The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

awww...this makes me want to cry. I typed something similar to this for one of my children, but have it saved for when I got around to doing one for the others, too. We must get our boys together! They have so much in common. In fact I think just about everything except for the fact that mine (THANKFULLY!) love some Mexican food :) What an awesome boy your S.A.R. is! And how lucky he is to have a Mama that loves him so & recognizes all those awesome traits!
