This is how we arrived home late last night. Four of the six children were sleeping… even Abe fell asleep the moment he put the car in park.
Leading up to this day was a week filled with some very special moments, miracles, and answered prayers. Here are the highlights:
The Miracle Scriptures for Jordan's Baptism
I said, "Yes! Yes!" I hugged him right then and there and told him how we needed just exactly that for Jordan's baptism, but we couldn't afford to buy it. The next week he brought them to church. I couldn't believe it! They were in a BLUE case! Blue is Jordan's favorite color. I felt that these scriptures were definitely hand-picked by God just for Jordan.
We presented the scriptures to Jordan today after sacrament meeting. I pointed out the man in the chapel who had given him the scriptures. Jordan's eyes grew big with gratitude. He rubbed his hands across the case and said excitedly, "It's blue! My favorite color! How did he know to get me blue scriptures?" (I knew that would be a special detail for him… God knew too.) I'm grateful for this man who listened and followed that "thought." I know that his "thought" was a revelation from God... which led to a miracle in the life of our sweet, 8-year old son celebrating his long-awaited baptism.
