On this amazing day

I get to nurture seven children in my home.

Three born to me, children of love—

Angel Boy, for one more day—

Little twin sisters, arrived last week to stay for a time—

announcment

(yes, this is an announcement)

An unborn child, due to join us in December.

My heart is full to bursting.
The Lord has given and taken away, blessed be His name.

Happy Mother’s Day, to all women who pour love every day into the heart of a child.

Seven is symbolic of perfection. God speaks to us – sometimes He uses numbers. Bless the Lord, o my soul! Rejoicing with you!

A Mother’s Day to tuck into your heart & ponder on for many years! God’s grace and peace be with you as you bid farewell to Angel Boy today. And twin girls?! I’ll bet Kelly is having fun with sisters! Can’t wait to see them this week. 🙂

I am challenged by your fullness of joy even as you walk this imperfect journey and give deeply into some very difficult situations.

Those pudgy little legs and toes….!!!!

Congratulations (again!!) on that little strawberry sized baby. 🙂 My orange is sending hugs…

Shaunda – you don’t cease to make me laugh. I might resort to forever calling your baby “Orange”. Hilarious.

“We are complete in Him” and in the place He puts us we can find joy . . . Then He adds even more! I’ve never met you in person, but I read your blog from Va. I’m so happy for you and Ryan. God bless you!
