"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Depraved Indifference

This is a video by Eric Ludy called Depraved Indifference.  It speaks of the longing and desire of our hearts to meet and hold our little one that is so so far away from us right now that we have never even met.  I watch it and am reminded again how undeserving of God's mercy and grace I am and yet he has called me to Himself and He willingly died for me, a wretched sinner.  He has adopted us into His family and has placed that desire in our hearts and called us to give that same love to a child in Ethiopia.  We love our child so much already.  I cannot wait to meet him or her face to face!

When I came across this video, I couldn't help but share it with you.  Please check it out! 
We are on a rescue mission and  it is all for our King and His glory!! 

(Eric has a son named Hudson.  That is who the reference refers to in the video.  You could probably infer that on your own...but just in case you couldn't, now you know!)
