Blessed Beyond Measure!


This past week "Gramma's  Guys" went from four to five. Five precious grandsons!  Isaac was born on Wednesday, April 17. He weighted in at 8 lbs and 6 ozs. We've been a little busy around here welcoming this newest addition to our family. His cousins came to meet him and as you can tell, they were full of excitement and smiles. Big Brother, Aaron (in the brown) has been beyond excitement. So much so that he's just worn out. Although, there's not a smile on his face right now, I can assure you that he is very glad that his new brother is finally here!!  He's sad in this picture because his cousins are getting ready to leave for home. They all have such great fun together and he just wants them to stay longer!

This is the "new guy."  He's less than 24 hours old in these pictures. Before you say "your pictures are beautiful," I will say "I didn't take them." They where taken by a professional photographer at the hospital. How cool is that!!  My kids first photos were in  hospital shirts against a solid background and compared to these, pretty boring!  Not my kids, just the photos. I treasure their first photos, but wow, these are so much better!

I wish there were new, special words that I could use to describe my feelings of the past few days, but there aren't. These feelings aren't new, many of you know exactly what I'm feeling and it's just indescribable!

I feel blessed that we have five healthy grandsons.
I feel awe when I hold this new precious life.
I feel love, abundant love.
I feel responsibility to be an example for our grandsons.
I feel joy, overwhelming joy.
I feel grateful that Isaac is safely here.
My heart sings!!
For you make me glad by your deeds, O LORD;
I sing for joy at the works of your hands.
How great are your works, O Lord
~ Psalm 92:4,5 ~
