Heaven on Earth | Meet Hank Campbell Artze


I think he's gorgeous! Meet Hank Campbell Artze.

This was a shot in the hospital--yes, we knew we'd be there for several days and so I took little outfits for him and dressed him up every day.

Like I said in the post before this one, I already knew I loved him. I just had no idea that I wouldn't be able to put him down or to stop staring at him. I'm smitten.

Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers that have been sent and said on our behalf. We are settling in at home now and (like it or not!) there will be several upcoming posts showing more personal images, including the ones of our celebration in the hospital on Hank's birthday.

For now, one more shot of my two boys together. I thank God for this brotherly bond between them and pray that they will always love each other and be the best of friends. For more of my active prayers check out a book that I highly recommend called, "The Power of a Praying Parent" by Stormie O'Martin.

Precious, right?!

Blessing to everyone, and thanksgiving and praise for ours,

This time tomorrow . . .


This time tomorrow, I'll be holding you in my arms. I'll be the Mama to 2 wonderful sons. I'll have cried happy tears and checked all of your toes. And I'm sure I'll be exhausted.

But I know that I'll be thanking God for trusting me with another precious gift. It seems so unreal to me that He believes in me enough to give yall to me. But I know that He's with me, helping me to be the best Mama I can be for yall.

So, goodnight, my newest love. In some ways it's the last night that I'll hold you this close. But I know that with each passing day I'll hold you closer and closer in my heart.

You are my hope wrapped in a blanket. You are my I love you. You are my precious child, my sweet little one, my gift from my Father. And I cannot wait to meet you.


Say good night to God for me and get ready to say good morning to me.
Blessings to you your whole life through--I already know I love you.
Your Mama
