cool your dad got you a ball, a toy car, a doll, bet I could top them all! I thought sitting in my desk waiting for my turn in Mrs. Jeffers second grade class. Finally it was my turn.
“What’d you bring for show and tell Mihaela?” she had asked. I could feel my self smiling that mischievous smile I always smile like I was up to no good. My mom was standing in the door way.
“This here is my sister!” I said dragging her in the doorway displaying her in front of the classroom. Jenny, my sister, who was shy ran out the door. So I dragged her back in. I was so proud of having a sister. My parents went to Guatemala and had adopted her. My classmates gifts couldn’t top the gift I had to show them. Even if Johnny got ten thousand trucks and Suzie got a million dolls no one was ever feeling what I had felt that day, proud. I’m twenty-one now and I can still say giving me a sister is the best gift my parents have ever given me, and now I have five!
Family is amazing! And I thank God for them every time I think of them. But no one not even my parents could give me or us what God has given us.
4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast
