Magnify....that's a word I don't use very often except that's the word that has been coming to my mind the last few days...magnify! That's what I see Witt's life doing...magnifying God. God's work in one tiny life is being broadcast everywhere...being magnified!!! God can do something in one life but it is spread across thousands and thousands of lives! Glory!

*Witt's cool goggles are there to protect his sweet eyes from the spotlight he was under today to treat his jaundice.

Your precious Witt reminds me so much of our Finley in the NICU... hours after suffering a massive stroke. One thing is certain, our God is faithful. "I waited patiently on the Lord, he turned to me and heard my cries. He lifted me out of the pit. Out of the mud and mire. He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many people will SEE and fear and place their trust in the Lord." I am praying for you and your beautiful boy.

Hey everyone,

I have heard of a website that offers photographers who will come and take pictures of the family for free. I have seen work that has been provided by this foundation in the past and they do incredible work. Thought I would pass it on to you. www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org.

Witt is precious. Cheryl, Magnify is a great way to describe what God is doing through sweet little Witt's life.

Brit and Luke are excited to have a new cousin and they look at his blog before and after school each day to see if there are any new updates. Our family is continuing to pray for Witt. Love you guys.

Majesty, worship his majesty;
Unto Jesus be all glory, honor, and praise.
Majesty, kingdom authority,
Flow from his throne unto his own, his anthem raise.
So exalt, lift up on high the name of Jesus.
Magnify, come glorify Christ Jesus, the King.
Majesty, worship his majesty,
Jesus who died, now glorified, King of all kings.

MAGNIFY! What an amazing word to encompass the total impact of what is happening as a result of the birth of baby Witt. What an amazing testimony of two parents and a family who exemplify everything we all aspire to be. MAGNIFY! To make greater in size, extent,or effect; enlarge. Magnify our love, our faith, our God - know Him and make Him known. I continue to pray.
