Our thank yous

We would like to share with you some thoughts as we were reflecting on our first year with the children.

David's thoughts:

When we 1st received the news we were expecting Quints, we were so excited, but on another note we thought how will we do this.
Jeremiah 32:17 says: ”Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.”
We knew that if the Lord gave these babies to us to raise then He would provide a way.
Sure enough “And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”- Philippians 4:19
Gratitude to all of you this past 19 mo of your constant faithfulness, love and support in so many ways.
We want to give special thanks to all of you because in many different ways you touched our family’s life. It is beautiful to see how God looked after us in the following ways:
Getting our house ready for the babies home coming
Cutting grass and planting flowers
Providing mothers’ milk
Providing through WIC and Georgetown Market
Cleaning our home
Taking beautiful photos of our children
Providing infant care, diapers, toys, cloths
Keeping everything organized
Uploading photos on the blog
Pureeing veggies and fruits for the babies
Accomplishing handyman projects around the house

From the very beginning our goal was to maximize our time with the babies and only because of you this has been possible.
This following verse means a lot to us "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."- 1 Thes.5:16-18
Thank you!

Manna's thoughts:

How can I best summarize this incredible year behind us? I am quoting a quad’s dad, a friend of ours. „We lived a year under God's providence in parenting!”
As I was reflecting on this passed year I thought I will borrow the words from Psalm 23 and Matthew 6 to describe our life with the quints.
The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need... because our Heavenly Father already knows all our needs
He also renews my strength... Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life.
I would like to express my thankfulness for
* the thousands of bottles you have washed so far (extra thanks for the scraped of labels)
*for the hundreds of diapers you helped us to change and all the burp rags you have neatly folded
* As a mom and Christian I am thankful for a faithful and gracious God who not only saved our children’s life from death but He saved them for Eternity in Christ.
* As somebody who burns thousands of calories a day I am thankful for the awesome meals you prepared for us with so much love
* As a wife I am thankful for our many date nights you helped us to happen
* Thank you for being our friends and family, which lift us up when it’s hard to press on
* I am thankful for being surrounded every day by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith. You are beautiful Christ like role models for us
* I am also thankful for the strong grip of the body of Christ which we experience through you in our home every day.
*And last but not least I am thankful for the incredible gift of breast milk

Thank you for being a huge part of our life.
We absolutely could not do this without you!

You will also notice two Patek Philippe windows, one positioned below the applied Patek Philippe Watches logo and the other at 6 o'clock. The Replica Patek Philippe windows display the day of the week and date, respectively. The Replica Patek Philippe Watches dial is protected by a subtly curved scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
