So...you knew this was coming.....meet baby G!

Isn't he the CUTEST?!


He is almost 10 months old and a ball full of energy! :)



I can honestly say I have absolutely NO trouble falling to sleep at night! 
I am plum worn out! :)

So here's the scoop on our Baby G....I know ya'll are dying to hear the details....





I was just playing with you...we have not added to our family. LOL!  I can hear you letting out the big sigh of relief....:)

Over a month  ago we received a phone call that my nephew's girlfriend had been in a serious car accident. So serious that she and her mom were taken to Hershey Medical Center and her two nieces were airflighted there. Her one niece, age 7, was released from the hospital but is in a wheelchair. The other niece, age 6, was in a coma for days but has since awoke but will have to relearn everything from eating, to walking to even knowing who her family members are.....so very sad. Please keep her in prayer...her name is Destiny.
Chrissi, baby G's mommy (and my nephew's girlfriend), was in Hershey Medical for several weeks and has since been moved to a rehab facility to try and learn to walk again. Her pelvis, among other bones, were shattered.  She has a very long road of recovery before her. 

So we have been watching baby G during the days. He was able to crawl a tiny bit before but the first week here he took off crawling all over the place! Then just this week, he took his first steps along the couch! How cool is that?!  The kids and I are really enjoying having a baby in the house again. However, my energy levels aren't what they used to be. LOL! 

It's been a challenge to figure out how to get all the necessary things done in a day BUT I am so thankful to have this time with him. 
He loves when Samuel does itsy bitsy spider on his legs and belly. 
He loves watching Nolan ride his bike and do crazy tricks. 
He loves when Gabriella sits beside him and talks to him. 
He loves Kyalynn singing to him 
and he loves Connor making funny faces at him. :) 

Our time watching him is winding down as we have only committed to this month of September yet. :(

It has been a great joy and I'm so thankful I was able to quickly step in and help. He will be in wonderful hands...his pappy will be taking over his care and I will only help as needed.

However, I have a feeling there will be tears all around when he doesn't show up in the morning for us to watch him.

What a little cutie! It's a shame he doesn't get any attention from any of your kiddos! ;) I love the picture of all of your littles around the baby. So sweet. Praying for his momma and the others involved in the accident.

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
