Happy 1 year Little C!

When I gave birth to my first son I went through a 2 year journey where I was going from doctor to doctor trying to find out why I was in so much pain. It was then that the Lord laid onto our hearts attributes of believers. For my oldest it was Joy, through that struggle my prayer was that we would never lose our joy and Big C was a constant reminder of that. Joy oozes from him, and we pray that he will continue to share the joy that we know comes from the God of Joy! Due to finally being dignosed and being on an incredible amount of drugs we were not sure if it was even possible to have another baby, and if it would make my condition far worse. That, is where we truly discovered HOPE! I feel so blessed to know a God who is truly the God of hope! The verse below was so encouraging for us, and 2 1/2 years after our first son's birth I found out I was pregnant! It still seems like yesterday that I was feeling his little feet kicking inside my tummy, and then before I knew it there he was in our arms. Little C is a constant reminder of hope for us, and our prayer is that he will grow to love and serve the God of Hope! Happy Birthday Little C!

Romans 5:1-5

"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a]have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."
