UPDATE: Someone asked if I re-designed my blog myself. No...no, no, no. haha I like to think I'm good with a computer, but not THAT good. An anonymous blog-reader deserves the credit. He/she contacted Designer Blogs, and they, in turn, contacted me telling me that a blog-reader had purchased a gift certificate for me to change my blog up (after I posted about wanting to change it up and include both of our boys). So, thank you - anonymous blog-reader. :) I'm so humbled by your generosity!
Don't worry! You're in the right place! Don't close out your screen!
My blog has a new look, and I love it! I still need to work on the sidebar, but I really like the new look!
And I did change the name of the blog....so it's no longer "Keeping Up With the Joneses." With the turn that our life has taken, I thought a new name was in order. I wrote about this title a while back and how although Ayden is no longer with us here, we still see traces of him everywhere we go. Every day...in special moments....and passing glances...Ayden is always with us. There will forever be traces of Ayden in our life.
The verse that I chose for the top has become one of my absolute favorites - because through our grief and over the almost-2-years of learning to live life again....HOPE has been the one thing that kept us going. And I want to share that hope with every person I meet! Because of Christ and His sacrifice, we can live with hope...the hope of Heaven; the hope of meeting our loved ones again.
Thank you all for sticking with us over these past 2 years. I'm still in awe that anyone actually reads this little blog of mine. Thank you for sharing Ayden's story with your friends, loved ones, and perfect strangers! We are so thankful for you all....your prayers...and your encouragement on the bad days...and the good days.
Have a wonderful day!
