Our big boy is starting to show off…

Joy.

That’s the first word that comes to mind when I think of my family and our life together.  In my mind’s eye I can see smiles ear to ear, the kind that show lots of pearly whites; and I can hear the laughter even when it’s not in the air around me.  Now don’t get me wrong, things are never perfect in our home.  We have our share of whining, crying, fighting and the likes…but even in what feel like the worst of times, joy is that blanket that wraps around us on those less than warm and fuzzy days.

Tomorrow, that beautiful old blanket again will be around us again.  Or maybe I should say quilt…Sarah loves quilts.  Tomorrow is Bowen’s heart catheterization, and we find out how good his heart function really is. We’re hoping and praying for good results, and we’re sincerely optimistic. However, we know there’s a chance that the news could be less than what we’re hoping for.  If you would please say a prayer for our little man when you read this, we need it…he needs it.

We love the community we’ve found here, and are so grateful for every prayer and word of encouragement.  Love you all, thanks for your support.

“The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy.”

Psalm 28:7 (NLT)
