We did a joint birthday party at a bounce place for the boys’ birthdays. Best idea ever! :)
Tonight marks the eve of Elliott’s birthday. Three years ago tomorrow our second little love joined our lives! We have been so blessed with Elliott and for him we are incredibly thankful!
I can’t believe it but I actually have a video montage made for him BEFORE his birthday. I shocked myself! :)
I chose this song because I love it and know God makes all things new. But I also chose this song because I feel like He has especially been making me new and using my children as tools in His craftsmanship.
Instead of worrying so much about what current quadruple digit size I fit into, I look at my silver stretch marks as battle scars on a body that grew and gave my children life. Rather then sleeping in (what’s that?) I wake 300 times a night if needed to each child’s squeal or cry. I know with out a doubt I would give my life for my children.
My heart physically aches when their hearts are broken. They humble me because I DON’T know it all. They inspire me when I feel like giving up. I am filled with indescribable joy when they ask me questions about God or hear them talk to Jesus.
Through them God is shaping me and making me patient, kind, selfless, humble, and hopeful. He is making me new!
