"The Lord gives and takes away, my heart will CHOOSE to say "Lord, blessed be your name!" 

 On Sunday, March 2, 2008 we held a small funeral at church for our firstborn son and laid his body to rest. By far the hardest day of my life. I knew he was already with Jesus, but my new mommy heart just didn't want to say goodbye. 

 Today, exactly 6 years later, we stood in the same church and had his sister baptized as a promise to God to raise her in His truths, so that someday she may make that decision herself to live her life for Him, and spend eternal life with The Lord and meet her biggest brother when her time on Earth is over.

I'm so amazed and thankful for God's faithfulness to our family though the joy and the pain.
