Hands are shaking....

Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
my salvation and my God.

This verse was my meditation this morning -- peacefully waiting, reminding myself of God's sovereignty!

We got THE CALL!

It's a BOY!!!!

We are so honored that God has chosen us to raise this precious little one in the "fear and admonition of the LORD"!!!!
