For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. (Psalm 139:13-16)
On June 18th, God gave us one more blessing. His name is Gabriel Luke. He was born at 3:18pm. He was 7 pounds and 20.5 inches. Our family of three became a family of four. We are so grateful to God for entrusting us with Gabriel’s precious life.
Tomorrow will mark one month since this sweet little boy’s life began. Wow, he has been such a blessing to us! I can’t believe a whole month has already passed. I find myself really slowing down to enjoy the moments with my sons. I’m not getting in as much writing at this time, but I am writing a story on the hearts of my children with every moment I spend with them. I don’t want to be distracted and fail to enjoy what God has given me. I plan on taking the rest of the summer to just enjoy my new role as a mom of two. This is too much of a blessing for me to miss out on it distracted by other things.
I will still write here and there. But it won’t be my focus. My focus is my sons and raising them to love Jesus. This time goes by way too quickly for me not to enjoy every minute of it. I thank God every day for making me a mom and I want to show Him my appreciation by cherishing the moments that I’ve been given.
Thank you Lord for entrusting me with two beautiful boys! I’m immensely blessed that you have given them to Paul and I to raise. Please continue to give us wisdom and teach us how to love our sons like you love us. May the theme of our home always be GRACE and may we show this grace as often as possible to our sons. May our home have an atmosphere of grace, the same grace that Paul and I have been shown for many years through our relationship with you Lord! May we freely give what has so lavishly been poured out in our lives! Thank you for the blessing of our two boys!
