Bring the rain

Over the past few weeks I have thought alot about the last several months and we have a ton of people ask us on a daily basis how we do it.. The only explanation I have is through our relationship with Jesus Christ. I wanted to share this song by Mercy Me because I really think it echoes how Greg and I feel. Although I wouldn't wish this on anybody, we have truly been blessed through this trial. Our sweet little boy has shown us so much about what it means to live and the example he sets by the joy that he has everyday despite the circumstances he goes through. So here it is...

Bring the Rain by Mercy Me
I can count a million times
People asking me how I
Can praise You with all that I've gone through
The question just amazes me
Can circumstances possibly
Change who I forever am in You
Maybe since my life was changed
Long before these rainy days
It's never really ever crossed my mind
To turn my back on you, oh Lord
My only shelter from the storm
But instead I draw closer through these times
So I pray

Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain

I am Yours regardless of
The dark clouds that may loom above
Because You are much greater than my pain
You who made a way for me
By suffering Your destiny
So tell me what's a little rain
So I pray

Bring me joy, bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings You glory
And I know there'll be days
When this life brings me pain
But if that's what it takes to praise You
Jesus, bring the rain

Holy, holy, holy
Is the Lord God Almighty

You are so much a part of our journey by your prayers and encouragement. Thank you.

I truly believe, with every ounce of my being, God is with us through every wonderful, horrible event that ever occurs in our lives. Who would we be, as His people, if we only had fairytail lives and nothing to question? You all are traveling down a very rough and rocky road, but because of your faith and love for the Lord you are inspirations to us all. That beautiful, precious, little boy is incredibly lucky that God chose you as his parents. I am changed for knowing you and your family.

God Bless,
