A Time To Rejoice....Baby Titus' First Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

What a difference a year makes.  A year ago Warren and I left the hospital a few days before Thanksgiving devastated and with broken hearts with pictures of our precious, yet broken little baby boy. Thanksgiving week was one of the hardest weeks of our lives.  This past week we left the hospital with pictures of a precious, healthy and whole baby boy.....neither little boy less special, just here to teach us different things and grow us in different ways.

Today, we are praising our Lord and Savior for getting to cry only happy tears this Thanksgiving, we are remembering our precious Timothy that changed our lives forever, and we are looking forward to days ahead with our sweet, Titus.

Last Thanksgiving was a time for mourning, a time for crying, and this Thanksgiving is a time for dancing, a time for rejoicing. The seasons of our life will forever be changing. Some will be so hard we feel as though we may not survive and some will bring us so much joy that happy tears will flow. As hard as it may be, we can rejoice in both, knowing that we can trust a loving and faithful God with our lives.

Today we laugh, today we smile, today there are no tears, today is a time to rejoice! I pray blessings on each of you and your families today on this day of Thanksgiving, and I pray peace for those of you going through that tough season right now. Know that God has promised you that you will never walk alone. He is walking right beside you and will carry you when you think you can't go on.

Happy Thanksgiving! We love you all!
