Hannah Marie

We have a new granddaughter! Hannah Marie was born July 8, 2012. She weighed only 6 lb. 2 oz. and is a beautiful little one. Hannah's mother, my beautiful wonderful daughter, had gestational diabetes and so little Hannah Marie had some trouble regulating her blood sugar. She spent her time in the hospital in the NICU but came home with her mother on Thursday. They are doing well! Isn't she beautiful!

New Home

We have sold our home in Sandy and are building a new home in West Jordan.This is where it was on July 2nd. It has been well over a year since I have posted. It would take far too long to explain why, suffice it to say it has been a deep year of sole searching. I think I have emerged from under a cloud and the sun is shining again. It is as though someone has literally BLOCKED the adversary from attacking me personally. I have been able to look at the world from a different place, a clear place, a place where I have been given a glimpse of "things as they really are" as the prophet Jacob in the Book of Mormon taught.

"Jacob 4:13 Behold, my brethren, he that prophesieth, let him prophesy to the understanding of men; for the Spirit speaketh the truth and lieth not. Wherefore, it speaketh of things as they really are, and of things as they really will be; wherefore, these things are manifested unto us plainly, for the salvation of our souls. But behold, we are not witnesses alone in these things; for God also spake them unto prophets of old."

In 1 Corinthians 13:12, we are taught: "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known."

I know that the privelege of seeing more clearly also brings a new responsibility. I pray that I might reach out to the new friends that will surely come into my life, as I miss and dearly love my forever friends from Sandy.
