If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Pure Faithful Joy

Christmas is a sign of God's faithfulness, that He is who He says He is, and that He desires to be in a personal relationship with us where we experience his faithfulness daily. I was reminded of that last night at our Christmas Eve service when I watched Ruthie in her pretty red dress dancing and twirling to Joy To The World. I couldn't help but ponder the irony that I was observing pure joy while singing about joy. And then God reminded me that last June, Trent and I chose a word to pray over each member of our family for a year and Ruthie's word was "JOY". Oh He is so faithful.

Today's Side Note:

Last year we started a tradition of going to the Aquarium on Christmas Eve for breakfast with Santa. This is the boys last year. Crazy to think that we were 2 weeks away from our referral call for Ruthie in this picture and had no idea.

This year's picture with our little physical sign of God's faithfulness. Ruthie kept saying, "wata, santa, feesh"

Each child got gifts that were true to there personality.

Ruthie the Empress got clothes and shoes. She is a great nature nurture study because she loves dressing "pwetty". This is not something she learned from me but had to be genetic.

Sam the nut got a bike and a power wing. He was just running laps around the couch and kitchen. That kid never slows down.

Jack the thinker got a sign with stop on both sides so he could boss the neighbor kids around more, a bookshelf to organize the library he has set up in his room, and legos to build the disney buildings around the stops of the monorail he constructed out of his train tracks
