Straight from the Arms of Angels...

Well, I'll bet you can guess what my post is about today!  She's finally here . . . 
meet Clara Josephine!

She's only a few minutes old in this picture . . . already a happy baby! 

Clara has captured her grandma's heart . . . what a little angel!

She also stole Brody's heart . . . 

And, her daddy's heart . . . 
As I held this sweet little girl in my arms. I could not help but think of Hannah.  I know that Hannah was with Clara on the other side . . . loving her and cherishing her . . . she will still be with her . . . loving her, and missing her until they meet again.  She will be cheering her on when she needs it and weeping with her when she has a broken heart.  I know without a doubt, that Clara came from God's arms, to Hannah's  . . . to ours.  What a precious gift!

Now . . . it's time to sleep!

Warm hugs,


  1. WOW...what a beauty!!! And I got chills in that last sentence because as I gave birth to a daughter, I saw her sister standing off to the side...she had come with her. And over the years, this little sis has been there to help her big sis with everything! God bless your family..thanks for this...

  2. Ah she's beautiful. I believe God sends us encouragement, to help us heal and trust Him and to know that He loves us. Linda

  3. YAY! so glad she is here! What a sweet little thing! Congrats to the amazing parents!

  4. So, so sweet! God bless all of you as you love this tiny bundle of hope, comfort, and joy.

  8. Ohhhhhhhhh my Dear!!!!!!!! I am so happy for all of you!!! What a precious, precious little bundle of joy!

    I didn't understand, at first. But when I clicked on your link, I remembered. Oh so bitter/sweet. But of course, you all must concentrate on the "sweet" part.

    I am so happy for you!

    But I'm not happy that you are very sick! Now, rest, rest, rest. Take meds prescribed. And then, rest some more. You have to get all better, to enjoy and perhaps help out with your new precious little family member.

    I just keep rattling on but will stop now.

    Happy! Happy! Happy! Happy! Happy!

    Gentle hugs,

  9. How precious. She is sucha cutie. I am so glad that she made it. Congratulations!! Love, Laura

  10. So tiny and beautiful. God bless her.

  11. What a sweet little one. She is beautiful! Congratulations to your family! :)

  12. I have been visiting my kids for a week and just saw this now!!

    Congratulations on your tiny bundle of joy!!! What great news!

  13. She is precious, a sweet little angel. Congratulations to you and your family. You have certainly been blessed lately with the arrival of these precious little ones. I love the picture of her little hand clasping the finger of her daddy or whoever. Congratulations! What a wonderful Mother's Day this will be with little Clara's arrival.
    Hope you have a great Mother's Day. Nola

  14. Hi Barb - I'm back! Or Trying to be! What a beautiful little angel you have there! Congratulations to all of you - she's just precious! I hope all things are going your way and it certainly looks like the Lord is blessing in many ways!

  15. Congratulations on your new little grand daughter. She is adorable of course. I loved the pictures and the warm thoughts. I agree she does know Hannah and she was sent down from a very loving Heavenly Father.
    Sweet moments to enjoy.
    Blessings and love sent to you today!

  16. What a precious little bundle of joy! You look like a happy grandmother, Barb. Congrats! I've been on a little blog break and it's good to be back to see what's happening in blogland. Hope to see you soon!

  17. Oh Barb! What a delightful newborn picture you have posted of your new little Clara Josephine! Love her name! I've lost count how many grandchildren you've added to your family this year -- is it 3? I am so happy for you!
