The Strength of Mercy

I highly, highly recommend this book by Jan Beazely! I could not put it down! Awesome story of how one family's adoption story was used by God to bring about an agency that has helped form countless families through the years.

Here is one of my favorite quotes from the book.....

"So many times we think of "extraordinary" when we think of God. We think that what He does and who He works with always has to be extra-ordinary. We forget He is the God of the ordinary, working quietly behind the scenes - interweaving, entwining our lives with the lives of others as we simply walk in obedience to Him. Then comes the day when our mouths drop open in awe as we see what God was doing behind the curtains of time. And we drop to our knees in utter amazement and humble gratitude to the Lord for using us to impact another person's life in a way we could not have conceived or executed".

That was the first book I read when we started our adoption. Excellent quote.
