Saved by Grace.

I was playing with Sarah and Emily this afternoon, when I thought about how lucky they are. They came from Vietnam, an extremely poor Communist country. In fact, you can't even adopt from Vietnam anymore. They closed the country. They would have had no life, no future, and no hope if they were growing up there. I thought about how strange it would be if the orphanage workers could see them now, playing with tons of toys in a beautiful home with lots of love. It took us five years to get them, but it was worth it. I'm typing this on the laptop as Emily is looking over my shoulder and breathing in my ear and Sarah is trying to cut my leg off with a plastic knife that she got for Christmas. They are well worth it all. But it is similar to what our Savior did for us. We were here with no hope, stuck in our sins without rescue. But Jesus, leaving the comfort of heaven, came and made the ultimate sacrifice for us, so we could be saved. It wasn't easy, but we were worth it to him. How wonderful. I just gave Sarah and Emily a big kiss. I'm so glad they were saved from Vietnam, and I hope they find the ultimate salvation as well.
