Where do I start...
Of course being at the same hospital where we delivered and spent our first couple of days with Hope, brought back many incredible memories. Not to mention that we had some of the same nurses (Leah and Kristin- love them!), and the same room... can you believe that?! I actually got a little teary when we got checked into our delivery room and I saw the room number. God was gracious though to give me a birthing experience with Logan that was all it's own. It will have it's own memories and beautiful moments. The part that saddens me though is that Hope now has a sibling that won't know her. She is still such a big part of our lives and Taylor and Macy talk about her so much still. So I know that Logan will know of her through our pictures, stories and conversations. I have lost count of how many times Macy has asked me if we get to keep Logan. Kinda breaks my heart. I never make promises but tell her that just like with Hope's life, we trust God and His plan.
I haven't blogged for months! Not because I haven't wanted to or because I've had nothing to write but just because...
I have written MANY blog posts in my head haha, but they've never actually made it to the blog. I know some of you can relate. So here I go, an attempt to catch you up on our life. :)
Many changes have come our way. Some hard, some easy but all good. Actually, I would say pretty much every part of our lives have changed since I last wrote! Our family has grown- we now have baby Logan to love on. Logan Daniel Reasons was born on January 11th, 2012. He weighed in at 8 lbs. and 2 oz. and was 19 inches of sweetness.
Another major change for us has been where we go to church. After 9 years of living, loving and serving with friends and family at Lenexa Baptist Church we followed God's calling to be a part of a new church plant. The church plant is here where we live in Overland Park. It was more of an adjustment than I anticipated but God is honoring our obedience to Him. Josh and I are being stretched and challenged in new ways and are very excited to be a part of the gospel centered Cross Fellowship Church. http://www.brookhills.org/global/church_planting/kansas_city/index.html
The last BIG change for our family is where we live! We put our house on the market and it sold in 11 days. Wow! Then through circumstances that reminded us that God is in control, we were able to buy another house that gives us room to grow. :) I love this house! There is alot of work and updating to be done but I have a super handy husband who can handle it and will actually enjoy it.
Home Sweet Home
I was just reminded last week of something important, so I will leave you with this, it's how I want to live my life-
Don't take life for granted! Use EVERY day, situation, circumstance, hardship, joy, achievement, and failure for the glory of Christ and the advancement of His life changing gospel. Love you all!
