Abigail Hope arrived March 31st and weighed 7 lbs. 1 oz. She is my son Jeramy's first child and my second grandchild. She was born on my daughter's birthday. I posted about God's appointed Seasons in my previous post and this is just an example with Abigail being born on Amanda's birthday.

I had gone down to the flower shop at the hospital to look around and couldn't believe what I found. The exact planter that was sent to me in the hospital twenty eight years before when I had my daughter. It was a pink train engine with flowers. I told the lady checking me out that this same planter had been sent to me 28 years ago when I had my daughter (in a different city) and I was sending it to my daughter-in-love and son who had just had their first daughter. (I was so excited, I forgot to take a picture of the planter.)
My daughter Amanda Gayle, her daughter Allison (who happened to be born on her great-great grandfathers birthday) and Abigail.
OUT OF THE MOUTH OF BABES........was a previous post about my grand-daughter Allison asking Jesus for a baby sister. As I said, my daughter was not going to have another child because of all the complications she had during her pregnancy with Allison. Well....... Jesus heard that prayer and Amanda will be having her second child in August. She was told it would be a boy and we are having to explain to Allison that Jesus wants her to have a brother not a sister.
She is half way to her due date and is doing well Praise the Lord!!!! She is seeing a High-Risk Dr. and they are keeping a close eye on her.
The Lord is tripling our grand-children in one year. I feel like Isaac when he sowed and reaped in the same year a hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him. I'm very over-welmed right now!!!

  9. Good Morning Sandra Sweetie...
    I am your newest follower, and found your Oklahoma blog while blog hopping this morning on this beautiful Easter day. How excited I am. I live in Phoenix, but moved her 25 years ago from my home in Enid, Ok. All of my family still live there. I get home once a year in the Fall.

    I love your stories you have written. I so enjoyed myself reading through. Congratulations on your precious new Abigal. How sweet that name is. I love it. You will have a 3rd one coming in August. I will be praying for your precious Amanda and her baby that she is carrying. God Bless them both and keep them safe sweetie.

    Beautiful blog home, just beautiful. I love reading about your doll from your sister, that gave your blog a name. Sister Faith, and how wonderful to have a prayer group for ladies in your home. In the big city things like this do not exist. I only know the names of 2 neighbors and have lived in the same place all these years. People move in, and people move out. Some are scary and you really can't talk to them.

    When you mentioned the Ouija board I have to tell you. I feel the very same way and I had no idea that it was recommended for ages 8 and up. Every day that I go to pick up my DH from the park n ride, I drive past a Fortune Tellers home. She has converted her home into this business. I say prayers every day that I drive by. This home gives me very bad vibes. They recently put their little motor home up for sale, and yes it was in good shape and yes the price was right, but we drove right on by. You never know what might have taken place in the that little trailer. Bad vibes again. We shall keep looking. The things you see in a BIG city are scary sometimes.

    Have a beautiful Easter sweetie. I am so thrilled that I found your beautiful blog home. It has given me a "happy heart". Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

  10. Congratulations! Abigail is a beautiful baby and I am glad she is here safe and sound.
