Where has the time gone?

I have not fallen off the face of the planet, as widely rumored.  I have only fallen off the blogosphere.  I'll try to keep my update `post as brief as possible.

Need I say more?   We've been busy anticipating the arrival of our sweet and our first grandbaby!  Jordynn Sage was born into this world on February 11, 2010 at 4:26pm  She weighed 7 lbs 3 oz and measured in at 21 inches.  As you can see, she is perfect.  She is beautiful.  And she has done what I never thought was possible...increase the size of my heart to a level of love I have never known!  

Not only has this sweet angel transformed my heart, she has lovingly created a new role for Mark and I.  We are now Lolo and Nana.  If you speak to Mark he will say that he is NOT Lolo, rather, he wants to be a Papa, but trust me, he is 110% a Lolo.  (Translated from Filipino, Grandfather)

Jordynn has changed everything around here!  All of our laptops, cell phones, etc, have her picture as the background.  She has created Aunts and Uncles, Great Aunts and Great Uncles, Great Grandparents, Great Great Aunts, and Great Great Uncles.  She has brought joy to a sometimes unjoyful world.  She brings with her hope, love, and dreams of great possibilities.  She renews the spirits of us all, and all she has to do is be. 

Other things have gone on here as well, but by far, this has been the most significant.  Babies are definitely God's assurance that Life should go on and He holds great promise and love for us all.
