Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

We're having a baby

Lo, children are an heritage from the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
(Psalm 127:3-4)

Many of you have already heard that Karl and I are expecting another baby. We've known for a couple of weeks, and we were unable to keep it a secret any longer! I will see the doctor August 21st to make it official. We are excited about this new development in our lives, and we hope all of you will share in that with us. God is good, He loves us, and we know He will provide everything we need. I plan to keep everyone up-to-date via our blog, so you'll need to check back often to see pictures and read about the latest. And of course we'll still be blogging about all our other adventures, as well as the mundane details of our lives.

In other news, Karl just received his "official" offer from the division here yesterday, so now we can say for sure we are staying in New York. We don't really know how long we'll be here. Karl is hoping to get a lot of experience as an International Program Manager, so he can further his career in the years to come. He has also applied to take online courses through the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University to get his Master of Science in Strategic Management. Fancy, I know! Please continue to pray for us as we are going through these many changes all at once. We will continue to look for a house, too, so please pray that we'll find the best one for our family. Thanks for all of your support. Everyone have a wonderful day!

Congrats on the baby! This will make number 4, right? Or did I miss one somewhere? I'm so glad we have reconnected through cyberspace.

Yes, this will be number 4. We're excited, and wondering where we're gonna find all the baby 'stuff' again that we were so blessed with last time!
