Fisher of men

Oh how Jesus uses our children!

SO few days this little one has rested in my arms,
but already I see him doing God's work.
Some hate the word orphan,
but I feel it is so important to remind people,
he is not our prize.

He sat for a YEAR!
His seeming diagnosis so scary
No one wanted him
We even had out doubts.

A dimpled little one,
who is a fisher of men.
He draws them in with his smile,
his dimples,
his fat little arms around their neck.

Almost every day,
I see this little fisher of men,
draw someone else in,
making adoption seem less scary,
showing the blessings He has in store.

He loves people,
his giggle is contagious,
he exudes love, and passion.

Although I feel so blessed
that he is our son,
I feel even more blessed
to be able to see how God will use him.

    Matthew 4:19
    “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 


  1. He is perfectly made! A reflection of his father! Love that smile!

  2. Love, love, love this picture of your little guy! Beautiful post as well, I love to watch and hear how God takes hard stories... people from hard places and uses them for His glory! How blessed we are to be a small part that He has chosen to use!
