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.
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!
