A Blessing


Sunday was a special day for our family... my brother reporting his mission, Mother's Day, and Genevieve's blessing...
Already this little girl has been a blessing to our lives. Her arrival into our family was no coincidence or accident. She came precisely when she was supposed to...a blessed and happy event after the passing of our grammy.

For me, her birth has been another affirmation and testimony of the plan and purpose of Life. For her dad, maybe a tender mercy from a loving, Heavenly Father.

Genevieve Kristien is named for both her father and her mother. And our hope is that she will have the very best qualities from both of us. This world is made fresh and new again because she was born. And we hope that she will continue to bless it as she lives and grows.


p.s. my sister had her baby girl very early tuesday morning. her name is aidry vivien. we are looking forward to meeting this new little cousin.

Gene did such an awesome job on blessing little Genevieve. I got a little Misty eyed {no pun intended because the spelling is different}. She's simply adorable!

Baby are sweet little things that help you remember what really matters. Genevieve is so pretty and lucky to have such a great family.

Gene did a beautiful job on the blessing. The plan of salvation is a wonderful thing. And there is nothing like a birth or a death to help us see it a little clearer. Our Heavenly Father must really love us.
