4 Years Ago....


On February 26, 2008, I became a mom. From the moment I held that precious 8 pound, 3 ounce baby in my arms, my life has never been the same. Ever since I was a little girl, I have so looked forward to this chapter of my life, and it has been nothing short of amazing. I am so very thankful God picked me to be this amazing little boys mother. When I look at Jackson, he is a daily reminder of God's faithfulness and he is an answered prayer. He was so wanted, and is so very loved. Every day, I see God working in his life, and I know the plans He has for Jackson are good. Four years ago, the Lord was teaching me about His faithfulness, and He still is. Thank you, Lord, for our son. We love you all the way to the moon and back, Jackson Blake. Happy Birthday!





Great is Thy faithfulness,





Oh God my Father






There is no shadow of turning with Thee;







Thou changest not,






Thy compassions, they fail not







As thou hast been





Thou forever wilt be.






Great is Thy faithfulness!






Great is Thy faithfulness!







Morning by morning new mercies I see;






All I have needed Thy hand hath provided-






Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me.






Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,







Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,







Join with all nature in manifold witness






To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love







Great is Thy faithfulness!






Great is Thy faithfulness!








Morning by morning new mercies I see;






All I have needed Thy hand hath provided-







Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!






Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,






Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;






Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,






Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!







Great is Thy faithfulness!







Great is Thy faithfulness!






Morning by morning new mercies I see;






All I have needed Thy hand hath provided-






Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!


























































Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Psalm 107:1

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

“I know the plans I have for you," announces the Lord. "I want you to enjoy success. I do not plan to harm you. I will give you hope for the years to come. Then you will call out to me. You will come and pray to me. And I will listen to you. When you look for me with all your heart, you will find me.” Jeremiah 29:11-13

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Proverbs 3:5-6






See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are!


1 John 3:1



The Lord has done great things for us! We are glad! Psalm 126:3
