The Lord bless and keep you. The Lord make His face to shine upon you. The Lord be gracious unto you, and give you peace.

Maria Ruth Hicks

Maria was born July 19th and is the 13th grandchild.
There are now 7 girls & 6 boys.

We were all very happy and surprised to hear it was a girl! We would have been happy with a boy too but Maria's nice. I'm very thankful to be a part of their lives and be able to be right in the action at times like these. To watch David James' face when he heard it was a girl was priceless. He usually tries to act tough but he's really sweet. Having a sister will be
good for him & Matt.

The Lord, again, has given us what we don't deserve.

Oh taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man 
that trusts in Him.


  1. We are so blessed to be a special part of her life too! What a sweet girl. Yes, the Lord is very good.

    1. Thanks, Ruth, for the great pictures of beautiful Maria, and the boys who seem happy to be big brothers. Love, Grandma
