Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow

When Laura was a baby, I was always praying that one day she would become a big sister...I told Mom that if she was ever expecting again, I would cook all the meals, do the laundry, watch the younger ones, clean the house, help with school, make sure she got a nap each day ~ and the list grew!! I just wanted another baby to hold. Finally, I became content with the siblings that God had already given...

Little did I know, that almost 3 years later my chance would come to fulfill "the list" that I so easily rattled off then.

Yes, my parents are expecting blessing #9 due at the end of February or beginning of March. We are so excited and thrilled!

Keeping Momma and Baby in your prayers is much appreciated~
A smiling big sister,
Jenna

YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY!!!! Oh Jenna I have been HOPING for this for quite a while!!! A few months ago I was thinking, "Hmm, Laura is getting to be quite a little lady... I wonder if the Lord will give them any more?"
I am so happy for you all and will be praying everything goes well!
I wonder what the Lord is doing right now :) - I either know personally, or keep hearing of, so many Christian families who are expecting children; more at once than I've ever heard of before! Praise the Lord for His goodness!

SOLI DEO GLORIA!
