A Gift From The Father Above

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows."
James 1:17

Today our family received a good and perfect gift from the Heavenly Father. We have been blessed by the birth of our new grandson. He is a precious little boy who we have prayed for much over the last few months. There were many concerns and risk factors involved - but God heard and answered our prayers for a safe and healthy delivery for our daughter-in-law, Mrs. K. and little Mr. H. After his birth we learned that God had guarded him from a situation that could not be detected before his arrival. The doctor discovered a very large knot in the cord that was his lifeline until birth. She said it was a good thing they had induced labor and brought him into the world today - additional time and weight gain would have led to certain disaster! When we heard this news we thanked God for His mercy and the way He gave the doctor wisdom to sense the need to intervene today.

Big brother, Mr. R.

Big brother, Mr. G.

Mr. H.'s two big brothers were very proud to introduce us to him when we arrived at the hospital. It wasn't long before they joined the two grandmas who were very busy with their cameras.

Just before they left for home and bedtime, Mr. R. and Mr. G. spent a few minutes near their mom while she shared the news with a good friend by phone.Our hearts are full of praise and gratitude for the precious gift of life that has come from God above. Little Hudson has come into a home and a family who will dearly love him, enjoy him, teach him and help him grow to be the man God created him to be. I am filled with awe that we should be so blessed! And I am truly happy to be part of this little boy's life. I am a grateful grandma.


  1. Adrienne, congratulations on your healthy new grandson ~ what a blessing!!

  2. Congratulations on your precious gift! I love your pictures. I'll add our soon. Enjoy!

  3. Adrienne, thanks so much for your comments on my blog. I'm so glad you found me. We were crabbing on Netarts Bay, but have been crabbing on Tillamook Bay too. I live in Sherwood and have lived here almost 12 years. Before that we lived in Southwest Portland. My mall space is at Monticello Antique Mall at 8600 SE Stark in Portland, right off of the 205 fwy. If you haven't been there I promise you are in for a treat. It is the best antique mall in Oregon in my opinion, but I may be biased. ha ha Our booth name is "tickled pink" you can't miss it. Best wishes to you and your family, and congratulations on the newest member!
