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!
