Guess What????????????

Guess What..........

WE ARE EXPECTING A NEW BABY!!!!!!

Tears of joy came this morning after I read the test. I was so shocked and happy at the same time. Funny thing, yesterday I took a test (and it was the 23rd) but after 15 minutes or so and nothing happened, I stuck it in the drawer and thought o well. This morning I thought I would do a morning test and within 15 minutes it showed positive. I got the test out I took yesterday and looked at it and it showed positive too, I could have known yesterday but I guess it was a treasure hid in a drawer for today! This is certainly an answer to prayer and we are very thankful for the Lord's mercy. I have prayed that verse in Ps. many times asking the Lord to make me fruitful in old age, 92:14, They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; to show that the Lord is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him. We will be praying the Lord to have mercy and grant this pregnancy according to his will and I will be grateful for each day that I get to carry a new little life! This is our 17th life, treasure,reward that the Lord has blessed our family with. Its complicated to keep all the numbers straight, we have had 13 on the ground, now we have a little boy in heaven and three tiny treasures there, and now one in the making. Praise the Lord for his mercy!!!!! I guess if you think about it, pray the Lord's will to be done!

Danielle heads back today, We have had a good time. One thing for sure, she knows the real Morris' now. Pray for her as the Lord brings it to mind as she gets back to her routine and that the Lord would bless and order her steps!

Have a great day, it's a good day for our family!!!!!!

Cindy!!!! I am soo excited for you! THere is nothing in the world better than getting that wonderful news and seeing that little line on those test. I think I am addicted to the little pink line! LOL! I will be thinking of you all day today sharing in your excitement and newest blessing...or blessings! We serve an awesome God that hears the very cries of our hearts and answers in His time.

And to the anonymous commenter still longing for your sweet baby, you are on my heart. The Lord is indeed sovereign and good and though I do not always...in fact, rarely ever...understand His ways I do know that beyond everything His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts our thoughts. I have seen this proven time and time again as His will and His purpose is unfolded in our own lives...long after the circumstances, tragedies and triumphs have occured. He is building a testimony in you and your sweet husband that is unique to you and will be used to bless others in a mighty way, and He is building you up in Him as you walk out your journey discovering who He is. I am praying for you and the family He will give you..in whatever way He chooses to give it to you.

Cindy....I am just so excited for y'all! You are on my heart and mind.

The Lord answers prayers and fulfills the desires of his people. Children are a gift of obedience to our Lord and the result of him being worshiped. Blessed be the Name of the Lord. May your 13 children only be a start of a Godly seed that fills the earth with his glory. My mother and father prayed a prayer of faith over me that I would be sent a God fearing spouse that would pray for Children. My mother once told me that I would parent many children and that my children would parent thousands.....

If you have only 13 children and your children average 13 children and your grandchildren average 13 you will have 2197 great grandchildren. Praise be the Lord.

My father would pray over me using the these passages.

Genesis 22:17
I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies,


Genesis 32:12
But you have said, 'I will surely make you prosper and will make your descendants like the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted.' "


Isaiah 48:19
Your descendants would have been like the sand, your children like its numberless grains; their name would never be cut off nor destroyed from before me."


Jeremiah 33:22
I will make the descendants of David my servant and the Levites who minister before me as countless as the stars of the sky and as measureless as the sand on the seashore.' "


Hebrews 11:12
And so from this one man, and he as good as dead, came descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as countless as the sand on the seashore.


God has shown me it is his will for this to be true in our family and yours.

My Father and monther where NOT speaking foolishness. They where speaking truth and blessing into my life and the life of my spouse.

God would not command us to "As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it." Genesis 9:7 If he did not also give us everything we need for life and godliness.

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Philippians 1:6


Nehemiah said, "Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is sacred to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength."
Nehemiah 8:10


Like you have said in the past Our God is faithful

Because of your father's God, who helps you, because of the Almighty, who blesses you with blessings of the heavens above, blessings of the deep that lies below, blessings of the breast and womb. Genesis 49:25

God has Become more real in hard times because he can show his full might to support us and teach us to fully be provided for by him. He is preparing us to be a better spouse and better parents for the MANY Godly children, grandchildren and great grandchildren yet to come.

I would not be surprised (from what I KNOW) if you have twins on the way or yet to come.....

I am EXCITED about the hours, days, months, years, generations, and eternity to come!!!!!
