what's new!

Like I said before so much has happened since I was on here last. I was pregos when i last blogged. That Blessing is now in the arms of my God and Savior, as I learned about the loss through miscarriage. A few mths following that, I become pregos again and was able to bring that blessing into the world. (which makes 5 blessing here on earth) Before my bundle arrived we learned of the sickness that my step-father was unknowingly fighting. Doctors told my mother that he had pancreatic cancer. While we look back and can see that he was probably fighting this for some time, it was new knowledge of what was making him sick. Within about one mths time of finding this cancer, Gary went to his home in Heaven. We all knew of Gary's love for The Lord, and it comes as a great comfort. His company is missed, but the impact he had on those he loved was strong and deep.

A short time after the loss of a dear grandfather, our family was preparing for the birth of our new baby! I think my children asked most everyday, if that would be "the day"! may 10 we received a new baby boy! (our first time not knowing what sex the baby would be) Like all days that babies are born, we will not forget that day! The Lord has Blessed us beyond what we deserve!

Now we have taken up a couple of goats (didn't see that one coming!)which we just love and I think will be a wonderful addition to our little family "farm" adventure. Garden and flowers didn't do as well as the weeds this year, but the baby is growing strong and big, so that gets me off the hook there!-)

Our family is always growing and my prayer is that much of that growth is in Wisdom- in all areas. So here's to "back to blogging!" and may I gain back some readers (who will leave comments!-) Through this blog, I desire-if it be God's will, to meet/share with others. To gain encouragement and to be encouraging~

Great hearing from you. I need to start a blog. I still put everything on paper. Only myself and family read it. I am old fashioned I guess. There is something about the feel of paper and a pen.
