Here's the video! Thanks to my mom for taking it. :-)
I'm so thankful for my parents and their amazing sacrifice to give us Quads life. How could I ever thank them enough for being our defenders when the medical professionals suggested selective abortion? I can't imagine what life would be like without two of my siblings. . . but I'm so thankful I'm alive to imagine, and that my imagining is not a reality. SO grateful for how they sacrificed SO much during pregnancy and the months and years to follow of countless dirty diapers, baby-burping, demanding tummies and screaming babies. :-) And most importantly, I'm so thankful they raised us up in the fear and love of and for the Lord! Love you both SO much, and I thank God for you!
Thank you all so much for praying for me and my family on our trip to CA, too. We arrived home safely late last night. :-)
Here's a passage that came to mind as I was writing this blog. May it encourage us all to keep our eyes on Christ and what He has done for us.
"Therefore since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off every encumbrance and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with endurance the race set out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning it's shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such hostility from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. . ."
(Hebrews 12:2 BSB emphasis added)
