The 10 day post

This was written by a couple on the Reece's Rainbow group, and they posted it 10 days before meeting their precious sons. It has become sort of a tradition for others to also post this poem before leaving to bring home their little ones.

10 days away...

and I'm wondering...

I wonder...when it was 10 days before I met God and He adopted me, was HE this excited?

I wonder if His stomach did flips and He got tears in His eyes when He thought about holding me for the first time.

I wonder if His heart ached when He thought about my life without Him as my Daddy.

I wonder if it grieved Him to know that I was living as an orphan and had no hope of a future without Him.

I wonder if He was as okay with paying my ransom as I am with paying my children's.

I wonder if, for Him, there was not cost too high, no sacrifice to great.

This made me cry...remind me to post it 10 days before I leave...please, if you can remember :-)

I can say this, no amount of sacrifice is too great when it finally brings them home...
