Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your
hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is (Ephesians 3:16-18).

Our Surprise Shower

Over the weekend we took a trip to Houston to visit some of my husband's family.  We don't get to see them often. The last visit was over two years ago!  This family immediately takes people in and makes them feel so welcomed.  Once you meet each of them, you feel as if you have known them your entire life.  This weekend they threw us a surprise shower!  It was wonderful!  

In the closet at Lute's Marine!  Who knew a closet could look this good?

Me and the baby bump! 

Everyone went above and beyond!  

Each gift was special to us.  I am thankful the Lord has blessed us with a child whose story will always point to Him.  I noticed this weekend, I can't speak of the baby without explaining how God's hand is in this pregnancy.  Every child is a gift from above!  It still blows my mind when I think of how the Lord unblocked fallopian tubes and the doctor wasn't even sure if he, a medical professional, would be able to repair the damaged tubes! Even in  dry spells God is working.  

The Supremacy of Christ
15He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. 17He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
21Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because off your evil behavior. 22But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— 23if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant (Colossians 1:15-23).
