Because

Because of Reese's short life

Because of her light

Because of her perfection

Because Jesus loves

Because Jesus hears

Because Jesus redeems

Because Jesus restores

Because GOD is faithful to His own

Because GOD is working

Because of GOD's mercy

Because GOD answers

Because He is in the details

Because of your prayers

Because of your hope for us

Because of your burden

Because of your tears

Because GOD makes everything beautiful in His time

We are celebrating. Heaven is stirring.

Colson, your cry was one of the sweetest sounds we've ever heard. We love you. You are ours. You are GOD's. You have been and will be carried by countless prayers.

You're healthy. You're beautiful. Let's go home...maybe tomorrow since I can't even walk yet. ; )

Thank you, Lisa, for wanting to be a part of this exciting day. These pictures you took of Colson are wonderful, and I loved seeing your sweet face. We now have special memories with you and two of our babies.


My soul finds rest in God alone...

Psalm 62:1
