The latest...

While I was at the Dr. yesterday Payton lost 2 teeth. One was pulled by a friend, the other, best we can tell is in his digestive system somewhere, we are choosing not to look for it :). He was beside himself. He has now lost 4 teeth. Today was the 2 on the bottom


Anytime Benjamin so much as hears a camera click he races to the scene.


Payton asked if he could take some pictures. As you can tell from the look on Benjamin's face he asked us to hold our smile for at least 2 minutes before he pushed the button. Obviously the boy likes a close up.


Then of course Benjamin had to take a turn.

My dad reminded me last night of Phillipians 4:6, that with thanksgiving I can present my worries, even my tears to the Lord as a prayer while at the same time cultivating a heart of thankfulness. I love the way it reads in The Message. "Do not fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."

I am certanly feeling more settled this morning. Thanks so much for your prayers, phone calls and emails.

thank you for posting that, I love that verse and have relied on it often.

I am praying with you guys.

and the lines are b/c the last picture is somehow too close to the text, write BR between two "pacman signs" a.k.a greater/less than signs, before text and after the picture, and it should clear it up

Thanks for the info on the picture and something being in your teeth. I couldn't help myself and I had to check it out!

Ditto on what Monica said . . .we think on the same wave length apparently! he!

I love that scripture reference, and I'll pray that the Lord remind you of it daily - I know you will choose to live it out and believe His words every day! Your sweet Eden is hemmed in by her creator - I can't wait to meet her! Blessings on you!

Hey B,

I realized when I walked up to you tonight at church you were in the midst of a conversation. But I still wanted to give you a hug and a wink to let you know that I've been praying for you and your little girl - hope you got that impression.

By the way, if you we're a dork like me then you would know that your last paragraph shows up as a link because Blogger's html code attached your text to your photos. But since you're not a dork like me you wouldn't know that!

Have a great rest of the week,

W

Glad things are better. That is such a great verse for all of us to remember! I'll be praying for you and sweet baby Eden. Love her name! Take care of yourself!

I know I haven't told you yet, but congrats on baby Eden! I'm sure she'll be just as sweet as those two boys. Love you!

Hi Becky~ I am catching up on blogs and am super excited about your sweet baby girl news and just love the name Eden- beautiful! I am praying for you and her as your pregnancy continues on. Thank you for ALL your prayers and encouragement along Bennett's journey- you have been amazing. We got to spend a fun night with Sam, Emille & the girls recently, which was a real treat. I think they said your family is heading up this way for a visit soon, so I hope to get to see you then. Hugs, Kelly
