Twelve years have passed since those long uncertain days. The tiny little boy is growing into a young man who loves his family, has a tender heart for all God’s creatures and is striving to be a follower of the Most High God. His life has not been without a few set back and trials but we are so proud of who he is and the destiny he is reaching to attain.
Not a day goes by that we are not thankful that God breathed his breath of life into a tiny soul and brought Josiah David into the world and into our hearts… Our lives were forever and wonderfully changed on that day!

But somewhere along the way...

Jonah, would do his Flag-Fire dance every time we would light the fuse. He was hysterical to watch and inspired us all to be a little crazy!
After the outside fun, we made beds in the family room and stayed up into the wee hours watching movies and eating Ice Cream! We are so blessed with the freedom we have in this great Nation.
If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. John 8:36

I love the beautiful blossoms that show up at the back door in the hands of smiling children...
While I may not love all the critters that show up in the back yard, I love that my kids want to explore and learn about them, even if Mama jumps and screams and we all giggle about it later...
I love the occasional bright and tasty berry that we rescue from the previously mentioned critters... Even if we have to split it 3 ways, the moment of that fresh, juicy bite is so sweet!
Praise the LORD! Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
I am giving thanks on this Summer day for all the goodness that God has provided!

The other day, our Jonah fell off his bike and skinned his knee. It wasn't too bad, but he was quite distraught over it. He wept for a long time... big soppy tears that seemed too much for a little scrape. He wept the way my heart sometimes does... over little things that shouldn't matter so much.
For a long time, I just sat and held him. I don't mind this small sacrifice of motherhood. I know that I can't always take away the pain or fix the little things in his life... But I my arms long to hold him through the scrapes.
And when my heart weeps... over the little scrapes of this life as well as the things that are too big for me to control or even to understand... He runs to me. He wraps his arms around me. He doesn't always fix it, or take away the pain but he never leaves me to cry alone. Every time I hold my little boy... I am reminded how I am held and how my Father doesn't mind my tears and my questioning thoughts. He promised to never leave me... and he never has. What an amazing gift of love he offers to my scraped up heart.

I am so blessed to be in the midst of such beautiful people.
My sweet Jonah loves to bestow kisses on his mommy... such a gift!
