New Pictures of Zoe!
This morning I opened my inbox to discover new pictures of Zoe. I have ordered a care package to send to her through Red Thread China and she should receive the package in the next couple of days. We ordered her a pair of PJ's, a doll, a blankie, a disposable camera, candy to share with the kids and the nannies, a summer outfit and some sandals, and a Hello Kitty backpack that she can keep all of her things in. We were also able to send a photo album and a translated letter.
Zoe is a chubby little thing and I noticed she has a lot of scrapes and bruises. This can be pretty typical for a three year old! She now weighs 29 lbs. (7 lbs. more than Lilah) and is 35" tall.
We chose the name Zoe because it means "Life".
The word zoe is used 134 times in the New Testament to indicate eternal life.
Eternal life (zoe) is the whole future of the redeemed, and the final glory and reward to which the children of God enter.
Jesus says he is the way, the truth and the life (zoe).
Luke 16:9, 1Tim 6:12, Rom 6:22, Gal 6:8, 1Tim 1:16, Rom 5:21, John 14:6.
Today, we head out camping for the next five days with many many friends. This is an annual event to celebrate Canada Day!
