Baby Shower in Atlanta

We took a quick weekend trip to Atlanta this weekend for a baby shower. Our friends adopted a baby girl a month ago. Her name is Chloe Morgan. It is a really amazing story how God answered prayers and brought this baby to them after years of infertility. They were chosen by word of mouth and it was a private adoption. She was born August 18th and came home from the hospital straight to Clete and Jan's home. She is truly precious and a gift from God. It was great to see them as parents! Here is Tyler and I with the Chloe! and Jan and I at her baby shower above.

This week is a busy week as I prepare to take a MOPS trip to Nashville, TN. We leave Thursday 1pm and don't get back until late Sunday night. The boys will be home all weekend by themselves. Although I will miss them dearly, I am excited for this trip and getting away from home a few days to be a girl (not a mom, not a wife) just a girl!
On another note: I want to ask you all for prayer for marriages in general. It seems Satan is on the attack in Savannah and trying to destroy marriages. I pray that each married couple fights for their marriage and does not let the evil one get a foothold. I love this verse and live by it:
Ephesians 4:26-27 "In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry. and do not give the devil a foothold.
We must pray for healing, repentance, and restoration in these marriages.

Carrie... I will certainly pray for marriages for all those in need. Read James 1:1-11. We're studying James in Small Group thi sgo around... it talks about faith through trials and avoiding the temptations in life. Although our marriage is strong, we have other trials we are going through and it has really helped me to stop and say "What is it God is teaching me through these times?".

Have a great weekend away!
