The writing is on the wall.

I’ve been thinking about this post on and off all day. I knew what I wanted the title to be. But I just googled what this saying actually means and it means, “ability to foresee (not necessarily supernaturally) an inevitable decline and end” – wikpedia

And that doesn’t sound very nice. That’s not what I’m gong for here. But, you know what? I think it works.

Because it signifies an end to these girls being orphans.

Because they are a part of a forever family now.

Loved. Daughters. Wanted.

No longer in limbo waiting for a mommy and daddy. How ’bout that? Accepted. Lifted up.

Encouraged. Belonging.

Out with the old, in with the new.

These girls have a new life! With a new family! With new cute stuff on the walls to prove it!

And that reminds me of a Bible verse.

2 Corinthians 5:17
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

Adoption is such a beautiful picture of how we too are adopted into the Father’s family through Jesus. The old life is gone. A new life has begun!
