Eric and Lissie's Courtship: Their Love Story

Mrs. Beaver:

After some significant computer problems, I'm finally able to post again. I'll begin again by sharing the writing of a guest blogger, our daughter, Lissie. Last week she recorded on her blog, Impassioned Purity, the tale of the events that will lead to the marriage altar for her and Eric in less than two weeks now. Here are links:

Finally, a long and meandering account of our love story...

Finally, the last part ~ for now...

Our God is amazing! His steadfast love and faithfulness astound us! We thank Him for His goodness in our little girl's life!

With Open Eyes

With each day Evelyn Rose is opening her eyes a bit more. She's beginning to study her world. I stand amazed at how much she has already changed...and she's only five days old! Our God is so great!

Grandpa and His Newest Girlie

When Anna's pregnancy went into overtime (I know I'm mixing metaphors--but I'm tired so please forgive me), our family began to pray wholeheartedly that Evelyn would be born before the Labor Day holiday weekend. Our reason? We envisioned Mr. Beaver being able to visit for a short time during the three-day-weekend. Sure enough, the little squirt was born mid afternoon on Thursday. We began planning for Grandpa's visit as soon as Evelyn was born. Grandpa arrived about 3:30 am on Saturday morning after some rough weather in his connecting city, Chicago.The next morning he was able to meet Evelyn while she was still less that 48 hours old.

Here are some photos from their special moments together today shortly before Grandpa had to turn around and return home.
