Joshua is going home!

My sweet, sweet mother-in-law made it in safely, and, boy, are we ever enjoying her!  She is such a barrel of fun and all 6 of us are vying for her attention at all times, it seems.

She shared this picture of little Joshua with us today, and I asked her to e-mail it to me so that I could share it with you too.  Doesn't he just look like a little man?!  When you look at his Mommy's hand, you can understand just how little this preemie's face really is.  So tiny, yet so perfect.

We are excited to share with you the news that little Joshua will be going home from the hospital in the next couple of days.  How grateful we are for his little life!  Thank you for the amazing, positive response you have shown in offering your prayers and words of encouragement to his family.  I know they have been encouraged to know that people from all over the globe have come before the throne of grace on their behalf.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights,...  James 1:17.  Thank you, Father, for this good and perfect gift!

  3. Nothing quite like answered prayers!! What marvelous blessings to have family with you (I know she'll enjoy you adults -- but, Oh - the children!!! Grandmothers love to hold, and hug, and hold again) and to know that Joshua is going home. Now to praise Him for His excellent greatness.

  7. Praise the Lord! That is wonderful! He is SOOOO adorable! I know his parents are so thankful!
    We had an amazing answer to prayer yesterday too. Our daughter, Hannah, had been sent for a mammogram because of a lump detected by the doctor. She was then to have an ultrasound after the mammogram. After they looked at the mammogram, they told her she could go; everything was fine. She asked, but what about the lump?". The technician said, "it's not there!". There was no sign of anything. Everything was normal! She doesn't hav to go back until she's 40! Ten years from now! What a wonderful prayer answering, caring God we serve! Just thought I'd share that! Hope you enjoy your visit with your mother in law. Sounds like you are! Gail
