As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

This week, a new baby was added to our family.  Around here we think that there is no such thing as "just another baby"!  We are beyond excited about this new creation, this sweet bundle, this unique person whom her parents have named Isabel. 

Isabel is the first child of my niece Amy and her husband Rick, the first grandchild of my sister Linda.  (Did you get all that?)  And she is a beauty, don't you think? 

Of course, we couldn't wait to meet her, so on her second day of life, Kati, Bekah, Mom, and I drove over to visit. 

My favorite picture is this one of the beautiful new mom and her precious girl...
