He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
In a season of dry twigs, I don't want to hear how God is planning to work. I am impatient to know he has already worked. When Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross and when three days later he burst forth from the tomb, the twigs respond and rejoice. May my twiggy, doubting spirit believe in the "doneness of his doings."

After much thought, we decided our children needed a new beginning with a new name. Every time we speak their new names it will be a reminder of our mighty working God.
Jenny is now Beth ("house of God"). It seemed so fitting since she comes to us from Bethany ("house of poverty") orphanage. We speak promise over her that she will have her life redeemed with the richness of God himself.
Jeremy is now Luke ("bringer of Light"). May the Light of the world so fill him that he will draw men to Christ.
So now we get to introduce our children all over again.
The hand by the face is a typical pose for Filipino boys.
She was quite taken with our neighbors' pooch.
