These truly are some of the sweetest days. The past few days I’ve really got to see some great interactions between our boys. These pictures weren’t posed, I just happened to get Isaac loving his buddy Henry. Monday night, while we were putting the boys down for the night, we were able to witness Isaac and Henry playing peek-a-boo with each other – no kidding! It went on for several minutes along with squealing, screams of joy, and laughter. They have all been watching each other closely and teaming up to play or check something out together. I keep thinking, “Wow, what an incredible opportunity to see our babies getting to interact and discover things together, thanks to the blessing of quadruplets!”
Also, I wanted to thank each of you for the great birthday wishes. It was an overwhelming response! Please know that any good that you see in me is not a reflection of who I am, but Christ in me. There is a lot of ugliness that I need to desperately work on……I also want to thank Brad for the thousanth time. I could not believe he put that all together and got so many of my medical “family” involved. Yes, Brad really is an incredible husband and dad. He amazes me daily with his patience, determination, compassion, perseverance, and just the down right fun he chooses to have with everything! I am exceedingly grateful for God’s provision through my husband. He is more amazing than I’ve ever observed before…You’ve got my respect, Mr. Murray!
I’ve never understood the line from Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, ” until this year. My 27th year has absolutely been my most memorable year yet, filled with the absolute highest mountain top joys, and some of the lowest most painful moments. Obviously, this year goes beyond us, as we had to bend our knees in submission to our Maker. I am thankful that God has used the storms to strengthen our faith and teach us how to be more like Christ. Please pray that we would continue to grow!
James 1:2-4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
Proverbs 11:2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
