We plan, God smiles...

Our precious little gracie was born about 5 months ago. You remember the story. Our daughter in law had gone through cancer some years before, and because of chemo and radiation, they couldn't get pregnant...

Gracie is the beautiful result of all that, as Molly carried her perfectly through the 'snowflake adoption'.

Now, 5 months later, may I present Gracie, wearing her t-shirt, and announcing to all of us the latest news...


YES! Gracie is going to be a big sister. Man plans, God smiles, and His ways and plans are beyond what we can even dream up. The pregnancy that 'couldn't happen', has happened!

Our family is grinning from ear to ear, even as we shake our heads in wonder... as God smiles.

Gracie is absolutely adorable and charming. God's own smile.
May she experience the promise from Psalm 23: "6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever."
That is my gift to her.
