New House!

We bought a house today! After much drama, we closed on a beautiful little house today. Then we moved a bunch of boxes in and realized how much work we have ahead of us. So at least I have an excuse for why I haven't been blogging. I need to add some new pics of the kiddo - she is so blessedly adorable that I can hardly stand it.

While I'm here at the computer, here are two precious children who need your prayers:

Baby Joaquin was born last week and coded immediately after being born. He was rushed to a children's hospital where he has been in critical condition. Please pray for him and his parents, Dan and Amy.

Sweet, 3-year-old Gianna (nicknamed Gigi), was diagnosed with leukemia last week - acute lymphoblastic leukemia. This has a really great survival rate, but she's looking at a minimum of 2.5 years of chemo ahead of her. Please pray for her complete healing. Her mom and dad are Laura and Cal.

Both of these couples - Laura and Cal and Amy and Dan - are relying on the strength of the Lord to sustain them. They are such a reminder to me of how precious life is and how I need to turn to God more in my everyday life. I had a priest really challenge me last week when I was in Confession, and so I've been working harder on my relationship with God lately. May He be glorified in all things, in every way.
