My new niece...

Thought y'all may wanna see a pic of my new niece, Elsie Kate!

Michael and Jessica have been trying for a few years to have a baby and God has wonderfully open the door for them to adopt little Elsie Kate!!!
It is such a blessing!

(at this time Jessica & Michael are not posting pix on fb... But they said we could share as much as we would like via email!)

She is growing strong & healthy! Thanks for the prayers.

These are some of the first pics...
I will post more pics in a little while... but here are a few to wet your appetite.

God has blessed us with adding so many new additions to our family!


Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him!

’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
And to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus says the Lord!”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him!
How I've proved him o'er and o'er!
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust him more!
I'm so glad I've learned to trust Him,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend.
And to know that He is with me,
Will be with me to the end!...
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus
O for grace to trust Him more!
There have been several things that have happened recently that have grieved us deeply concerning Michael's ministry. This song is heavy on my heart and something that I want to be constantly reminded of during this time. 
Thank you to all those who are praying for us. 
We feel the prayers and we DO Trust in Jesus!

Lila says deer! ... Sorta.

I said "Lila look at the deer!"
She said: "ogg" (her word/ sound for DOG"!)
So proud & So cute!
