Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not grow faint.

This verse makes me think of the unending energy of children. Oh to have that energy, innocence, faith and enthusiasm. Those sweet blessings that are our children sure make our world a better place. May God bless you always. Who is ready for Summertime? Great News! Flip flops are right around the corner Time to plan for Summer Camps and Activities Enjoy browsing these awesome ideas from our wonderful advertisers! Our next issue will celebrate the joys of Motherhood and focus on the gift of babies In our Big Baby Book.
