JOY!!

JOY!: to experience great pleasure or delight; Rejoice!





We received this, the first picture of our new grandson expected in late May. It will be the first for our youngest son and his wife. The emotions for me, seeing this for the first time, were of pure joy and overwhelming love. They crashed over me like a wave, all encompassing, flooding my heart and soul. The skinny little leg and the precious facial features, so sweet and such a gift. Little Hagen will be named after my dad, a man so incredible and so close to my sons and me. We all miss him so much. Prayers will be lifted that this little one will have some of his great papa's wisdom, love for others and love for his God and Savior.

Two verses immediately came to mind.... Psalm 139:13-14
“For you created my inmost being: you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
