Three Boys!

My son, hear the instruction of your father,

And do not forsake the law of your mother;

For they will be a graceful ornament on your head,

And chains about your neck.

Proverbs 1:8

The Bible is full of testimonies of Great men of God! When I read the stories of Isaac, Elijah and Timothy I am reminded of my Isaac, Elijah and Timothy. These boys have been such a source of JOY and a source of growing my faith in the LORD! When I was pregnant with Isaac I could not imagine having a boy. What would I do with a boy? Ten years later God has blessed us with 3 boys and I can't imagine life with out them! They are all different and unique, special in their own way!! My heart is so full with prayers that I need to consistently lift put to the Lord everyday. Prayers that these boys will hunger and thirst for God and His righteousness, for a God-fearing mate, for friends that will strenghten them in their walks with the Lord (Proverbs 27:17) and prayers that as a mom I will train and lead them in the ways of the Lord!

Elijah can make Bryan and I laugh so hard! He is always doing something funny! :)

Timothy is not afraid to try whatever Elijah has done! He thinks he is as big as Elijah. I am so thankful that God gave them each other, they are so close and for that my heart leaps!

These three boys will one day be men, husbands and fathers! I want to chersish every moment that I have with them! I love these little guys that God has given me! :)

Here I am with two of our boys....Elijah took the picture! He did a pretty good job! Isaac is usually my photographer but Elijah had to try it too!
