A New Little One Joins Our Crew!

So we had a surprise early visit from our new little man! He was supposed to be delivered on October 17th but had other arrival plans. We are all smitten especially the girls. They want to love and cuddle the new little life God has blessed us with.
I get a lot of comments after people ask how old everyone one is...all the kiddos are just about 4 years apart. The comments go something like, "wow you planned that out perfectly". Now I'm not a witty quick to respond person. What usually comes out is no I didn't really mastermind any of this, it just worked out that way. What I'd love people to know is that we are not in control and wish to leave the blessing of children up to God. I also wish people knew how hard of a journey bringing life into this world for us is. Each of our children here with us is a rainbow baby and preceded with the loss of a precious little life not destined for this world. Pregnancy is a difficult and painful journey for me as I have constant contractions early on and have to supplement with injections through out to maintain our precious little life.

Every family has different struggles and blessings. For some, the begetting of children is easy and for others it's hard or impossible. Whatever your story is, you can know that our sweet Lord has allowed the struggles and blessings to benefit your journey home to Heaven. Hardly anyone wants to hear that life is lined with struggle here, but the reality of it all is that Jesus came to show us the way and His life was full of hardship and struggles. So if we are to pick up our cross and follow Him, there will be some struggles along the way, but nothing that He can't see us though or even carry us for part of the way. Life is not only about the struggles, but joys too! God determines to fill our souls with joy to lift us up and also bless us amid the struggles.
This precious new baby is such a joy for our family. He melts everyone's heart and brings a smile to all our faces. I am over come with love for this little fellow. All the struggle and pain for the last 9 months & surgery starts to melt away and I am so blessed. Everyone is blessed, and there is also a big opening of hearts as we all have to give a little more of ourselves to make room for our new addition. Children provide lots of opportunity for growth in selflessness, compassion, & service to others.

Thank you Jesus for our little blessings!
