Blessings of 2012

Blessings of 2012

This year has been an eventful one. We’ve done many fun things and been blessed by God in many ways.

In January, we thanked God for the blessing of Jeffrey as he turned 5.

In February, we thanked God for the taxes that show we have money to pay the bills.

In March, we thanked God for dry beds as the boys learned the secrets of waking up to go to the bathroom while spending a week at Grandma and Grandpa Peckham’s house. Victor and I thanked God for 10 wonderful years of marriage while enjoying a weekend on the beach in the Bahamas.

In June, we thanked God for the blessings of John and Joshua’s lives as they turned 7. We also had the blessing of trading in our old van for a newer model that runs better and is not afraid of the rain.

In July, we thanked God for the blessing of having baby Sarah. She was born at home in a water bath among friends and family. A healthy happy baby! And a healthy happy mama.

In the months since then we thank God for health and grace and learning more and more to trust His guidance.

In October, we thanked God for Grandma and Grandpa Fitch, Aunt Heather and Cousin Dillon when they came to see us.

In November, we thanked God for safe travels as we traveled to see Juliette’s family in Texas and for the blessings of Gods’ Word and the time we can spend with Him. We also thank God for the family and friends who came to visit and brought beds and quilts for the kids.

Now as we enter the season where many pause to remember His birth, we again thank God for sending His Son to die on the cross for our sins, and for the blessing of His life-changing grace that enables us to grow and walk with Him, particularly in this time of upheaval as earth’s history comes to a close.

May He bring us all through so that we can walk together with Him on the golden streets of Zion.

Love and blessings!
Victor, Juliette, John, Joshua, Jeffrey, and Sarah
