Blessings are falling indeed…

I love that our kids gave thought to their children’s names. Piper was a nod to John Piper, Gabe was a nod to missionary John Gibson Paton and now our newest addition as of last night, Liv Carolina, has a beautiful meaning as well, which I hope you’ll check out for yourself. The pictures alone are worth the click to Megan’s blog This Beautiful Truth. Spoken like a true grammy, I suppose. 

I apologize for my sporadic blogging lately. As you can imagine, things are wonderfully chaotic here and we’re loving every minute of it. 

To God be the glory! I’m very thankful for our boys, daughter-in-laws, and three grandchildren. Also thankful we have a farmer’s table and benches like the Waltons—’cause we’re gonna need it! 

For you created my inmost being; 
you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
Psalm 139: 13,14

Gabriel…What An Angel!

We welcomed little Gabriel Paton to the family on Saturday and look forward to welcoming another granddaughter this week!

While discussing a particular home we’d toured a couple weeks ago Brian and I remarked at the same time how we could envision our grandchildren running through the upstairs hallway (the layout was quite cool.) In that moment, I was reminded of my own grandmother’s house. It was, as described in one of my poems, a pocket-sized home—but there was nothing small about her love for our family. 

I understood her kind of love when I first laid eyes on Piper, and now Gabe, and soon, another sweet baby girl. 

Thank You, Lord.

But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children… Psalm 103:7
