While there are still many people who will argue that technology has given us too much access or too little personal interaction, I - personally - am beyond thankful to live in the era I do with regards to technological advancement.
Yesterday, my friend Janet visited our soon-to-be daughters at the orphanage they currently reside in. Janet took her iPad and told me to have my computer on at 1pm EST. I did. And for the very first time, I got to see MY GIRLS in live action! We skyped for the better part of an hour! I talked to them, and they to me. All 4 of the kids here got to "meet" their new sisters and laugh and make silly faces at each other!
And then our girls in Ghana started singing...in perfect harmony...one of my favorite praise & worship songs! I Will Rise. It brought tears to my eyes as the lyrics are just so moving...and then (I still get teary thinking about it) the girls began singing Chris Tomlin's version of Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)...and all four of the kids around me joined in. I was surrounded by a chorus of all six of my children singing in perfect worship together. I can't imaging there will be any greater moment in my life until all six are physically together singing out praise.
Thank you God for bringing us together through technology.
I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the LORD Most High. ~Psalm 7:17
