Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22444 – 849:
Here’s the haps:
Every year (except last year) since 1998 or 1999, our church has hosted a nationwide youth conference called Heritage. Young people and their chaperones, pastors, and youth pastors will be here in Colorado Springs. Attendance is expected to be over 2,000 this year. Getting 2,000 Pentecostal young people together for 3 days of intense preaching. This sort of undertaking requires a lot of background work. My son, Ben, over at Brother’s Campfire wrote about it in a post called Doorkeeper, an Honor and Privilege. I have written about it in a couple of posts in the past as well: Strange But True on 7/19/05 and Healing Miracle on 7/31/16. Last time, in 2019, we started having a Children’s Church during the services and I will be working in that. I didn’t want to let time get the better of my blog again as it was wont, in the past, to do so I got permission from my daughter to post some pictures of the new grandbaby. I’m still working on the big writing project I gave you a sneak peek at, but I want it to be good and so I am taking my time.
Violet Stephanie Berlyn is a little over a week old now. She did have to go home on oxygen but that’s normal for a preemie.
Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.(Pro 17:6 KJV)
Babies are awesome. Nieces and nephews the best
Yes, they are.
She’s a beautiful little doll, Herb! 😍Congratulations, Grampa! 🎉
My pleasure. 🙂
WHOA SHE’S SO T I N Y
(Apologies is this comment is just too much to handle. I’m sorry, but Violet is just… So small that I can’t seem to notice anything else-)
if*, not is. I have spammed your site. I’ll leave, now.
salutes, disappears, and reappears in the middle of the Pacific Ocean
Oh, dear. I hope she had a life jacket and shark repellent.
I hope she did, too!
No apologies necessary.
Yes, she’s a little smaller than average because she was born earlier but not extraordinary.
Ohhh I see I see
It’s nice that the siblings are part of the caretaking team, too.
It helps in a lot of ways, for sure.
Cute kids. Babies are a real adjustment even without the oxygen. Have a good week Herb. Allan
Thank you. Yes, they are.
Like I’ve said before — Waltonesque! Your grandchildren are lovely. 😊
Awwwww. Beautiful little girl, Bumpaw!
I’m sorry, were you saying something? The pictures upstaged whatever it was!
lol. Yes, they are distracting.
WoW So little How is Mom??

She’s doing well with all the help.
Congratulations bumpaw. A fine, fine looking brood for a proud grandpa.
Thank you very much, sir.
Congratulations bumpaw, your crown is accumulating more gems!
Thank you. Yes it is.
Wow, love your new born baby girl and the little big brother. What a happy family. Wish you a great family gathering and church gathering too. And a wonderful summer. 😊😜😍
Thank you so much.
Now that there’s a baby!
Thank you. We think so too.
So precious! And so precious to see all the older siblings enthralled. 💞
They are really sweet that way.
Congratulations! Good to hear she’s healthy and doing well
Your final quotation sums things up beautifully.
May only the very best things in life come their way. Also love the closing Bible quote – had never heard it.
Thank you so much. I love the King James English.
