Today, Carson is nine months old. This is absolutely unbelievable to me. For nine months now I have had the privilege and the blessing of being Carson's mom. nine months have come and gone. Nine months and I can look back and say, WOW! I cannot believe that it has gone so quickly. I also cannot believe how amazing and wonderful the last nine months have been. I am in awe as I reflect on all that we have gained in these last nine months.

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
