WHY CHINA???

People are starting to ask Why China??? Well there are alot of personal reasons such as the one child policy that China has, the fact that I took a whole semester of China culture in Sociology way back when, but the main reason is we believe that is where God guided us. We believe this with every thing in our heart and souls. But tonight I went to Billyfoote.com, they are a couple from San Antonio, whom also wrote one of my favorite christian songs, "Amazing Love", and whom also adopted their daughter from China and when I went to their website the true meaning of "Why China" was right there on the screen and I would love to share it with you.

"The Lord your God is the God of gods and Lord of lords. He is the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and takes no bribes. He gives justice to orphans and widows. He shows love to the foreigners living among you and gives them food and clothing. YOU , TOO, MUST SHOW LOVE TO FOREIGNERS, FOR YOU YOURSELVES WERE ONCE FOREIGNERS IN THE LAND OF EGYPT. You must fear the Lord your God and worship him and cling to him."
Deut. 10:17-20

That says it all for us, and as I was reading it again and again, Steven and the war came to mind also. I hear all day long how people are against the war and how they are against President Bush. I myself have found that I am angry now and I don't understand things anymore ,because I truly do not want Bubba to go back, but for the sake of our son , one of the loves of our lives, I have to believe in what he is doing, and we must support him!!!!! So after reading this scripture I see that all of our soldiers are truly doing what is asked of them by our God, and may his love shine upon all of them and keep them safe. Hug your children tonight and when you go to bed please pray for our leaders and our soldiers I beg you, they are taking care of us, and the way I look at it Steven and everyone else over there are trying to make our world a safer place for Franceska, Rayn, Astrud, Jade , Lily, Joshua, Alex, Jacob, The Bruner kids,The Gray kids, just everybody, and all of your children to grow up in. Whatever we do in this life , do it to glorify God and we can't go wrong. God bless all of you.

Great post and I love the scripture reference. I think "Why China" is one of the most frequent questions we get as well just behind "Are they yours?". People don't mean any harm but after being asked by strangers for years now I sometimes want to say "Why did you choose to have a biological child when there are thousands of orphans in the world with no families ?" That would be rude though so I just check my attitude and give a very brief answer. It is touchy now though since Autumn understands and knows we are talking about her. OK..off my soap box now. Enjoyed the post.
