2012 in Pictures

Monday, December 31, 2012

2012 has been a year of continued miracles, grace, & mercy poured out on our family. Never in my life, could I have imagined what this road would have looked like two years ago. Although we believed every step of the way, it seemed impossible to imagine that this......

(5 months pregnant with a terminal pregnancy diagnosis-still can't believe how we smiled)

Could ever turn into this. 



God has carried us through. He has walked us down this road. And He has never left our side. We’re still healing and our home and lives are still being restored. We still pray for miracles DAILY for our baby girl and all the while still pray to be used.....
 
Knowing He is faithful.
Knowing that being used can and does hurt.
 
Knowing that the waiting, the stretching, the lessons learned will forever outweigh struggles & pain.
 
So we press on into 2013 with great Thanksgiving and even bigger expectations. We press for less of us and just more Jesus.
We pray nothing but the same for you.
 
The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, "The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!" ~Lamentations 3:22-24 
 
Enjoy a look back at our 2012, some fun times, and some of the things we're so thankful for!

  1. Jackie...I couldn't get through all of them without tears as I thank God for the miracle He has done for your family and all the wonderful things He has done and will be doing through you all. I do live vicariously through all the girly pics since I have all boys. Thanks so much for sharing friend. Blessings!
