Showers of Blessings

A few weeks ago, a little secret started.
A secret that would totally bless the sock off of one our our much loved friends.
Lesile, our friend, has been dealing with a very difficult pregnancy
which at times has been very scary and least of all, extremely trying to body and soul.
So a couple of people had an idea to throw Leslie a "bloggity baby shower."
We've kept it a secret, made lots of plans, and had the most amazing fun
pulling this all together to surprise her.
And today is the the day!
This evening at 11pm EST the secret blog, Showers of Blessings,
is going LIVE! and will be open to the public.
Some come over and see what we've been up to,
participate in the games (there are 3 going on)
and leave Leslie a good wish.

Watch the slide show that Dawna has so lovingly put together,
help yourself to some virtual mudpie brownies,
and join in on the chat.
It's sure to be a blast.

One of our games was to write a poem or a few verses
for Leslie (you can see the original idea here)
but because of the response to the game,
the organizer has asked each of us
to post our verse on our own blog.
I am by no means gifted in this area,
so please don't laugh.
It is truly heart felt.
For God's grace we prayed
a healthy family of four,
growing a miracle
so much adored
the "love-at-first-sight"
oh so tiny and sweet
with ten finger and toes
and a soft downy head.
Waiting with hope
and much anticipation
covered by prayer
and relying on Jesus
daddy and mommy,
with big sister Rylan
can't wait for the arrival
of sweet baby Cade
