Tears of Joy

Even before Joy Elizabeth was born, we received an abundance of cards wishing us all the best with our new addition... but yesterday I opened a letter from a gentleman Jason works with and it brought tears of joy to my eyes.
The letter began with the typical congratulations but then the gentleman continued with this quote...
"It is no small thing to hold someone so fresh from the presence of God."

We have been blessed beyond our best dreams and we thank God daily for our family. Our family verse is Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper you, not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." We hold tight to the knowledge that He alreadys knows the plans for our family and that He was gracious enough to include Joy Elizabeth in those plans.


  1. that quote brought tears to MY eyes . . . what an honor . . . to be a mom :)


I love reading your kind words...
