Hey! I can tie my shoes again!


The strife is o’er, the battle done…

Dear observant Cathy: Yes! I beat the ticker!

Dear praying Anon: Thank you, thank you, and your prayers were answered just about 11 hours after the 13th!

Praising God for another healthy, freakishly adorable, 7 lb 11 oz baby boy.

Random thought: Whenever I contemplate a newbie, I am astonished by his astonishing smallness. Until I recall where he so recently dwelt, and his method of egress. And then I am astonished by his astonishing largeness.

Above all, I am astonished that despite my many, obvious, egregious failures as a mother, God in His grace has bestowed upon me yet another child-gift, and in His mercy will continue to drown my failures in the lavish sufficiency of Christ’s blood.

Congratulations! and I agree "God in His grace has bestowed upon me yet another child-gift" about sums it up. I certainly don't deserve the children God has given me.

I am always astonished by the same astonishment. Congrats, and take a wiff of that adorable baby's head for me. I think that might be what heaven smells like. I can think of no more wonderful perfume.
