Blessings!!

Those lovely days when our sweet babies are blessed are always some of the most special moments that I carry in my heart! This past Sunday, Josiah received his blessing under the hands of his Daddy, and other dear family and friends. It was just perfect.

Josiah was blessed with some lovely gifts including the heart of a peacemaker, the ability to commune with angels throughout his life, and a special sense of compassion that would allow him to bring a healing influence to those around him and bless many.

He already has.


"Josiah" means "the Lord sends healing". King Josiah in the Old Testament brought a spiritual revival to his people after a time of hardship and exhausted faith. Under his influence, the people returned to the Lord with greater love and dedication. Our own little Josiah is such a gift of healing from our Heavenly Father for our family, and the renewal of hope and faith has been nothing short of a miracle from the loving hands of divinity. We are so grateful. So very very grateful.


Isn't it amazing how adding another child to the family increases your love for each of the others? We've tried to figure out how to explain that to our darlings, but have finally decided there just aren't words!

So we'll just keep offering up prayers of thanks and praise. And so much love.

Wonderful, as always. I only wish there were more scriptural women's names. I'm sorry, but I do draw the line at Dorcas.
