It's a girl!

We are overjoyed with the news that grandbaby #6 is a little girl!  She will make her grand entrance some time in mid to late February.  The doctor said she looks healthy and everything looks fine.  Praise God.  Two years ago on June 29, 2007, Callie Grace was born into Heaven.  We never got the joy of knowing her.  Then along came Corban Boyd, and his first month of life was touch and go.  You would never know that now - he is so hard to keep up with.  He is a true miracle and such a joy.  Now little baby girl will join the family.  I am humbled at the Creator's blessings to our family.

Clinging to my Help!

Psalm 63:7,8 (NIV) - Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.  My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.  The Message, 73:8 - I hold onto you for dear life and you hold me steady as a post.

When did I lose my song?  I am humbled by the above scripture that suggests to me I should be singing because of His help.  I must admit that the past several years have been such a struggle that a song has not been on my lips.  How I long to find my voice again and begin singing His praises.  I love The Message version - I have been holding on for dear life and He has been faithful to hold me steady.  How I praise my Lord for His help.  I'm ready to burst forth with song!
