Baby!!!

We are so thankful, and so blessed, and so happy to announce...

that we are expecting our first blessing!!!

Praise be to God!!! :) I've been feeling a little unwell in the mornings, but I really don't mind that much. I am so happy to be pregnant!

Psalm 117

O praise the LORD, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.

For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the LORD endureth for ever. Praise ye the LORD.
