Off we went to the game in Omaha, NE (Fri. 13 January 2012) to see her game. To have a fun filled weekend of surprises! It was so worth every effort. We so enjoyed the moments of the thrill of anticipation and SHOCK! What a thrill! She never knew! She LOVED it so much it became one of her status remarks on Facebook ~ "BEST DAY EVER!"
"Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. 4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. 5 Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court." Psalm 127: 3-ff

May the lord continue to Bless You as he continues to bless us.

Where it all began Early Spring 2011 with the poser fun!

We're thrilled to be getting a brother!
"Awww Jordy and HR!!"
71 Days it is HERE!
We are putting leg work together with the wonderful family she is gaining at the same time!
Thank YOU ABBA, FATHER, GOD!!!!!
and Thank You R and P for his heart grown to mature as a Man of God!
So many times there is so much to be grateful for! In our western culture I still cling to the mighty hand of God's outstretched hand! One thing that is really bothering me lately is the fact that there are so many diseases. The one I HATE IS CANCER!!!! I ABSOLUTELY HATE IT!!!
It is a dividing rod in so many ways and now I have heard of two possibilities of prescious people who have been going through it's vile venom!
I realize that God is in control of life. I know he is more than gracious! I believe he is still soverign and I know that he is the comfort of all comfort. I know so many times I take for granted the health given unto me. I rest in his arms and through some troubling news once again of this wicked aliment with a dear loved one, I will continue to lay my head in HIS LAP and pray, pray, pray. I LOVE YOU Abba, Father, MY GOD, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit and in you I will TRUST and BELIEVE even more in YOU
Psalm 139 You have shown me your ever loving arms and the way that you are in control! Thank You Abba, Thank You!
Remembering that "Four" is a golf term and we had four daughters for 10 years. Then the Lord blessed us with a wonderful package during a wonderful year working in the school district with amazing co workers that I am still very close to and will ALWAYS Cherish! Matter of fact I am currently caring for the One I had been praying for an open womb!
Four teachers since that time have had precious children. Ang, Julia, Adriana and now Shelly. Yup we all worked together in the same wing. We laughed a lot, started a book club, had a prayer club, and had the Lord Bless all our wombs with children. Although I was teased for my matured life producing once again and now the last isn't all that far removed from having hers near the same wonder years. ;-)
Four more Son-In-Loves being prayed over to be answered just like the ONE we are gaining soon, yes VERY SOON! ;-)
Four - Kent is the eldest of four and I knew I wanted four or more because of them.
Four - My Mommy has four sisters. Just like my girls have Four SISTERS.
Four - One of the Lord's significant Numbers! AMEN!!!
Philippians 4 is loaded with words of WONDERFUL NEWS! Well for that matter sixty-six books of the BIBLE have many ways to celebrate "four".
There is only Praise for this new year! There is FOUR NEW CELEBRATIONS taking place under our "family roof" in 2012 and we sing praises to the LORD!
I have grown to Love Family More because of the tragedy of separation. I have grown to learn the need for me to forgive more than I will ever understand. I have learned JESUS is all that is worthy of Love, regardless and with out expecting anything in return. I've learned the joy of receiving the gift of a Son-In-Love and many answered prayers of and for him, his parents, his sibling, and his grandparents over the course of twenty one years specifically! Knowing and believing he is answering the prayers of four others as well!
I've learned that absolute truth has high costs. 2011 has been amazing and hard. It was also realized due to sadness one year and heart the past two Christmases there were no letters/card/pictures taken and sent out so . . . This year it will be NEW YEARS CARDS to those I have current addresses for.
I have learned to say, "I am sorry, I was wrong, will you forgive me and I LOVE YOU much much more frequently!" and I have also learned the beauty of life and how short it really is. I have learned that the Lord is working on my heart more and more everyday. Although the lessons learned have been stretching, HE is continually teaching me to look for and pray for the good that there is in people. HE is their Savior, not me. So this new year of 2012 I just give him my life. I know that I am not perfect and have never claimed to be, I am a sinner in need of a Savior and that I can ALWAYS PRAY no matter what or who tries to dictates differently. For His is the KING of Kings and the LORD of Lords. He is the I AM. He is Jehovah Jirah. HE IS THE SAVIOR of the WORLD! I Believe in HIM and will continue to LOVE HIM, and FOLLOW HIM.
This is a NEW YEAR!
But MY HEART IS HIS and will continue to be HIS.
I still pray for you, your health and your futures. I will continue to pray for each and everyone of you because . . . I LOVE YOU and I WILL ALWAYS CARE! For my immediate loved ones ~ ALL IN COLORADO, ALL IN ILLINOIS, ALL IN ARIZONA, ALL IN IOWA, ALL IN MISSOURI (yes to OUR IMMEDIATE FAMILY) I LOVE YOU!
