Today - July 21st - we celebrate the birthday of our son Jackson. He is our little miracle - born 8 weeks early and growing to be a healthy, BUSY!, curious, giggly, silly, caring and kind little boy. We are blessed to enjoy him in our lives and wish Jackson a Happy 4th Birthday! :)
Today - July 18th - we celebrate one year of glorious life for our daughter - Baby Evelyn Margaret. She is a beautiful, independent, opinionated, sweet, funny, laughable, yet serious little girl who loves her blanket and cuddling with her daddy at night.
Our lives have never been the same since God graced us with her presence one year ago, and we Thank Him for her each and every day!
Today, may you be reminded of the gift of celebrating LIFE! It comes and goes so fast, and we cherish each moment we have together.
1. Frustration with 4 yr old son when he wouldn't sing a song for special music or say his Bible Verses. And
he was all over the pew and hanging on me during a service that I was leading worship for at a church 3 hours from my home. (We left our house by 5am to get there on time.)
BLESSING: A middle-aged couple came up to me after the service to say, "We were sitting a few
rows behind you and wanted to tell you that we think you're a very nice mom."
I tried to question myself and say I had my moments, but they were persistent in their
statement. WOW, Thanks God. I needed that moment of encouragement!
2. I was in the check-out line at Target to buy diapers when a mom with 4 boys in front of me didn't have enough money along to buy her box of diapers. (I was also purchasing a box of diapers.)
BLESSING: I was able to bless her by buying her diapers for her.
3. When I arrived home I opened my check from the church I led worship for that morning.
BLESSING: To my surprise, they gifted me $100 more than I was expecting!
THE LORD KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED AND WHEN,
IF WE WILL JUST PUT OUR FAITH & TRUST IN HIM!
