Birth Day

O Lord, Our Lord, How majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? You have made him a little lower than the angels and crowned him with glory and honor. -Psalm 8:1-5
By the time most of you read this, our babies will have been delivered to us. Shortly past 7:00 this morning. Jo Ann and I can't emphasize enough how grateful we are to have you all to share in our joy, our hopes, our fears, our excitement, our worries, all of it. Thank You.

Benjy and Jo Ann,
We are so happy to hear this news and hope that all went well with the delivery today. We will continue to remember the babies and Jo Ann in prayer as they recover. Jo Ann said that she wanted to go past 33 weeks, and she amazed everyone by doing it! We look forward to seeing you again and meeting your little ones! :)

I am THRILLED for you! I am so excited to see pictures. If you need anything (though, I'm only 2 weeks into this quad parent thing), please let me know. I know it's a VERY busy time. Keep us posted when you can. Congratulations!

Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord;your precious ones have arrived and they have been so covered with prayer and will continue to cover you all with prayer. Can hardly wait to see how Bro. Dave handles all 4 when you have them dedicated. That will be such a great day and a great time.
I love you - all.

Praise God for a perfect delivery for you and the babies! You look wonderful, Jo Ann! I can't wait to see the babies. Remember -- call me ANYTIME! I'm only 4.5 months ahead of you with my quadruplets, but I'll be happy to pass any helpful hints along! I wish I could've stayed longer with you today and heard about the entire delivery, but I know you were exhausted and needed much rest. I can't wait to hear it all. Benjy, you're exactly right -- it's incredible!
