My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Luke!

Our little grandson, Luke, arrived ahead of schedule!  He weighed 3 lbs 6 1/2 ozs, 16 1/2 inches!
His loud, lusty cries fill the NICU when he doesn't like something or is unhappy!  
What a sweet sound to our ears!
A picc line was inserted yesterday so the necessary meds can be administered.  Mom and Dad are looking forward to being able to hold this little boy in their arms!  Luke has lots of tests and procedures ahead, please pray that Luke will gain weight and be safe during the days and weeks ahead as he adjusts to this new world.

Congratulations! I'll pray for precious Luke to continue to grow and thrive so that his parents (and grandparents) can hold him very soon.

Carolyn, I will pray for little Luke. I was a mother of a premie and know how important those prayers are for this little guy. Remember God has a plan for him, but for now he just needs a little time to grow big and strong.

Call me if you have any specific needs or requests.
