1 Year Ago Today

We found out we were pregnant. Craziest day of our life kicked off the craziest year of our life. It feels like yesterday and a lifetime at the same time. You can read more about what that day and ensuing weeks were like for us Here.

God is good.

And what a year it has been! God gave the world a gift when He blessed you with such unexpected news. Thank you for remaining faithful over this past year. My family & all who know you are blessed because of it. We love you guys!

Wow a year ago you only got 19 comments on that post. Am I the first today?

Praise God for a wonderful year. Praying that the next year brings many blessings.

Is it really possible? I'm like you and feel like--how can a year have passed?...but also it's hard to remember when our church family and the world wasn't crying out to God for you, Tricia and Gwyneth Rose. Seeing you all together now, one year later,is evidence that God is truly good. Enjoy this day.

I've been reading your blog since Baby Leino's mama and daddy posted about the pregnancy our their blog (so in early December). It's been quite a journey. Thanks for taking us along for part of the ride. :)

I know what you mean! You'll find that all of Gwyneth's years will fly by... you won't believe how soon she'll be all grown, but you will always see her just like she was the first time. My "baby" is 24, and I can still see in her face what I saw on July 10, 1984 :)

joyfulmom said...

What a year!!! You all have blessed countless people with your story, and I'm so happy that a friend sent me a link to your blog. I've cried, laughed, prayed, and praised right along with you since before Gwyneth was born. It's been quite a ride! I'm buckled up, ready for more. :)

Hugs from El Paso,
Karla and family

That's a cool day to celebrate today. What a long way the three of you have come together, in only a year! And what amazing gifts you have received from God!
I continue to pray for you. Wishing you many more blessings in the years ahead...

Dayne said...

Yes, He is. Praise God for giving you the courage to trust Him, to lean deeply into your relationship with Him through these long weeks and months. It has been a blessing to me to read your posts and see the sweetness of your family!

If God takes you to it, He'll take you through it!

And what a year it has been. You never could have imagined the ride that the Father would take you on - the ups and downs. But what an amazingly blessed and faith building year, not just for you but for all of us outside observers. Thank you again for sharing your ride with us and allowing us to partake in the work that HE is doing in and through your lives.
May our Father continue to bless you, Tricia and Gwyneth as you walk in HIS life.
