Lifted Up

GOD's grace abounded this weekend. Thank you for continuing to pray for and love on us. Living without Reese is a daily reality we face, and the LORD is good to carry us.

Meredith and my mom helped me with the nursery, and my dad helped Jason in our yard. We put people to work when they come visit. ; )
My dad busy pruning the crepe myrtles

I can't wait to see them bloom! Jason and his dad planted five along our driveway in Reese's honor last August.

Me & Mere on the square

My dad ran a half marathon on Sunday. He won his age group. Go Dad!

Me & my dado...sigh, maybe one day I'll be able to run again. Does chasing Z count? ; )

Silly times
Me and my wonderful mom

Jason's and my family give us such joy. They are my strength so many days and keep me going. They love Reese, and she is a huge part of their lives, too.

Just for fun ~ pics of our three kids
Mere took this pic of Z. My big boy!

Our perfect baby girl

Our new little guy. Colson says, "I'm on my way!"

But You, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, and the One who lifts up my head.

Psalm 3:3

Hi Katie. What great pics! Your Dad is the BOMB! Congrats to him. You look beautiful, as always. I LOVE the pics of the three kids. So sweet....I, too, wish you could have all three here with you! I can not wait to see pics of the crepe myrtles blooming. Do not forget to share that. I remember when they were planted for Reese. Have a great day.

I remember how it feels when you are expecting and how you long to run when you can't! You will run again soon! Pushing a very heavy ergonomically inappropriate jogging stroller. Wish I would have done my research :)
Enjoy the day chasing Z. Beautiful family.

I've been reading your blog for a while and I think you are so brave. You are a constant encouragement to me. I pray you and your family will continue to find healing in your loss. And CONGRATULATIONS on expecting another boy!! We too, are expecting another child and find out in only two weeks if a boy or girl! Take care! :)
