Karlie Elizabeth Hicks is Here!


Praise the Lord for His bountiful blessings!!! Karlie Elizabeth was born at 3:28 pm; she's 8 pounds 2 ounces, and 20 inches long! The doctor says all is well, and mama's doing great too. : ).

From ancient times, it has been traditional to recite Psalm 127 in celebration of a new birth. The Lord is a gracious God who is bountiful in His blessings!

Psalm 127:1 A Song of Ascents, of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain. 2 It is vain for you to rise up early, To retire late, To eat the bread of painful labors; For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep. 3 Behold, children are a gift of the LORD; The fruit of the womb is a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one's youth. 5 How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; They shall not be ashamed, When they speak with their enemies din the gate.
