Treasures in Heaven

Matthew 6:20 Store up for yourselves treasure in heaven... for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Today we should be at the hospital celebrating the birth of our sweet baby, but instead we are going to rejoice with the angels for our treasure is stored up in heaven. How my heart longs to hold that sweet baby, but instead his maker is holding him... loving him... loving us. That baby gives us an even greater excitement about getting to heaven. While we want to be sad today, we have far to much to be excited about! We can have a peace that only believers get from KNOWING we will all be together soon! How awesome is that?
ON a lighter note... I was at the hospital all morning today getting checked out. And aside from majorly low blood pressure and Anemia everything is going great. Collins is growing as he should be and kicking away! What a blessing- especially today.

Thank you guys for your prayers and loving on us like you do! We truely do feel like the luckiest family around!
Courtney and Brendan

A busy summer

Well, I haven't been the best blogger lately so I am trying to play "catch-up" tonight! We have been so busy finishing the addition, playing with Jack, and hanging out at the lake. The house is starting to come together - Our room is finished, Jack's furniture is on order, and Collins' room is waiting till big brother moves out to be finished. We are so excited to be wrapping this project up and we are planning a big party for all of you guys to see it! We feel like we live in a mansion now and we never want to leave!

We had a wonderful 4th at Lake Martin with a bunch of our friends and family. It was nice to get away and just worry about playing!!

Hope you enjoy the pics!
