You are blessed.

I got this Facebook post yesterday from Catalina. She's a great friend/"your dad's boss" at the church. She's been a big part of our life since before we become "Paul and Corianne", but when we started dating and decided to get married, she was one of our biggest supporters. She helped make our wedding HAPPEN. She's competitive and driven... and definitely someone that you want on your side. :)

I'm so thankful for her, and for the amazing support system that is speaking out/praying on your behalf already. I'm thankful that people we surround ourselves with are in-tune with God's promises, and are already standing in faith and speaking these amazing words over your life - while you're still growing and preparing to meet the world! OverWHELMING.

If anyone ever wonders why church is such a huge part of our lives, this is just one reason. Community. Friends that become family. A built-in support system. People to pray on your behalf; people experiencing their own God moments on a Tuesday evening drive home from church, who don't hesitate to bring you into that precious time with Him.

I'm so thankful for moments like this, and for the people we have around us - praying for us and supporting us through everything, even on a random Tuesday evening, miles apart. I'm not sure how people do it (life) otherwise. Everyone deserves this kind of love and support.

Here's the message I got from her. You should save it forever. If you don't I will, because that's my job as your mama! :) I was just on my way home from the office and I was listening to this sappy song and all of a sudden I started to think about you and Paul and the day the baby comes (insert tears here)

I got so overwhelmed with emotion...I don't know who this kid is yet, or even his name...but Im driving home visualizing how precious this moment is going to be for the both of you, sitting holding your son in your arms and Paul holding you, and I just started crying, started speaking over this little baby boy..."Favor, favor, favor. Blessings, blessings, blessings. Greater, greater, greater." I sobbed those words out loud.

I just got this overwhelming sense to speak into your son tonight. He's not even born yet, but he's going to move mountains, he will stand up for what's right, he will be a Kingdom Builder, Speak out WISDOM, make a difference. He will elevate everyone and everything around him.



Favor over him.



Blessings on him.



Greater within him.

OK. I'm done. Love ya.

Basically, what I'm saying is that if you become an incredible man of God with an abundance of wisdom and favor, then it's probably your Auntie Cat's fault. ;)
