Verity’s birthday thank you

June 26th, 2011

If you have been a part of our family’s life over the past year and a half…

…whether your part has been great or small…

…whether you have lifted our family up by your help, encouragement, and prayers…

…or taken us down a peg or two or ten…

…please know that we are full of gratitude to the Father for you.

God has used you in some way for His good purposes in us.

We love you all.

Here is a little something we hope you will enjoy.

    Beautiful video! It seems like this year flew by but that a year ago is so far away at the same time.  I’ve enjoyed our friendship and lifting your family in prayer.  :)

    “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever.”  This verse has popped up everywhere I look or listen….it’s been on the radio when I flick it on or on our calendar….it came up in church.  And what’s neat about it is I’ve been in deep prayer with the Lord about my ds with autism who has shown some regression over the past five weeks, involving very difficult behavior.  It struck me that the goal is not for me to be titled “Mother of the Year” for knowing how to perfectly manage my child with special needs.  The goal for me set by my creator is to keep a Christ like attitude in the process.  With each test and trial my character is being tried.  Will I come out as gold or as chaff to be thrown to the wind?
    “When I said, My foot is slipping, your love, O Lord supported me.  When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.”  Psalm 94:18-19
    ~While viewing the slideshow of Verity’s first year of life made me reflect a bit on all the days already gone by…all the sweet baby years…I was reminded that the Lord who saw me through those days when they were either trying physically and emotionally; He is the same today as He was yesterday and will be forever!  Verity’s life is a loud testimony to God’s faithfulness.  He saw her through open heart surgery and all her eating problems.  He is Always good and just and true!
