Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

Life is good

At 3:30 this morning our fifth grandchild made his way into the world - right on schedule! Welcome

Mason James

8 pounds 91/2 ounces, 20 1/2 inches long

He joins big brother Maxx and little sister Melina and cousins McKenna and Abby.

No, that's not his picture. I'll post them as soon as I get them.

Mommy and Daddy, I'm told, are exhausted. Mason is doing just fine.

I suspect it will be this way for awhile.

Rejoice with us. Life is good.

Psalm 126:5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

Go ahead and get close to your heart. Up in our heads can be dangerous. =)

You and your family and your mom in the great cloud of witnesses are in my prayers.

Give yourself some pastoral care too!


And born on Ed Rodman's birthday! May God grant him MANY years, much joy and a heart for peace, justice and love!

Congratulations to Mason's family upon his safe arrival to the world. I wonder if his Great-Nana might not have had a bit of conversation with the wee one between the time she left this realm and the time he arrived? Blessings! Sheila
