


His smile captures my heart. Always has, always will. It's the mommy in me, beating strong, heart tied to a grin with dimples. A mighty tool for our Jesus, this little smile.

As a babe, His smile opened doors for the gospel in Thailand. After the Tsunami ravaged this beautiful country, we left to share hope. Everywhere we walked, arms reached for our children. People knew our hearts of love for them through a child's smile.

In Panama, traveling through the rainforest villages, instant connections made with other families through this smile. We were there to share Jesus, as a family, side by side. Friendships forged, bridge for the gospel, through a child's smile.

Kenya, Honduras, Costa Rica, United States, the trend continues. There is power wrapped in a smile. He moves my heart with a simple grin. Imagine what delight it brings our Abba God in heaven to see a smile spreading on our face. His child's smile.

I love Saturday posts ... simply a time to sneak a peak at my old snapshots and smile. Would you keep me grinning today and share something that makes you smile!

Hope. That is what makes me smile today. Today I have a hope that we can adopt again soon. We shall see. I will keep praying. But there is hope!
