Gratitude Gifts Today

We have been blessed in so many ways over the past few weeks.  Being able to hold a new little one and marvel at her tiny fingers,  strong neck, soft little sounds and all round perfection definitely reminds us that everything God creates is good.  We pray that Maëlle's life will be a reflection of God's love as He works in her.   It is so amazing to see the ways in which God is working in our lives and in those of our families.   It's been quite a week!
