Great news!!!!

Psalm 127:3 "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."

We have some very exciting things going on in our lives at the present time. I know that some will be judgmental since we have already caught flack from certain members of family and from some friends. But I want to say that I am very proud of the choices our children are making.

Our son Ronnie and his wife Jessica are expecting a baby due October 14th. We rejoice with them and are praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy. They have had 4 miscarriages and so this is a bit scary for them. Help us pray for them that the Lord would allow all to go well.

Also...our daughter Kristina and her husband Josh are expecting and the approximate due date is October 29th. Yes...that means we have two grandbabies due within two weeks of one another. We are VERY excited!!!

The grandbabies we have now are such a joy and to know that God is adding more is such a blessing!!! We are thankful that our children have chosen to trust God with their children. God is adding to their families....and we rejoice with them about that.

Also....after all that Michelle has been through with her ex-boyfriend and father of our grandson kicking her out of their apartment with no warning...she is back home with us and God has placed someone in her life that loves her and loves her son as much as if he were his own. And Michael even looks like him which is amazing to us all. Michelle is very happy and they plan to be married in a few months. God is working in their lives and for that we are VERY thankful. Michelle has been through more than anyone can ever know....so don't judge her for how things have happened in her life. Be happy for her because she deserves it!!! We love Aaron (her current boyfriend) and know that God sent him to her. He is saved and faithful to church!!! And that is a HUGE plus!!!

God has been SO good to our family and I can't praise Him enough for all He has done and is doing.

praise the Lord for such testimony :-) I am normally just reading your blog, but don't know why today I was actually compelled to put a comment.

So glad for all of the good news. I will be praying for Jessica and Ronnie that all goes well with the pregnancy. Happy that Michelle has found happiness for her and Michael. Aaron sounds like a wonderful young man. Congratulations as well to Kristina and Josh. God is good.

My heart soars for you Julie and for our kids! You are showing true Christian love and parental love to your daughter. God will bless you for it! I read something recently that your post here reminded me of. I'll try to find it and send the link to you.

Never give up!

God is faithful, and can even turn our sin and its negative consequences around when we return to Him. Like Hosea 14 talks about: you "shall grow as the lily," but your "beauty shall be as the olive tree" (ie. Sin leaves scars, but our beauty to God is based on our fruitfulness to Him, not on whether our whole life has been spotless).

For a better explanation, you may appreciate this sermon that I used yeterday to cap off our series on Hosea at the Mission: Hope For Backsliders

VERY IMPORTANT!
