A Future and a Hope

"I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11


Today our family grew with the addition of Ashlyn Michelle. Our hearts are all bursting with love for this new manifestation of future and hope. We finally got to love her up after a bumpy start in the NIC to get fluids and breathing problems resolved. The problems were short-lived and she was soon transfered to the regular nursery for her first bath and then to momma's room to meet her family. We are surely blessed and remember that each one of us is fearfully and wonderfully made!

Congratulations to you, Eric, your daughter/husband and the rest of your family!

Ms. Ashlyn Michelle is beautiful (as is her grandmother!)

I'm so happy that everything turned out just fine. Isn't God wonderful?

Many blessings,
Bobbie Jo

She is a beauty! Am getting to spend lots of time with her as she is keeping her eyes open longer and following my voice. Thrilling to be a part of a new life and personality forming!
