It's that time of year once again. As it's crazy to look back and see how the entire year just seemed to fly by.
Hopefully everyone is having good memories - even though I know that years tend to include both growth and loss. Its also interesting to look back and realize how much of the growth may have actually come in result of getting over a loss.
One of our losses this year was actually our church. I didn't go into it earlier because I was too emotional, but we were removed from the worship team due to our relationship with our son's God parents. But the God-daughter we have and the relationship we have with her parents is such a treasure that I can't even begin to explain.
On December 22 - Anaia Noelle was born and she is the sweetest most precious baby ever. My heart is so full. And her parents are so blessed to have her as their rainbow baby. I will say at first it felt like we lost a lot when the turn of events happened - but now - I would say that we gained something much greater, meaningful & true. Yes, we were disappointed in how everything played out - but we know that what we stand for and how we conducted ourselves was the right thing to do.
I pray that the people who continue to be affected by the actions of those who aren't doing things right be protected and that they eventually see the truth. That when they see the truth they have the strength and guidance to do what is right in spite of what things may look like.
