Today is the day after Christmas, Dec. 26th to all of you. But to the VanTilburg family...it is a special day. "For unto us, a child was born"...24 years ago by the name of Corey Patrick. So for my blog today, I wish to honor Corey by posting some cute and fun pictures of his "growing" up years. It is hard to decide which pictures to post...so I will just post my favorites and it is still way too many. Oh well...what are blogs for anyways? For me, sharing the good news...Good news how God has blessed us with this son, my "Phoenix" arising from the ashes. So that being said, here is the first picture I took on Christmas morning. This is a hibiscus plant in winter mode. The salvia (which I thought was an annual) is rising up and around and through the dormant branches, life that continues to bloom, despite it's harsh surroundings and experiences, a picture of Corey. blooming still to bring many more blessings, I am sure, for God is Good!.
Timmy, meet your new brother, Corey!
