6 Week Pictures

So handsome!

This is my favorite! I think it could be in a magazine with his name in the background and everything! The looks on their faces is priceless!

So, so sweet!

I asked a friend of mine who tabbles in photography if he would be willing to come a do a photo shoot for Jude's 6 weeks photos. I am very pleased with how they turned out and can't wait to get some up in our home!

I also wanted to take a few moments to share about what I am learning. Most of my blogs have been about Jude lately, not about what I am learning and certainly not about my marriage. A friend of mine gave me a book entitled, "Created To Be His Help Meet". Talk about being convicted! I read a chapter every day and am totally amazed with how God tells you what you need to hear exactly when you need it most. This week, I have really been hammered by being thankful. Thankfulness leads to joy. When we are bitter or keep an evil spirit about us, we can not experience fruits of the spirit like hope and joy. However, if we have a merry heart, and think upon the things that we are thankful for (and man do I have a lot), our hearts can not help but be joyful! Praise the Lord!

As I see such devastation in the very state (after those horrific storms this week) I live many lives, homes, jobs, etc were lost...I have a wonderful home (tacky blue carpet and all), a wonderful husband, and healthy baby boy (+ salvation, family, a job, friends, the list goes on and on) and yet I get angry when Justin leaves the bottle on the coffee table rather than taking it to the sink. I really need to get a grip and be THANKFUL and in return, I receive JOY! It really works!

Whew...thank the Lord for the Holy Spirit who convicts His children! Thank you Lord!

I love the pictures. I just finished a book called One Thousand Gifts. I can let you borrow it. It's kinda deep, but basically talks about our many blessings and what joy it brings:) See you soon!
