Henryk turned two months old today!
The following pictures came Wednesday morning when Michael decided to take Henryk into Lily’s room. Lily let Henryk put his head on her Thomas pillow! What a sweet sister. It was a fun morning. We think Henryk knew the significance of getting a chance to lay on the Thomas pillow 🙂
The hymn below “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty” has been a song on Michael’s heart lately and he and Lily have been singing it together every day. Many of the lines in the song have deep Truths behind them and have been a source of encouragement as the song has pointed our hearts to ultimate joy and life not in this world but in Christ.
We are treasuring our time with Henryk and are capturing some sweet memories. Henryk has a special way of connecting with each of us. For Michael, it is Henryk responding to his voice and always calming down whenever he is laying on his chest. For Lily, it is Henryk’s panic look that he gets when she comes near as he already knows that you cannot predict what Lily may do with “her broder”. For Emily, it’s the connection with nursing and carrying Henryk in the Katan. We love him so much.
We are thankful we got two months with him and trust that tomorrow there will be new grace from Jesus for whatever the day may hold.
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
The King of creation
O my soul, praise Him
For He is thy health and salvation
All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near
Praise Him in glad adoration
Praise to the Lord
Who o’er all things so wonderfully reigneth
Shelters thee under His wings
Yea, so gladly sustaineth
Hast thou not seen how thy desires e’er have been
Granted in what He ordaineth
Praise to the Lord
Who doth prosper they work and defend thee
Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee
Ponder anew what the Almighty can do
If with His love He befriend thee
Praise to the Lord, O let all that is in me adore Him
All that hath life and breath
Come now with praises before Him
Let the ‘amen’ sound from His people again
Gladly for aye we adore Him
