Grateful





All I can say right now is that I am so grateful that we serve such a faithful God. We are finding that when we have a true need He is meeting them one by one. I am finding that when I think things are hard and when Satan whispers doubts and lies in my ear, I can stand firm on the fact that I in fact did not get myself into this...God did and because He did...He will see us through each and every thing...and He is and it is such a great place to be...right in His will.

 Managing and shepherding three kids was tough and four is even tougher but there is also something so sweet, so amazing and so rewarding about it. Jacob is a tough little guy. I have been struggling to bond with him. I am a baby wearing mama and he is just not there yet. He has made HUGE progress but still has a long road ahead.

 We visited the doctor again today because I was worried that he was dealing with reflux, but our doctor has been so great and just assured me that all he is going through is normal for where he's come from and that Jacob is going to be just fine. He reminded me that I am a good mom and that I need to trust myself. I am so grateful.

 Today we took the kids to the zoo after the doctor appointment and had the best time with them! I am SO looking forward to a summer full of fun and family! Thank you all for continuing to check in. I am so in awe of what God is doing in our family and I cannot wait to see what He's got for us next!

And someone help me think of a caption for the photo below...there's GOT to be a good one out there!

Sorry, I am very bad at catch phrases, so I don't have a contribution in that regard. But I just wanted to say that I simply love that last picture - it is sweet and hilarious at the same time. May your newly expanded family continue to be blessed!
