Small Successes or, More Accurately, Graces Untold
The readers at Faith and Family Live! encourage one another to embrace the life God has given to them. Stop by for a visit and be encouraged.
It's been a week of blessings and challenges around here. Of note:
1. It was one year ago today that I heard my niece Megan utter those unforgettable words: It's a girl! One year of my precious Ainsey-love! The complicated tale of our path to the family we have today is told here. The Readers' Digest version is that I never thought I would have a daughter, and I certainly didn't think I would have four children.
I am humbled and grateful in the face of God's generosity.
2. At the pool yesterday, John pulled off his swimmies, jumped into the pool, and sank like a stone. He was in clear, shallow water, and I was just two or three feet away. Needless to say, I was still shaken. Once again I am reminded of how absolutely vigilant we have to be around water.
3. We have enjoyed more rain than we have had in years. Green grass is August is a beautiful sight.
