Framed next to my bed is this beautiful self portrait of Rachel! It is a treasure! Why? Because it is a picture of how Rachel saw herself only a few weeks after coming home from China. Flowers are blooming and standing tall! She has a bow in the long hair she's dreaming of! Her arms are open wide, as if ready to embrace the new life God has for her! And best of all...she is smiling! She is happy! I have been immeasurably BLESSED!
