Happy Birthday Hadilyn & lil' Arie! (Our 1st niece & nephew and the 1st cousins Trey & Boston had) I am just going to assume that up in heaven you guys are having a HUGE 1st birthday party--I am hoping with a theme that is ran into the ground :) because that is the way we like to do it around here--well at least I would be trying to sneak tons of things in and your Mom would be staring at me and probably telling me "don't you think that's a little over the top"? And I would tell her "no" and do it anyway! Oh how I long for you to be here with us--sharing in everything we do! Not a day goes by that I don't think about you guys, the day that I met you 2 and the few short hours I got to hold you guys has changed my life forever!
May we live worthy enough to be with you someday, we love you sweet babies!!!
Be still, my soul: the Lord is on your side. Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain; leave to your God to order and provide; in every change God faithful will remain. Be still, my soul: your best, your heavenly friend through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
Be still, my soul: your God will undertake to guide the future, as in ages past. Your hope, your confidence let nothing shake; all now mysterious shall be bright at last. Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know the Christ who ruled them while he dwelt below.
Be still, my soul: the hour is hastening on when we shall be forever with the Lord, when disappointment, grief, and fear are gone, sorrow for forgot, loves purest joys restored. Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past, all safe and blessed we shall meet at last.
