in the midst of so much chaos in haiti the very subject of life remains a mystery to me. no matter what, life goes on. babies are born. loved ones get found. children are adopted. seasons continue to change.
the above photo yes indeed does belong to me. that is the newest development, if you will, in my life. this family's new years was rocked with the announcement that our family was about to expand again. not a plan we purposefully put into action. a gift and miracle from the LORD none-the-less.
i am encouraged and rejuvenated by the sheer joy of my daughters at this news. they are tickled pink at the prospect of a baby to love and mother. a true serendipity for sure. my son was not so sure at first. he was pretty content with 'just us' as he phrased it. i can relate to that emotion. he has since embraced the idea better.
so i share the news with you, my online friends and family. i covet your prayers. i am not as young as i use to be. but everything remains new still. this is a completely new journey then when i was younger with little ones running around. my outlook is new. my hope is new. my trust, is definitely a new one.

my God bless your day.
