Meet my newest GRAND BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is Riley Kaye/ Logan James Rogers............. all 5 weeks and 5 days old!! Esther and Casey announced their news last week. We had a SCARE on Monday but the ultrasound showed us that Baby Rogers was indeed very much present with heart tones recorded!! I was so thankful that Casey was able to get off work to be with Esther and glad that I was able to drop what I was doing to be with them as well! Oh we prayed so earnestly together for God  to do what looked pretty impossible at the moment, but  more than that,   to draw Esther and Casey closer and closer to Himself   NO MATTER WHAT!!! Our rejoicing was certainly great when we knew she had not lost the baby!!  Our son Caleb and his wife Tiffany were also expecting a baby, due at the same time. They were waiting on their ultrasound to make their announcement but the ultrasound didn't deliver good news for them.The roller coaster ride of   Mamma -Gramma  emotions was pretty wild, sharing Esther's news, to be met with Caleb's news, and then  for Esther to experience what she did on Monday ............I had chosen as one of our worship songs for Sundays' service Blessed be the Lord".
We all were  singing " Every blessing You pour out I'll turn back to praise. When the darkness closes  in Lord,  STILL I WILL SAY  Blessed be the Name of the Lord  Blessed  be Your Glorious Name!!" prepared  to sing  praises no matter what was going to happen.
Isaiah's MRSA  infection had to be re-opened and repacked yesterday, but he is more mobile than he has been. I'm so thankful that even though there is still a lot of infection still present  we seem to be beating it back!
  Jael is celebrating this her NINTH DAY of no blackouts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are still other symptoms which are pretty limiting, and I did have to bring her home from school today, but no black outs!!!! We are praising God for whatever He is leading us through as we trust for complete healing and restoration in her body!
I will be waiting with almost baited breath for new photos of our  Junior and Diamoh next week! A friend we traveled to Liberia with two years ago is going over this weekend and is carrying gifts from us to our dear children ! It is such a joy to be able to send things to them,  to send money to provide for their needs and OH SO PRECIOUS  to be able to talk to them as often as we do!! It will be wonderful to have photos when Eric returns. One day we won't need a courier  because our children will be home. Lord please  haste the day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can tell you all with absolute certainty, life would be beyond impossible without the presence of my Heavenly Father by  awesome His Holy Spirit!
