WHO LOVES YA, BABY??

The SUO challenge for this week, is a baby card!  I kind of went with very non traditional baby colors here.....but it still looks babyish, right???  I made one with more like regular baby colors but I was not a big fan.....we actually are short on actual baby stamps I think....but this little lamb from Storybook Friends WORKS, if you ask me. :) Our pastor's wife had a baby this week.....Emmitt Blake, so fresh and new, a wee bundle from heaven, so anticipated and so loved.  Our pastor Blake shared on Facebook how his wife, Bobbi Jo lost a baby 2 years ago, and we all cried with them.  Last year on the anniversary of the loss of little Baby Blunkall, we all cried with them again.  THIS year, on that same anniversary, Little Baby Emmitt made his grand entrance into our world, and of course, we all REJOICED with them!! God's perfect timing that has turned a date that was once such a source of pain for them, into one of JOY.  Joy and pain sometimes go hand in hand then, don't they??  "IT'S PROPERLY CALLED, A BLESSED EVENT, WHEN MIRACLE LIKE, A BABY IS SENT, FOR A CHILD'S ARRIVAL, IS GOD'S INVASION, LOVE'S RENEWAL AND A JOY CELEBRATION, TREE'S CLAP THEIR HANDS WHEN A BABY IS BORN, AND NIGHT SORROW EXITS, ON THE WINGS OF THE MORN, HOPE AND GLADNESS BETROTHED, GO DANCING THRU THE EARTH, AND FAITH AND LOVE EMBRACE, WHEN A MOTHER GIVES BIRTH!!"  WELCOME BABY EMMITT, WE LOVE YOU!!  Until next time, Karen
