But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

We are so encouraged!

Our church (in particular some lovely ladies from our church, headed by Ginny and Donna) hosted an Encouragement Luncheon yesterday. We were beyond encouraged: We were humbled and honored and so touched and grateful as we saw the large turnout, including some people we'd never met but who have been praying for us for months/years. Many, many of those who have cared for babies, cleaned, done laundry, ironed, and brought meals and gifts these past 1.5+ years were at the luncheon. It felt odd that they were giving to us; it should be the other way around! We can never repay all the kindness and generosity we've received, but we know grace is all about receiving what we didn't and couldn't earn. We do pray we are faithful in extending the same grace and generosity we've received as we see the various needs of others now and in the years to come.

We are focusing on finishing up the sea freight shipment as it leaves a week from today. There's still a lot to do, but we've gotten a lot done (my portion with the help of others; thanks, ladies!!).

I'm going to figure out how to put the slideshow of the most recent photos of the quints juxtaposed with their birth photos (my, they've gotten better looking!) and pictures of our former and new houses on the blog ASAP, but until then here's the most recent group shot (Isaac was at his buddy's house; sorry!):

Will, David, Marcie, Seth, Gracie
Love and more gratitude than we can possibly ever express!
Carrie for us all
