This may be one of the most powerful videos on adoption that I have ever seen. Especially when the young man starts singing “How He Loves” by David Crowder. It’s an instant lump in the throat and water in the eyes… there’s just no way around it. Tissue alert for you! I needed this today. I hope you are blessed by it too.
Speaking of the miracle of adoption, and the gift of love (and yes, more tears): look at what my little beauty made at preschool! She has amazing therapists, and together, they made this ornament. Hand-made (literally) by Karolinky! Already my favorite gift of the year.
I wish you a most blessed week before Christmas!
Oh How He Loves
-David Crowder (Lyrics)
And He is jealous from me, loves like a hurricane, I am a tree, bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy
When all of a sudden I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
and I realize just how beautiful You are and how great Your affections are for me
And oh, how He loves us, oh Oh, how He loves us, how He loves us all
And we are His portion and He is our prize, drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes
If His grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking
And heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest, I don’t have time to maintain these regrets
When I think about the way
Oh, how He loves us, oh
Oh, how He loves us, how He loves all
