My thoughts turned to exactly one year prior, when we sat on a similar sofa in the exact same hospital with empty arms, a broken heart and a little purple box. God whispered to me, “I am bringing restoration to your heart.” I looked down at the gift of Drew in my arms, our hearts full, and whispered, “Indeed, You are.”
One casual night roughly seventeen years ago, was probably one of the most pivotal nights for our marriage and future family. Strangely, it wasn’t a conference, it wasn’t a book, it wasn’t a teaching and there wasn’t even a word spoken about marriage and family. The overwhelming love, kindness and heart of Jesus that filled their home changed us. It changed what we desired, changed where we were heading, and quite honestly, changed our life.
