Oh My Goodness! That is all that I can say. I am in shock, still trying to figure out how this happened! I know it is truly an amazing gift! Happy is the man that hath his quiver full! Psalm 127:5 I can't stop writing exclamation marks! Yes, I am going to have another baby. Get this...my fifth child! I will be forty this year and I thought we were done! I guess God has other plans for our lives. I am thrilled that he chose us to have another baby but sometimes I think, Lord I am going to be forty, can I handle this? I know that he knows what he is doing, I just have to keep reassuring myself that God will be there to hold my hand. Aside from my shock, my kids are so ecstatic. They can't quit talking about the baby and telling everybody, I mean everybody. My four year old told three people while we were out today that I was pregnant. Then I took my mother-in-law to the doctor the other day and the doctor said, "Is this your first?" When I told him that it was my fifth he had a very disturbed look on his face and said, "How do you do it?" I think he was meaning, how can I manage five! Well, let me tell you, only by the grace of God, my friends. Pray for me ya'll! Pray for me!
