Write it on your walls and doorposts ... Deut. 11:20

Their home is filled with love, warmth .... and inspiring words.
on the walls, on the shelves, and even on the pillows.

We were witness to a most sacred event in the life of our sweet daughter Becky
and much loved son-in-law Patrick
as they welcomed a precious gift from God into their home and lives ...

I can hardly believe that it's been one month since I arrived at this far away home
for the birth of our first grandchild, little darling Noa ...

We were there for her first official walk to the park:

Let's go Daddy!
What's a walk in the park without some ice-cream? Yum.

Sleepy baby
For her first bath ...

... and to see how much she is loved by her daddy as he comforted her.

My heart was full as I watched this little family love each other and their beautiful daughter!

I was standing on Holy Ground and thank the Lord each and every day for this blessing!

They need one of these now

Happy One Month Birthday sweet Noa Marie!!!

In the meantime ... staring at the pictures of her and waiting each day for more to come :).
