Changes and Blessings

Two months ago, due to my husband's job, we moved to a different city, nearly a two-hour drive from where we were living.  Because of this move, my husband now travels less over the treacherous highway he traveled nearly every day; and our family is able to spend more time together.

The decision was difficult for my husband, because of our love for the church in which we were working and all the activities in which we were involved.  However, it has been a change for the best.  We have received many blessings.

Do we miss family and church brethren?  Yes!  Do we suffer from "home-sickness" and loneliness sometimes?  Yes!

But God has brought us great joy in the midst of this big change in our lives.

We are expecting our third baby!!!  (I think I am due the end of January.)

Our Little Debbie will be seven years old in September.  After all these years, it will be quite a change for us, having a new-born in our home.  But we are all so very excited!!!

Rejoice with us!!!!

And please pray for the baby and me during this pregnancy.  My first 2 pregnancies and deliveries were very easy, with no problems, and I have been asking the Lord to let me have as easy a time with this Little One.


Below are some photos we took on Father's Day.





 Daddy is the King in our home.  How we love him, and we appreciate all he does for us!!!

I know I haven't answered your e-mail yet {bad, bad me!}, but maybe I am the first to leave you a comment here on your blog? (unless, of course, you have comment moderation and just haven't "moderated" yet!)

CONGRATULATIONS, sweet Anna, on your pregnancy! You have no idea how very, very excited I am for you! Apparently, that move was a good one for you. :-)

I look forward to actually {maybe} getting to see you with a pregnant tummy this time around. If I get to see you this winter, it will be my first time to see you carrying a little one. Yay!

I love you, sweet sister, and know you are going to make an excellent mother to this new little one.

THREE'S A CHARM! (That was our motto when we "just" had three!)

Just read this morning... "Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward." Psalm 127:3 Just thought that verse was pretty amazing (that entire chapter) and knew you'd appreciate it at this time! Congratulations!

This is thrilling news!! Congrats to the whole family! I am a little sad (selfishly) about your move from San Cristobal de las Casas, but I know we will get together often for fun and fellowship! 2 hours is not bad at all, right? :) Cannot wait to see you. We will be there in 19 days!! Yippie!! :) Love you all! :) Dodi
