Parenthood can be intimidating for anyone, however when you really look at an innocent baby, one might wonder, “How does this little human being scare the pants off me?” While there are many elements in life beyond our control, God is much bigger!
We try to fill our lives with self-accomplishments when Christ paid the price to give us ultimate freedom from our to-do lists.

We are surrounded by clouds of eternal hosts so that we may live our lives in the protection of God’s guardian angels.
Here are some of Annabelle’s latest photos to conclude this blog entry on another good note.
