Thank you for your prayers for us this Thanksgiving week.
Thank you for letting us into your lives. You give me hope through Scripture, prayers, and sharing what GOD is doing because of Reese.
My sweet friends who have babies in Heaven...you are all heavy on my heart as we feel so many of the exact same feelings. I prayed for each of you yesterday. I know it was a day full of bittersweet emotions. I can't even describe how painful yesterday was for me.
One of my BU roomies did this word cloud a few months ago. I tried to post it then, but I couldn't. Somehow I figured it out. ; )
Isn't this wonderful? She said she loves how the word life is bigger than death. Me, too.

We love you more than you know and praise the LORD you are our son. You bring so much joy and laughter to our lives. We can't wait to tell you one day all about your little sister Reese and how you have helped us through these past few months.
This song touches my heart and soul. I imagine Reese feeling this way and saying, "Mom and Dad, you wouldn't cry if you could see everything I see in Heaven."
We know you are celebrating with us in Heaven today, Reese.
I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion.

To My precious child...
I wish you could see things the way that I see them. I wish you knew how tightly I truly hold you in My hands. I really have you on the forefront of My mind. I have sent My Spirit to be with you in time of crisis, and in time of desperation. I saw you cry. So badly I wanted to wrap My arms around you and wipe every tear from your eyes. I was with you, I am with you.
I know you struggle with the circumstances of life. Trust me, this is not how I wanted your life to go. But, I will fulfill My promise; you will have life, and life to the fullest. You will soar, and you will have victory. When I created you, I created you with a purpose. I can't wait for you to see what I have for you, I just can't wait!
I see you struggling, I see you trying to create an end to the madness. But don't be afraid for I am with you. I will never leave you, nor forsake you. You can trust me with your life. I created you, I will protect you. If you could only see the process, and see the outcome you wouldn't give up. Not yet. You're so close, you're so close. (I love that last sentence). ; )
Satan wants nothing less than for you to hate Me. Don't forget that. He hates everything that is good. I am turning what he intended for evil into something greater than you could ever imagine. That's why you can't see the outcome of this, because it isn't fathomable. It's really that great! I know the plans that I have for you. Plans to give you a HOPE and FUTURE! Plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I would never harm you. You are too precious to me! This is only a season of your life. This isn't going to define your life, this is only going to be the beginning of what is truly life. Oh the plans I have in store for those who love Me.
Seek Me with your whole heart. I have not hidden Myself from you. I am always here, and I have been with you from the beginning. Oh My precious child, how much I love you. I got this. Rest in My arms, I am worthy to be trusted. I know you're tired, just lean up against Me and breathe...take a moment and breathe. Feel My love for you.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven...A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance...

Thank you for your amazing words, prayers, and name gallery pictures. Each picture is perfect! You bless us each day.
Happy three months in Heaven, Reesie.
Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place
and gave Him the name that is above every name...

Zach is loving Little People these days and already playing with a LP nativity. He loves to play with them in his crib before his nap, but lately they have been doing more harm than good by distracting him from sleeping. So before one of his naps, I hid all of them except an angel. No reason for this, it was the only one that was left after I'd hidden all of the others. I put the angel in his crib so at least he would have one of his LP.
I usually do not check on him during his naps, but for some reason this day I did. This is what I saw...
Zach placed this angel right in the middle of his crib facing him.
I know Reese is not an angel, but it was as if GOD said, "See, she's here in your home. She's watching over her big brother Z."
So neat of the LORD to do.
Three months ago today Reese came in our lives, and we will never be the same. I'm so thankful GOD chose Jason and me to be her parents. I love her I love her and can't wait to hold her in my arms again.
How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with You.
