more than a prayer.

I recently made this for a friend.
Who started on a journey to adopt her daughter over four years ago.
It's a bittersweet story, as I am sure most adoption stories are, full of anguish and hope and love and desperation and every kind of exasperation and it has finally come to an end in the best way.  
This piece is meant to be a play on in "Lord have mercy, this took FORever". 
Because four years is a long time to be "pregnant". 
But it's more than that. 
Four years ago my friend named this daughter Mercy.
So another way to see it is "Lord, have this daughter, Mercy, she's always been yours anyway.  Amen". 
But it's also an expression that each of us should carry in our hearts "Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner, who longs to love you, amen". 

If you would like one remind you to dwell on His mercy, email me. 

His mercies are new every morning...great is thy faithfulness.  {Lam 3:23}
