I once was lost, but now I'm found.

God answers prayer!

Tonight I got a taste of the feeling of relief and joy that Jesus described in these verses:

"Suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.' In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents." Luke 15:8-10

Remember how I mentioned in my last post that I had lost the video with Chandler just after birth on it? This has plagued me since we were in the hospital. So this evening I started watching the tape that's in the camcorder, from the moment I took the full tape out and put this new one in. I noticed everything around the hospital room to look for clues as to where the tape could've been laid. Then I noticed Chance's diaper bag, which hasn't made it home since that's been at Nana & Big Daddy's. So I called Nana and she checked the bag, and Voila!! My precious memories have been recovered!

Another part of the tape that I can't wait to see is when we introduced Charlie and Chance to Chandler! I will even try to figure out how to get it online so you can see it. Talk about a precious moment! And speaking of introductions, I also managed to make Chandler's baby announcements - it only took me a month! Whaddaya think? If you want me to mail you one, please email me ( your address and I'll send one your way.

Until then, I'll be praising the Lord for His many gifts this evening - including that lost tape!

How wonderful to hear that you found the video. :) Those are priceless. :) I hope that you all are doing well. I want to come by and see you all again (with Rachel of course). I 'll plan a day and time when I see you on Tuesday (God-willing). I am sorry for not getting back to you about lunch on Tuesday after class... mom wanted to eat subway and then go use a giftcard at La Cantera that she got for Christmas. Maybe we'll be able to go another time. :)
God bless you!!!
Love, Melony

How great you found the lost tape. Pretty clever you thought to look around the hospital room on the 2nd tape for clues! I hope you get to post some of those videos sometime!

Isn't it wonderful how God answers our prayers and those things that are precious to us are precious to Him too, especially when we give him the thanks and glory!

BTW: you've been tagged by me

Thank the Lord about the tape! Love the announcement - the photos are just beautiful. We are planning on getting a point-and-shoot also, Michael tells me, "Not every picture has to be a portrait." Guess he's right. :)
