If you read my most recent post you might be wondering . .
Who are the happy parents of Blessing # 12 ?
It is Kati and Andrew who are being blessed with the privilege of parenthood!
Sweet new adventures await!
I am so grateful. I have lived long enough to learn that parenthood is not a guarantee. It is a gift directly from the Lord. No, I do not pretend to know why some are chosen to be parents and some are not. I only know that the gift of parenthood is an amazing privilege and a sobering responsibility given by a sovereign Lord.
We are rejoicing . . . and we are also praying for this new little person (arriving in early May) and for his/her wonderful parents!
I am so happy for Kati and Andrew. A blessing indeed.ReplyDelete
Thank you, sweet Kathy, for rejoicing with us!Delete
Yay!! Congratulations to Kati and Andrew. I sometimes get overwhelmed thinking of how wonderful my children, children-in-law, and grandchildren are and that they walk with Christ. Of course, there is still the need for those continuing prayers. It isn't Heaven, yet.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Brenda! It is an immeasurable blessing to know that one's children/grandchildren are walking with the Lord! And absolutely, there is always the need for prayer on their behalf!Delete
WOW!!!!! congrats to all!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Carol! We are all so excited!Delete
Very exciting news, and I like your take on it. Parenthood is a gift, and happy they are off to a good start. My guess is you'll be finding your way down south now and then! :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Dotsie! It's going to be hard to be so far away (far for this reluctant traveler anyway!), but we'll certainly have a very good reason to make our way south!Delete
OH! I am so happy for Kati and Andrew, and for your whole family, What a joy for me to see your family continue to grow.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Sue! We are thrilled!Delete
Babies (children, grandchildren) are a BLESSING!ReplyDelete
It's a mistake to take them for granted. But rejoice when they do enter this world.
Such a blessing! Thanks for the congrats!Delete
Awwww...children are a blessing and, while I am sure that it is heartbreaking not to be able to have children, it does not negate the fact that children are a wonderful part of God’s plan. Warm congratulations to Kati and Andrew.ReplyDelete
Indeed, children are a wonderful blessing! (Psalm 127:3) We are thrilled that Kati and Andrew will know this joy! Thank you for your warm congrats!Delete
What a wonderful blessing for Kati and Andrew and your entire family, Cheryl! I've always felt it to be quite a miracle to be with child. I'm so happy for you all.ReplyDelete

Oh wow! Happy happy, joy joy! What an amazing blessing. Congratulations to all!ReplyDelete

Wonderful news-Congratulations to everyone!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Jan!Delete
Happy News indeed!!! Congratulations Katie and Andrew and to you too!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Rosella!Delete
How exciting for everyone! She'll be a great Mom! You'll have to invest in some of those books that talk about "Long Distance Grandma"!ReplyDelete
Awww . . . I think Kati will be a great mom too!Delete
I've been a long distance grandma before (for 8 years while my son lived/worked far away), but it doesn't make it any easier. Maybe I need to look for some of those books to brush up on my skills.
I knew it, I knew it! How wonderful and exciting! ♥ReplyDelete
You guessed?! Yay! Thanks for sharing our excitement, Debby!Delete
