It's A New Life

Sorry for not posting much lately. It's been busy ... and a myriad of other excuses - all valid, of course - I'm sure you understand, but I'll try to be more faithful in keeping you posted and updated on the happenings in our new life here in MB.

To begin with though, for those of you who have not yet heard, we are excited to not only be living a "new life" here in MB, but we are also pleased to be expecting a new life - our baby is due in January of 2009.

God's blessings are immeasurable. We are so honored & humbled to partner with the Creator in His ultimate creation, human life. This baby is our ninth child. Two, Delsey Loye('88) & Bryenna ('94), are already blessing the Father in Heaven while enriching our lives on this earth. Each little life is so very precious.

Note: Praise the Lord and thanks to each of you who helped us make this major move - we could not have done it without you.

Our boys have been wonderful help as well, treating me like a queen, and never complaining even when I have had to sit out time and again due to my "condition". They are all excited to be getting a new sibling (yup, as you can well imagine - they're hoping and praying for a baby sister - aren't we all hoping for a girl?)Of course, we'll love & cherish whomever God has created to fill the void in our family.

Thankfully, this pregnancy, thus far, has been a bit easier than the rest though the huge move and the summer heat have taken their toll which among other factors puts me into the high risk category this time - even with a clear history of six great pregnacies & deliveries.

But all is in God's good hands. This baby is the work of His hands as we've put our trust in Him. Please pray with us that He will be glorified in and through everything.

2:27am??? Were you really up that early? or late? lol

Congratulations!!! We went to the science centre in Edmonton last weekend, and the movie we chose to see at the Imax was "Human Body." So fascinating! The miracle of conception /a new life is just so amazing ~ it really would take more faith to believe evolution than to believe in a Creator God.

Interesting lizards too!

Thanks Karen.

Wow - you folks have been all over these last few weeks - MB, camp in SK, then AB? Sounds like an exciting summer!

Me & sleep play tag during pregnancy - sometimes it's frustrating. Blogging is a good option at times like that.

Thanks Vicki!

We're settling in at a casual pace - while enjoying our time at our new family retreat.
