The Kids.

Today I needed to rest, so I lay on my bed praying and reflecting on the last six days. They have been a very interesting set of days. We have grown as a family, we have spent the week soaking everything in and thanking God for His blessings. So as I lay on my bed I began to cry. I was crying not from pain or from sadness but from a deep gratitude to the Lord for what he has done in my life. Maxfield's birthday was a new beginning for me; a time where God has restored what I had felt was lost, or broken. God is so faithful, so loving, and so kind. So I lay on my bed in tears, thanking Him for what I felt like I did not deserve, thanking Him for sweet blessings in my life.  As I was in labor,  I was reading  verses from the Bible, truth be told I was a little nervous and I just wanted to get things straight in my heart before we welcomed our beautiful son into the world. I set out to read the Psalms, and God gave me a great scripture;

"You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
Psalm 16:11

Just thought I would share ;) Oh, and for those interested, don't worry....little Maxfield hasn't taken away from photos of the girls, I plan to post, and post, and post!

Beautifully said! And it's just the beginning. :)
