My Three Sons!!

It has been quite a while since my last post. A whirlwind of events have transpired but I am back nevertheless! The biggest news I have to share is that we will be the proud parents of three rambunctious little boys. Yes, baby number three is a little boy.  Although my heart was set on a little girl, I have come to understand that God's agenda is what I am following. He knows exactly what/who we need in our lives.

My last week or so has been spent getting over the fact that I am not having a girl (Ha!) and changing all of my plans I had for the nursery. My Pinterest app is probably burning up all of my battery power on my phone. But I have been getting excited about the idea of raising up three little men for Christ.

Now, for a little transparency. I have to  admit that I struggled the day after I found out I was having another boy. Reality had set in.  I had so many thoughts running through my head.  "But I wanted a girl!" "How will I handle three boys?" "Lord, I don't know if  I have enough energy to raise all these boys!!"  All of these thoughts, pulled at me for the next couple of days. 

But God always has a reason for what he does. Each of our sons has a purpose for being on this Earth-- a purpose that will bring glory to the Father. A purpose that will allow God's love to be shown to many. I truly believe that. The world needs more godly men and I am thankful that God has chosen us to be stewards of his precious gifts.  What an honor it is (and will be), to be the parents of Jason, Jr., Trenton, and Baby Joshua.

Psalm 127:3-5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
They will not be ashamed
When they speak with their enemies in the gate.

Proverbs 19:21 English Standard Version (ESV)
21 Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
    but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.


The big reveal. My hubby was quite sick. He showed up just
to help open the box.

Everyone that came out to celebrate with us.

  2. Great post! I think you're right, and I'll throw in this theory: y'all need (at least) one more boy to have the amount of male energy around that'll be needed to look out for the girl that WILL be coming! Ha! :)

    The reveal gathering looks fun!

Welcome to Mama's Maze!

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by to check out my new blog—Mama's Maze. I am truly excited about starting this blog. God placed this on my heart a while ago so it is awesome to see it come to fruition.  I have never done anything like this before, so I am thrilled about venturing into uncharted territory. Writing is a passion of mine, and I love talking about the goodness of God.  So what better way to put the two together than in a blog. How did I come up with the name Mama's Maze?  Well, one day as I was pondering on what the name of this blog would be, I thought about my experiences as a mother.  I mean, after being in the game for five years now, what could I compare motherhood to?  After much thought, the word "maze" came to mind. If you have ever been in a maze or played some type of game that had one, you know it can be challenging, frustrating, and rewarding if you ever make it through.  There are so many twists and turns that it can be quite overwhelm

The Three Little Pigs

On a recent visit to our local library, I checked out a few DVDs for the boys to watch while I completed a few tasks around the house.  They fell in love with a certain DVD that contained a few popular children's stories. One story they were particularly fond of was The Three Little Pigs. After playing the DVD numerous times, the boys began to memorize the story and from then on all they could talk about (and sing about) were the three pigs and the big bad wolf.    As they attempted to tell me about this classic fable, I began to think of the story from a spiritual aspect and how it can be applied in our daily battle with Satan, who is "the Big Bad Wolf" in our lives. Much like the wolf in this story, Satan goes out "seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8). And you know what; sometimes we can exhibit some of the same the qualities as those pigs. Maybe we are like the first pig who built his house with straw- a very weak material and foundatio

The "A" Word (Part 1)

With April being Autism Awareness Month, I thought it would be the appropriate time to share our story thus far as it relates to having a child on the autism spectrum. I had planned to tell this story earlier, but it just never seemed like the right time. I wanted to be as transparent as possible in sharing our story, so this may take more than one blog post. Also, in a later post, my husband will be sharing his personal reflections on how this journey with autism has affected him as a father and husband. Please know that our story will not be the same as other families because all children with autism are not the same. It is my hope that we can encourage others who may be on this same journey, as well as enlighten others about autism spectrum disorder. So here's our story: To look at our firstborn, Jason, Jr., you would think he is an exact replica of his father, Big Jason. When he was born, there was no doubt of which parent he looked like. Jason, Jr., was our answered
