Great Weekend!

We spent another weekend in Bossier and although it was quick, we had a good time as usual. Saturday was Avery's 2nd birthday at Gymboree and the kids had a great time. Landry Grace especially! My pictures are of poor quality as I somehow have lost the battery to my Rebel and had to use my iPhone for pictures. Not a good combination when you have kids going 90 miles per hour.

We continue to have a strong connection with our friends in Bossier. It's not that we see them every time we are in town or that we talk all the time even. There is a group of about 12-15 of us who became friends through our Sunday school class in Benton and have just had that "connection" since. We have had all kinds of trials and tribulations in our group. Moves, divorces, deaths, diagnosis', etc. Through it all we are prayer warriors and most of all true and devout friends. The most recent diagnosis is that of our friends with a 5 month old baby boy. I will with hold names and the diagnosis as the news was just found out on Friday and the family is still dealing with the situation the best way they know how. I am so thankful that God has placed this group of people in our life. We have grown together, prayed together, multiplied together, and cried together. My heart aches for this couple but at the same time I know that God placed this child with THIS CERTAIN couple for a reason! I know that God has his hand on them and will allow them to "embrace the journey" with their sweet boy. May we all choose to become better and not bitter when faced with obstacles. And although you may not know whom I am talking about, please pray for this sweet couple with me as they raise this child with love and knowledge of a God who is all knowing and all powerful and oblivious to ANY imperfections that we may see in any child of Him.
