Carter Brent Reid

Carter Brent Reid was born Thursday 8/24/2017 at 9:57pm, 8 lb 3 oz 21 in. His new nickname per the doctor who delivered him is Carter Speed Racer because he made his grand entrance into the world quite quickly and almost in the triage waiting room. He has added such a light to our home. Ollie loves giving him kisses and holding him. We are grateful he is here!

God is the Gardener

This video really resonated with me.  It's so hard to understand why God will "do" things to us or allow things to happen that will make us cry, be in pain, anguish, and not understand.  But I do have a testimony that God is our Gardener and He knows the reason for every single pruning He makes.  As someone said in testimony meeting recently, "Things don't happen to us, they happen for us."
