Blessed be the Lord!
For He has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in Him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults,
and with my song I give thanks to Him.
Psalm 28:6-7


I waited patiently for the Lord;
He inclined to me and heard my cry.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear,
and put their trust in the Lord.
Psalm 40:1, 3


This is the Lord‘s doing;
it is marvelous in our eyes.
This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:23-24

  6. Bobbi, the pics of the actual birth (like that first one) are crazy, vacillating from looks of utter shock, disbelief, horror, & fear to looks of complete bliss, delight, and laughter… that pic (carefully selected as filled with delight rather than shock!) was exactly one hour after we realized I was in labor. LOL. So much for my epidural plans!
