Refelections 09: New Life!

It's Steph & Chris's anniversary, today! What a dynamic-duo & incredible rolemodels for Josh and I [and SO many others] in marriage. Thanks for being a blessing in our lives and loving Jesus!! We love you guys!

Today, I am reflecting on New Life today and the blessings of it in 2009.
On August 4th [exactly one month before our wedding day]... This little bundle of joy was born...

Olivia Anne Page - our niece! What a sweet girl and beautiful blessing. She has helped remind me that life is so precious and fragile. She is truly a joy & is helping Josh and I "practice". Both of our nieces are great for that!! Helping us get our "baby fix" for awhile :)

New things are also just around the corner in 2010. As we step into another year... I really believe and pray that God's richest blessings will be revealed. I know in these "reflection" posts as I remember what took place in 2009... I can see the fingerprints of a mighty God written all over them! He truly desires for us to have life to the fullest!! Happy New Year, Friends!

"I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10b

Babies are such blessings! Our nephew was born August 6th (two days after your niece). It is amazing to watch these little ones grow and develop personalities. I, too, get my "practice" in on my nephews & when I work nusery at church. ;)
