Dear friends came to tell us this evening that they are expecting!!!! They will remain nameless for now but no one they know reads this as far as I know or can tell. So anyway, they have one other little miracle who is five and they had basically given up hope from what I could tell. We had all stopped talking about the possibility and the docs were pretty grim about the whole thing. So.....out of the blue she was suspecting that something was going on and it was!!!!! Christ be praised!!!! I am so excited! This goes to show that the only person who can surprise me is Jesus. No one else (ok one person did surprise me once but not family) has ever surprised me - not like this. Picture people jumping up and down in the front lawn hugging and crying. We are so very happy for them words can not express. So.....if you are guessing who this is but don't really run into people they know keep it under your hat for now. THis is not a very public blog that I know of so I think I am safe to journal this out here.
Oh, here is the kicker. Their son said to them before they knew, something to the effect of referring to 'the new baby'. Some little guy has been praying for a sibling I think.
Joyful, joyful we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of Love!
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, Praising Thee, their sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness, Drive the gloom of doubt away.
Giver of immortal gladness, Fill us with the light of day
Christ be praised!
