Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
One of my favorite things about Autumn is collecting acorns. I have loved them since I was a child. We have them all over our property, but I still cannot resist gathering a few and displaying them in our home.
With these scary and uncertain times right now, it's a great reminder to me that from a small acorn seed a beautiful oak grows to become a giant strong tree that has weathered the storm. It doesn't worry about tomorrow, it just lives a glorious life today with the purpose of giving shade, providing food for the squirrels and homes for the birds. It beautifully withstands the seasons even suffering sometimes until that one day when it's time on this earth is over. That is how my faith must be.
"He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and it is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit." Jeremiah 17:8
I would like to introduce you to my precious new grandson, Finley Stewart!
He arrived 10 days early on 9/13 and weighed 7 lbs 7 oz and was 22 inches long!
We had quite a scare with Mamma's health which ended in an emergency C-section. Praise the Lord both mom and baby are fine!
This was the first moment I held the little guy, it was love at first sight!
Rachelle is a trooper and Grayson is such a great support. I love this picture of her resting while he holds Finley.
They are so happy! They have been home for two weeks now and everyone is adjusting wonderfully!
I thank the Lord so much for this incredible blessing of this darling baby boy. My heart is so full!
"For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." Psalm 139:13-16
