"I Wonder" an adoption poem by Chris Malone

This really moved me and Chris who posts on Reece's Rainbow gave me the green light to share :



I wonder...when it was 10 days before I met God and He adopted me, was
HE this excited?

I wonder if His stomach did flips and He got tears in His eyes when He
thought about holding me for the first time.

I wonder if His heart ached when He thought about my life without Him
as my Daddy.

I wonder if it grieved Him to know that I was living as an orphan and
had no hope of a future without Him.

I wonder if He was as okay with paying my ransom as I am with paying
our boys'.

I wonder if, for Him, there was no cost too high, no sacrifice too great.

I wonder...
