An Early Arrival

Leo is our second grandson. It seems he just couldn’t stand the thought of missing out on his big brother’s first birthday party. His arrival was scheduled for late in February but with some help from Mom and her doctors he made it in time for Casey’s party later today. Both he and his mom are healthy and well and we all praise and thank God for this great blessing.

Our thanks go out to all of you for your prayers and encouragement. We appreciate it so much. Leo’s early arrival caused quite a stir here this week. There were so many things scheduled for this month that had to be accomplished in short order and without the normal oversight and direction of his parents. I had previously reported that things were a bit hectic here but in Corry’s words, “Hectic was a breeze” compared to what followed. Most of you know that Corry is my angelic wife but she really earned her wings this week! ;-)

God has blessed me to be able to look around. I look around when things seem out of control to see how He is working in the lives of all involved. I saw my daughter’s faith being tried and I watched as Corry’s faith was made stronger. I even caught a glimpse of my own reflection as I was once more made aware of how dependant we all are on His providence.

God is so good!

Preacher thanks so much to you and Amy for your love and kindness. You're really salt and light for us and so many others I'm sure. May God bless your sweet family.

Brian thanks brother! We took on the Dutch names so I'm Opa and Corry is Oma. ;-)

Amen Brother Ron! We'll all have to take that houseboat for a float one day. I honestly wonder if we'll enjoy those type things together during the Kingdom reign. ;-)

Quite a relief too Bill! (hehe) Maybe you'd like to join us with Ron on a float & fishing trip? ;-)

Audrey thanks so much dear sister! Where would we be without you? You brighten our lives every day. We are so grateful for you!

Bobby thanks! ;-)

To save you the trouble, I just pulled a cigar out of my private stash.

He's a fine-looking boy. And a sharp dresser to boot.

May your tribe continue to increase, my brother. Please offer my congratulations to April and Ray, too.

Hi KC,
Congratulations! We are so glad that he's here and looking so pretty. (Can I say that about a baby boy?)
We thank God that everyone is healthy. We were worried for ya'll.

BTW- That fish picture is one of the ugliest things I've seen in a long time. Yikes!

Dorse thanks but please set aside one of those cigars for me later!

His Dad dressed him for that pic and I think you can tell. It's a guy thing (hehe).

Thanks much for the great blessing brother.

Sis. Beth thanks so much for the kind words and for your concern. We really appreciate you both so much.

Pretty is a fine word as long as he's dressed in such an obviously masculine way (grin).

That gar really looks prehistoric, doesn't it? You should see one swim along side your boat so close you can reach out and touch it and then take notice that it's as long as your boat is. It's also nice to think about those guys swimming with you in the river. ;-)
