Welcome to the world...
Its taken a few days to even TRY and give expression to what has taken place over the past week in our household. Sometimes the kiss of heaven is so tangible and Gods faithfulness is so overwhelming that it doesn’t seem possible to articulate with mere words.
I never imagined that a few short years could bring so much change...Never would have guessed that we would be living in a new country, entrusted with pastoring & pioneering Hillsong L.A and never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I would be sitting here typing these words looking at the miracle sleeping so peacefully next to me, the newest member of our family …Our Son, Blaze Benjamin Houston.
Right from the beginning this baby boy has been a miracle. Choosing to trust God with the timing & decision to have a fourth baby….To believing for the birth I had always dreamed of. I can see more than ever that with each step that I took HE really was going before me and lovingly encouraging me to go ahead and take the next step. And that really has been the story of the last few years of life for me. Taking a baby step when I couldn’t see what was waiting on the other side. But trusting HIS plan and allowing the journey to teach me what it’s needed to.
Love at first sight
Meet the fam...
Just when you think your heart has all the love it can possibly handle... magically it makes a way to grow and love some more.
And just like that....We became a family of six.
welcome home baby boy...
Lost count on how many times I've kissed these.
Honestly seems surreal that he's here & that he's ours! And at the same time when I stop and think about it , I'm not surprised, because I know that truly is the type of God we serve. One that delights in giving us what we didn’t even know we needed. Now that Blaze is here..we couldn’t imagine our lives without him. He is the icing on the cake of our family. And all five of us are completely besotted and grateful beyond measure. God is so good.
