“Joy is the serious business of Heaven.” –  C. S. Lewis 

Tonight we celebrated. The girls dressed themselves…Super Girl and Elsa, of course. The boys served us and played tune after tune as we all joined together for the most fun dance party we’ve had in quite a while. Seeing the boys take their little sisters hand in hand to twirl them around the kitchen as though they were dancing in a royal princess ball is a moment I never want to forget. We ate cake and blew out candles and, well, we celebrated because she is celebrating, too. 

Happiest Birthday, our darling Belle…we’ve learned that joy and grief gloriously intermingle but it’s JOY that is winning today. 

Bear made the sweetest birthday sign for Belle.  He has the most tender heart and I just adore how he loves others.

Super Girl and Elsa ready for the party!

Gracious, am I ever thankful for these four.  This is not the story that I would have written or ever chosen but God has given me deep peace and great joy through the pain.  And, the best is still yet to come!
