Battley turned 5 weeks old this morning. Instead of cake tonight we'll probably order some chicken wings from Wingstop and watch some of the NFL draft. Hayden and I are curious to see where Fletcher Cox lands...
The past five weeks would have been impossible without everyone who has lifted us up with prayer and food and affection. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate everything everyone has done. A few people have mentioned how impressed they are with how Catherine and I are handling everything or what an inspiration following the blog has been.
Everyday brings new challenges and unexpected joys and sometimes scary moments. Through all this we are simply leaning on our faith and taking joy in every moment we have with her knowing we should not fear God's plan. We praise him through the storms and after them.
Consider it all joy, my brethren,
when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your
faith produces endurance. James 1:2-3
It's Catherine for a second...please please lift up Amy (the Amy I've asked for prayer for before) today in prayer. She is getting closer to her due date and lost her brother yesterday in a tragic way. Please pray for her strength and that she be able to cling to God more so now than ever. Thanks, C
