Emma's Prayer Shower

Today was the luncheon for Emma's prayer shower. It was fun to be out with such great people and to feel loved by so many! I'm very grateful to everyone who came and for the gifts I got. They gave me a shadow box to put memories of Emma in, and then a basket full of stuff for Tim and I to use for date nights with plenty of offers for babysitting! I am so grateful to be surrounded by so many wonderful people. The more I think about Emma and the timing of everything, the more I know that Heavenly Father is watching out for me. While this has been one of the hardest trials in my life, it's also been one of the times where I've been most supported and uplifted by friends and family around me. You guys are great! Thanks for everything.

How fun for you. You have been in our thoughts and prayers daily. Since we can't be there with you to help support, Brian & I are planning a day of fasting and prayer for you on the 15th. We love you guys so much. You truly are such great examples to us in your Christ centered response through such a difficult trial.

Hey, the Brick Oven! Good times... We wish we could have been there. What a great idea! We're thinking about you and will pray for you this week as your little Emma is born.
