Sunday Thoughts and PICTURES!!

Well, the Williams family has a picture...hooray! Our new friend Laura came to our house this morning and did a fantastic job capturing some picutes of us. She was kind enough to share some with me before they are printed and has given me permission to put them on the blog. She is an up and coming photographer, please check out her blog at to learn more about her photography. We ended up taking most of the shots in our bedroom because of the beautiful natural light and fact that there is no "kid junk" to be found! You'll notice Eli and Cara doing their silly smile in one of the pictures. I LOVE the way they turned out. It is impossible to get catalog-smiles from a family of 6 with 4 under 2, so we are more than satisfied with the more natural look.

We were done with the shoot by 10, so I packed up Cara and went to church. I've been really missing time to praise and worship, so it did my heart so much good to be there today. The teens led the service and it was a wonderful blessing to see them using their talents to the glory of God. One of the songs we sung was "Jesus, Lover of My Soul." I've always loved this song, but never more than this morning;

Jesus, Lover of my soul.
Jesus I will never let You go.
You've taken me, from the miry clay.
Set my feet upon the rock, and now I know.
I love You, I need You,
though my world may fall, I'll never let you go...

So many people say "how are you doing, how are you handling all of this." Truth be told, I feel like our world has fallen. I'm trying every day to just put one foot in the front of the other. I'm trying desperately to choose to focus on the good God is putting in our lives: the wonderful miracles I have in Eli, Cara, Brady, and Allie (Matt too), the amazing support of friends, family, and strangers, and the hope I find in God's promises. As we approach this second round of chemo, please be praying in the following areas:
1. Pray that God will comfort Brady while in the hospital.
2. Pray that the chemo will destroy this cancer beyond all expectation.
3. Pray that Matt and I will continue to find strength in God and in each other.
4. Pray for our wonderful parents and friends who are helping us take care of our precious family while we are away.
5. Pray that we will have a clear direction after this round of chemo pertaining to surgery at Sloan Kettering versus more chemo.

That's a lot of prayers, but I know God is listening if we just keep them coming!!! Love to all of you...


  1. Matt and Megan-gorgeous pictures! I LOVE Cara's face in the 2nd one-pure baby joy! I really like how on the "How You Can Help" link, you added prayer to that list and put it at #1. That really is the #1 thing isn't?

  2. Those pictures are beautiful! She did a fabulous job.

  3. My heart goes out for your son and family. Im a triplet mommy too. And I pray that the good Lord will heal your son completely and give your family health, strenght and happiness.

  4. Hi Meg and Matt,

    I'm so glad you were able to get those pictures! They look great--very "real." :) I especially like the black and white one because everyone (even little Allie) looks silly and happy there. :)


  5. The black & white one is my favorite--what a beautiful family!

  6. Hi Friends, were able to hook up with Laura! Isn't she wonderful? I can't wait to see all of the other shots. Meg, keep leaning because our AWESOME God has not moved and will continue to be a solid foundation for you. We continue to pray and trust that there are lots of miracles to come.

    Love ya lots,

  7. Megan and Matt,
    What a beautiful family God has blessed you with.
    Prayers and love as you prepare for tomorrows chemo.
    Think about the "Footprints in the Sand": Jesus is carrying you through this, so rest your head on his shoulder and let him carry the load!
    Thank you again for sharing your faith journey. You WILL make it!
    Love, Deb R.

  8. What a beautiful family!!! Cara and Eli are adorable with their silly smiles. Allison is getting so big, and Brady looks so handsome with that half smile. You are great parents and it shows. Keep leaning on Jesus as he is there for you. Thank you Matt for your insight on what you can and cannot handle. I never thought of it that way, thank you for sharing. As you go into tomorrow, remember Jesus is right there beside you and will care for you and strengthen you, comfort you and bring you through it. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Yvonne
