Nancy shared a blog post that I just read this morning and it reinforced for me the miracle of love for my own children and now we are expecting our #13 grandchild in a few months!
I know that LIFE itself involves the most amazing miracle of all, yet as Nancy shares our hearts are changed and our love made bigger!
"There is no doubt that motherhood and being around these children has changed me, body and soul. My fears and dreams and hopes have all changed, mostly in ways I never would have expected. With each new child our family is changed as well. Each new personality wedges it’s way in among us, pulls more love out of us than we thought possible and squirms their way into the deepest corner of our hearts." Nancy
New Life certainly does change things in this world, and foremost in our domestic Church/family! We are so excited to welcome our newest member in May. Rose and I were talking that her baby girl cousin could come close to her birthday, and we were just talking about going down to see Nancy in her new home and Maria in hers in Missouri in early summer when Nancy's little girl will probably have her baptism. "That is when I think it will work out to get down there.. the kids will be out of school and we will all want to go and meet the new baby, and to celebrate the baptism will be a wonderful celebration for us to share as a big family!" So true, Ruth!
Much today in the readings is about valuing LIFE... producing fruit and then giving it to God as He is in control! In our family it is called being open to LIFE and raising LIGHTS for the world...
May we give the fruit raised in our vineyard to the Landlord, Jesus, and know that he will bring it to bear more fruit - the Way, the Truth and The LIFE!
Jesus, love makes the world go round and gives us what we need to go forward down the narrow path carrying/dragging our Most Cherished Cross and finding LIFE/LOVE/LIGHT. Jesus, we trust in you. Bless-bless, Barb
Want a good book to give you Truth - this is it!
Love is the answer and comes from our Faith in Jesus and His Bride, The Church!

In the tree house!
Rose and I just noticed a new calf is born when we look at Cow TV on the computer!
