THEY SAY IT'S WITT'S BIRTHDAY


Happy birthday to our favorite 1 week old! We have so much to celebrate so tonight that's just what we did, we celebrated Witt.

In the past 7 days...








We have learned how far our hearts can be stretched.
We have learned more about the power of prayer.








We have learned more about God's faithfulness in each situation.
We have learned to trust Him more than ever before.








We have learned the necessity of being "real" with one another.
We have learned to love one another at all times.








Our family has been fastened together in extraordinary ways.
God has blessed us with the opportunity to know this precious child of His.








We celebrate His greatness and the greatness of Witt's life!

Love,
Annalee

"The greatness of Witt's life". Indeed. I don't know where the name Witt came from, but, I often think of him as a "witness". He is a witness to us of God's love. Because of him, we have witnessed the love of a Christian family. Because of Witt, many of us in blogland are witnessing to one another, even if it is by requesting prayer for Witt and his family. What a wonderful blessing Baby Witt is. Thank you for sharing him and the miracle of his 1 week birthday. God is so good. ~Mindy

Witt, Mel, Big Al - We love you and have been thinking about you every day and praying EVERY moment. We can not wait to meet Witt. I too believe in the power of prayer. God really works in the most amazing ways. Sometimes it seems so hard to understand why things happen the way they do, but I believe God gives us the tools and aids in our strength to get through tough times. Witt is already a survivor!

How wonderful that it's his birthday! He is such a little man taking that breast milk and doing his thing. I am proud of him and I don't know him, so I can barely imagine the pride Melanie and Austen are feeling towards Witt!

Also, I give major kudos to all the adults in the group picture above. My family can never take a picture with every adult smiling - someone is always talking or looking away. It must be a family thing. :)

You are still in my thoughts and prayers and I think of you often.

Your great Aunt Lynn has told me good news every day, for the past 3 days, and I am praising the good Lord!! You are a true blessing, and you have one AMAZING family!! Can't wait to hear how the Lord continues to bless this WONDERFUL family!
