gifts and a winner

Before I post the winner from yesterday's giveaway, I wanted to share a link with you. Many of you might remember Elizabeth, who I blogged about back in December. This beautiful little girl had her Gotcha Day words can describe the joy I felt reading her mama's post.

I also wanted to ask you to pray for a sweet little boy named Jaxson. You can read his story HEREHe and his mama need all the love and support we can send them right now. Could you take just one moment to visit their blog and let them know you're praying for them?

Stories like Elizabeth's and Jaxson's just make me realize all the more what gifts our children are. And watching these brave mamas traveling to the ends of the earth to rescue her daughter, the other fighting for her son's life here...I am inspired to be the best mom to my kids that I can be.


Behold, children are a gift of the LORD;
     they are a reward from him.
 Children born to a young man
      are like arrows in a warrior’s hands.
How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them!

Psalms 127:3-5

I am always in awe of Lacey's strength and determination. She is such a strong Mama and sooo perfect for Jaxon. I will continue to pray for them.

The pictures of you and Lily are beautiful as usual ~ you are so photogenic. I really need to have pictures taken of me with the kids more and stop avoiding the camera.
