Baby Shower Highlights

Carey & Leslie's
Baby Shower

What a wonderful evening we had last monday celebrating the birth of these two precious babies: Eleanor & Benjamin. What a baby shower! The setting was lovely! The hall was dimmed with little white lights strung all around. Beautiful classical music was playing in the background, as we caught up with good friends. We sipped our freshly brewed cappuccinos and dipped our biscotti while sharing our funny baby stories. How delightful and relaxing! The night of fun was topped off by a word of encouragement from a veteran mother of seven. She shared that life is messy and hard, and we are needy and that’s normal. Even though there is a lot of change for all (mom, dad, brothers, sisters..) we can surely know that God is in Control. He states in the bible. So we really don’t have to worry but rather just seek him. Seek Christ for perspective and for strength. It was with these thought that we spent a very sweet time praying for both sets of parents, the kids adjustment to child number #2 and of course we prayed for these little precious babies & toddlers to seek after Christ and believe that Jesus came and died on the cross to set them free from sin’s punishment.

May the rest of us continue to pray for one another. As we look at these little babies (Eleanor & Ben) our faith in and devotion to Christ would model them: only being satisfied with the Word of God as our milk, with child-like humility accepting where the Lord takes us, and delighting ourselves in Christ just as a baby coo’s to see her mother’s face.

Congratulations Ladies!!

I agree - it was one of the nicest baby showers I've been too! And the two babies are adorable. What fun we had!

As we await baby #2's arrival I am thankful for all those Moms that have gone before and have wisdom to share and a ear to listen. What beautiful babies (and Moms too)! I will be praying for both families esp. during the transition/adjustment time.
