How Great is our God...

"Be Still,and Know that I am God;I will be exalted among the nations,I will be exalted in the earth."Psalm 46:10

Mr Smiles... he is holding the finalization decree. We didn't think he realized what was going on;however, he asked the lawyer to hold the paper and wouldn't let go. He carried the paper out of court,out of the building and to the car. He spent the whole ride home looking at the paper. I am Bebi(Levi) Benjamin Smith!
Our Precious Little Boy...
Daddy took Levi and Mommy out for a celebration, and what a better way is there to celebrate than with ice cream. (Thank You Ms Shannon and Lili for staying with the other kiddos.) Just when we didn't think this week could get any better...with Mandy's baptism...,it did! Yesterday was Levi's day in court. It marked the final judgement decree, and Levi is now officially a Smith. We are rejoicing! We are certainly blessed by our awe inspiring, mountain moving, family making God!
...and to make things even better...Levi arrived in our room this morning,threw his arms around me, and of his own free will announced..."I love you,my mommy!" It certainly doesn't get any better than that!
Thank You Lord for this Precious Little One and for all of my precious gifts from you!!
