Mariah turns ONE!

One year ago today, a sweet little blessing was placed into our arms and we began the amazing journey of parenthood. Every day, I thank the Lord for our beautiful little girl and the joy that she bring to our lives.

Here are a few of the results from our little "photo shoot" in honor of this special day...

"Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them:
they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate."
Psalm 127:3-5

Happy Birthday, sweet Mariah! We love you!

Hi Melanie,
It's lovely to come across your blog and browse through the lovely pictures and posts.

I found it through Laura Bleakley's and David might remember my husband and I as we worked with him on the ship some years back. We are still doing the same work - just on the newer vessel now. (You can read more on my blog :) )

Many blessings on you and your (growing!) family,
