Many subscribers have mentioned they have been praying for the birth of my baby number 10. And many have said they are eagerly awaiting the birth story.
Thanks for much for praying. I have never experienced a birth where the prayers of God's people were so very needed. This issue contains the birth story in details. My prayer is that it will be used of the Lord in your life to His glory.
We have hit a new record with eighteen pages this issue. But we still had no room for the regular "At Our House" column. It seemed the best thing to leave out this issue since The Birth is mainly what has happened at our house, and the newsletter is already full of that adventure.
Well, spring is just around the corner now. I can hardly wait to taste the fresh garden salads...see my laundry swaying in the breeze...watch the children playing in the new grass. But we've plenty to do before spring gets here---home school to wrap up, signs to paint for the garden business, transplant tables to get set up, transplants to get started---and I'm sure you do too. Time will fly and spring will be here before we know it.
Therefore, gird your minds for action, keep sober in spirit,
fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
(I Peter 1:13)
