Feeling the Love!

Thanks to everyone who has sent words of encouragement! We've been showered with love and appreciate all the notes, emails, texts, flowers, yummy treats, and gifts. I decided to make this board and hang it in Drake's room. (Yes.... I just spilled the name!!)
Everytime I browse through it's contents I'm moved to tears. We know our little guy is covered in prayer. The Lord is near to him, and near to us. God has been working through
others to remind us that he is there, always. He knows our little ones name.... and now you do too :)

Isaiah 43

1 But now, this is what the LORD says—
he who created you, Jacob,
he who formed you, Israel:
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.

2 When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
3 For I am the LORD your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I give Egypt for your ransom,
Cush and Seba in your stead.
4 Since you are precious and honored in my sight,
and because I love you,

I will give people in exchange for you,
nations in exchange for your life.
5 Do not be afraid, for I am with you;
I will bring your children from the east
and gather you from the west.
6 I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’
and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’
Bring my sons from afar
and my daughters from the ends of the earth—
7 everyone who is called by my name,
whom I created for my glory,
whom I formed and made.”
