Living the adventure

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way.
The Lord be with all of you.
II Thessalonians 3:16 NIV

Light filled the hospital room where our little boy, Blake, was getting ready to go home. He’d never return to our home in Texas again, with his Peter Rabbit-themed room. He was going to our heavenly home.
