Special Announcement!



As a mother of five blessings, I sometimes get those looks.  You know, those looks of pity and the question, "Why?"  Despite negative or sympathetic reactions, we believe that each and everyone of our children are a gift. Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone thought this way?




I am so excited to tell you, that after two stillborn sons and a miscarriage, we are expecting another gift from our Heavenly Father!

Oh, the children jumped out of their seats when we told them, full of excitement and happiness!  Their reactions were so sweet and innocent.

Their joy fed into my joy, which made it even more special!  Of course, the boys want another boy, and the girls want another girl, but, deep down I know that they really just want a baby to hold, a living, breathing baby.

That is my prayer request.  To be able to hold this little one, with pink, warm cheeks and a healthy cry.  To feel his/her little fingers grip mine.  To watch this child grow and become a warrior for Christ!  What a gift that would be!

It is time to slow down a little for me.  That is no easy task, in fact, I find it almost impossible.  Yesterday we planted 100 asparagus and 60 grapevines!  Farm life makes it a little difficult to step back and let others do it. Sometimes things just need to get done, now!  But, I am praying that He will give me the wisdom to know when enough is enough.

This is my official announcement, even to my extended family!  I wonder who will be the first to find out?  I think I might have an idea.........
