Faith is deliberate confidence in the character of God whose ways you may not understand at the time ~Oswald Chambers

Swept Away

No new pictures.
No new info.
Just more waiting.
Which means more experimenting with cyber technology.

This time I thought I'd see if I could add audio to my blog.

This is one of my favorite songs about adoption. It's written by Geoff Moore (who also has adopted daughters from China) and accurately describes our adoption experience thus far.

You have no idea how much we love you Lia!

Swept Away by Geoff Moore

We would say your name a hundred times a day like speaking words in faith
And with a mixture of hope and fear and trust, we prayed for strength to wait
And dreamed of how we'd feel the day you'd be in our arms and swept away
Caught up in our love; home to stay you'll never be alone
You'll be amazed at how much you are loved
Your life will never be the same when you're swept away

What once was just a dream is reaching up for me; I hold her in my arms
Lord thank you for the way you held her all those days we had to be apart
And now I see the impossible dream is holding me and I'm swept away
Caught up in your love, home to stay I'll never be alone
And I'm amazed at how much I am loved; our lives will never be the same I've been swept away

"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!"--1 John 3:1

  1. Thank you Angela--this song is so dear to my heart too. I'm getting it for my ipod ASAP.
