Quote from "Stepping Heavenward" by Mrs. E. Prentiss

"She says I shall now have one mouth more to fill and two feet the more to shoe, more disturbed nights, more laborious days, and less leisure or visiting, reading, music and drawing.

Well! This is one side of the story, to be sure, but I look at the other.

Here is a sweet, fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God; and the body in which dwells is worthy of all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ's name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation my other dear darlings had left me. Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her tenderest cares, to her lifelong prayers! Oh, how rich I am, how truly, wondrously blest!"

My new grandbaby boy Jackson was born Saturday weighing in at 7# 12oz, 19" long! He's sooo beautiful. Mama and baby are doing fabulous!!

Also, we found out our new baby will be due February 7th. Making this uncle much younger than his niece or nephew. When my computer gets back home from gateway, I'll post some pics of Jackson and the little fella I'm carrying. I wasn't going to find out what this baby was but it was a bit too obvious in the sonogram to not notice :).

I'm beginning a new Bible Study on 10/20 from the book "Created to be His Helpmeet" by Debi Pearl. You can join by going to my yahoo group link on this page.
