*we were trying to pose like they did in the olden days!

I have an amazing life, with amazing children and an amazing husband. He cares so much for other people. I have barely had time to talk to him this week, except for little bits here and there. He is either at the hospital or on the phone. Our hearts are breaking. Life is so fragile and everything can change so fast. We feel on the verge of tears at all times. I am thankful he is in my life and cannot imagine life without him. I cannot imagine loving anyone more.

Psalm 94:19
In the multitude of my anxieties within me,Your comforts delight my soul.

I can only imagine what you are going through. We continue to pray for all involved.
God is so VERY good in giving us husbands that are our best friends. The pictures clearly show your love for each other. I have a niece getting married in May. She's 18 and FAR too young (at least that's what the mother in me says)and I worry about her...your story reminds me that when something is God's will it will all work out. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful, just beautiful Paige.

And emotional at the same time, because I know how much you can look at this scenario and think, this could have been our family.

I'm so thankful the Lord preserved Tim. And I am praying in earnest that the Lord will bring this other family through this incredible trial. Miracles still happen and I feel we need the faith to believe that the LORD can do mighty things - because He absolutely can.

Tim sounds like a very caring doctor and friend and husband. You two suit each other so much. :)

Beautiful shots. Love the 'olden days' one! Haha!

Hugs, Jill. xx

At first, when I saw your "serious" shot, I thought it was a "exhausted" theme as you mentioned having 6 kids!

I know this is a difficult time for you and your friends' family, but I am glad you and Tim have each other for strength and comfort.

You have such a beautiful love story. You have to share an early picture of you two, though! I'd love to see you together at age sixteen!

I take it that Tim's partner is not doing well at all. I am so sorry to hear this. I can only imagine how you are holding Tim (and Josiah) a little tighter these days.

Just saw your 'our family' shot in the column to the right!

Sweet! I love it!
Jill

Paige,
Every day really is a gift isn't it.Some days we forget that when we struggle. The family picture was a great idea. We all take so much for granted. I hope Tim's partner is improving. You have a beautiful family. Stay strong.

God has created a beautiful love story through your two lives which He joined at such a young age. You are truly blessed with your marriage and lovely family.

I agree life is fragile. When something happens that does not make any sense we are sharply reminded that we live in a fallen and imperfect world. The Lord can do mighty things and we can ask as his children and have faith that He is in control...but it doesn't always make sense. My heart goes out to you and your family and Tim's friends family. We will continue to pray for him.


p.s. I love the new family picture

I love you post! So great to have all these pictures of the two of you together! You are a blessed woman and I am sure Tim feels equally blessed to have you in his life.:) We are still praying for your friends, I agree with Jill, that God is still in the business of miracles.Praying for you all as well! Love the family picture!

Hugs,
Kim

Funny how Tim can't even have a totally straight face even in your serious shot - he still looks like he is smiling :) You guys are so cute. Praying for the other family...
