Sweet Little Justus


Just some updated pictures of our Little Man. He is six weeks old and growing ... growing ... growing...
It is so sweet to watch him sleep in my arms. He smiles as he snoozes and I wonder what he must be thinking. He is very alert and loves to listen to his Daddy sing silly songs. He nurses better and better as each week progresses. He is a whopping 9 lbs. 10 oz. and ever growing. He continues to have little bouts of congestion, but we are told this is to be expected. His little heart is doing good, and he has not had any "blue baby" spells. (BIG YAY!!!)
Our Lord is so good to answer even the tiniest of prayer ... of which continues to assure me that our family is serving an ever present God.
My husband is being so thoughtful and kind to see that I get some rest - as the last several weeks have been a bit exhausting. I feel much better thanks to him.
I always feel compelled to illustrate my deepest desire when I make a post:
That is how truly thankful I am to Christ. He has comforted me in ways I could never convey to anyone else, because only He knows my thoughts, my heart and the things I struggle with. It is daily that I have experienced His provision in some intimate way. This is where my hope resides in everything: Justus' health, our family's needs, my children's salvation, etc. I cannot express all that Jesus does and provides for us. The fears that can often grip my spirit fade away as I hand them off to Christ in trade with the peace that He offers.
There I said it... and I hope it makes sense! :-)

It totally makes sense! All the trust and assurance in Christ, from the time I have met you, shows consistently. Though none of us our perfect, your peace throughout the last year has been a continued example to me. We do serve a mighty God and the things Justus has overcome,just thus far, shows that. He is a little over a month old and already has touched many with his precious life.

Wow, Justus has really grown! Such a handsome little man! What a great reminder, too, about how the Lord DOES give us peace in exchange for our burdens...what an awesome thought for me today. Thank you!
