Kyla Joy

I am so proud to announce the birth of my new little niece... Kyla Joy Schippers. She was born at 1:22am this morning, tipping the scales at 5 pounds 14oz and 19.5 inches long. She is perfect in every sense of the word. God NEVER ceases to amaze me with his glory and splendor.

I mean seriously... the face of an angel!

Abby is SOOO excited about her new cousin!

Eric being Eric....

Abby being Abby! Oh, Kyla, the things you will learn from your cousin!

Passage Psalm 139:13-16
Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother's womb.
I thank you, High God—you're breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
before I'd even lived one day.

Thank you Lord for this healthy child! She will be well taken care of here on earth!
