Hide and Find Joy

Your prayers for the girls have changed things around our house.

The favorite game right now is hide-n-go seek and of course with Jon, it always has some weird variation that keeps things interesting (and as I type this they are, so, so loud).

The girls count (in Amharic) while we hide. Notice Little A’s not so subtle cheating.

Hands down, the best part of this game though?

Our girls' smiles and giggles, their dark time of heart wrenching grief they recently walked through is lifting.

Do you see this smile? I looked at it and called Jon over. Little A’s time of sullenness is breaking up and we see again her sunshiny self. 

Praise the Lord. Thanks for supporting us so well.
