New Name, New Look

When I started this blog it was all about Elijah and our adventures. So we named it Elijah's Adventures, but it's not just about him anymore! I've been wanting to change the name of the blog since Ethan arrived but i'm really no good at coming up with catchy names off the top of my head. I wish I were, but it's evidently just not one of my gifts. =)

As i was thinking about it I knew I wanted the name to point to the Lord. It's because of Him that I am who I am and have what I have. He's been there for our family through the rough spots and has richly blessed us with so much.

I've come to realize how good He really is. He is kind and loving. Everything He does is in our best interest. Even when it may hurt us for a while. And we may not understand why He is doing what He's doing, we can trust His heart that He really does have our good in mind.

It's also my desire that what ever our story is that it will bring Him glory. I pray that what ever challenges come our way that we will handle them with the grace He gives us and that they would bring Him honor and praise.

As we learn to live more and more like Jesus every day may we become smaller and let Him become larger. So that when people look at us they can see Him!

So that's where the name of our blog came from. For Our Good and His Glory

We'll keep it for a while and see how it goes. It may change again in the future, you never know. I've never been one to get stuck in a rut! =) As you've probably noticed from the frequent back ground changes!

I love you all.

Thank you
