But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children . . . Psalm 103:17

Anybody ready for some news?



I figure everyone is waiting with bated breath, so . . . here we go.


Introducing!

The Jones Quintuplets
Born August 9, 2012

Will Edward: 2lb, 10 oz. 10:01 AM

David Stephen: 2 lb, 6 oz. 10:02 AM



Marcie Jane: 2 lb, 0 oz. 10:03 AM



Seth Jared: 2 lb. 1 oz. 10:04 AM



Grace Elise: 1 lb 12 oz. 10:05 AM


All the babies are healthy and doing well, despite how they look (referring to the lines and tubes-- they're all beautifully formed!)  We praise God for His mercy and love in bringing these 5 new lives into ours!  The whole delivery went flawlessly from beginning to end.  Carrie has already been up and into the NICU two times to see the babies!  Everyone is saying that it's incredible how quickly she's recovering and couldn't believe how soon she was in to see them.  Isaac is enthralled with his new siblings!  Thanks to all for your prayers and all the glory to God!  

Unfortunately, we aren't connected to our email account here, just the internet, so that's a bit limiting and frustrating.  Bear with us on that, please.

    1. Congratulations - Hope someone has kissed them on the neck by now. Explain to the nurses the importance. Very important to kiss them on the neck - that is where the skin is the thinnest and the love goes in the fastest. Think about it - a toddler pulls up his shoulders when you try to kiss them on the neck. And then they become teenagers and what do they want to do - 'neck'. It is all tied in together.

  9. We have been praying for you Carrie, Gavin and Isaac! Thanks for the news and the photos! Know of our continued prayers. We don't 'know' you, but know the ONE who is caring for you and will continue to do so. I was reminded of Psalm 17:8 today. That God keeps us as the apple of His eye; and hides us in the shadow of His wings. Thankful for your precious little ones and how He knows them and is caring for them!

Praying for you all so often, and looking forward to meeting you sometime soon!

  57. Congratulations Gavin and Carrie! Your story really brings glory to God and I am so touched by it. The Lord is amazing and YES, May His will be done! Amen!

    My daughter is 5 years old and we have been praying for another child as well for the last few years. Unfortunately, I have been through 5 miscarriages and still praying that God will bless us in His time. I believe that His plan is the only plan for us.

  58. Congrats!! I heard your story on K-Love this morning and just HAD to see your blog! What strong and beautiful babies you have! I had a preemie in February (born at 26 weeks, 1 lb 4oz) and she is doing so well & has rolls all over now! What the Lord has done for her, I pray He will also do for your precious little ones. May God grant you peace, comfort and energy (and healing for Carrie). I know this can be an emotional roller coaster but know you have people all over the country lifting you family up! Carrie,I will pray for you particularly.

  66. Am amazed at all the places this blog is appearing: Fox news, K-LOVE radio, the Elijah List, to name a few.
    Woo-hoo! That just means more & increased prayers for the Jones family!
    God is never early or late; He's always right on time. Doubtless He was also showing mercy to Carrie, as she was "running out of room"!
    Abundant blessings to the whole family, with special prayers that the quints will continue to thrive.

    Plans for you, He surely has,
    Future bright, and hope that lasts.
    As you rest in the NICU,
    God Himself sings over you.

  68. Awwwwww.... they are just so tiny and sweet, and even though they are just wittle things, they are just so CUTE!!!!!!! ;-)))) I personally was 8lbs 0oz, but i was the 2nd or 3rd largest baby (the largest was over 10 lbs) so they look so tiny to me. Hope they grow up strong and sweet, make sure to tell them that Jessica,one of their biggest fans, gives them each a hug and a GREAT BIG kiss!
    P.S.-Kittencorns ROCK!!!!!

  69. Wow, what a beautiful gift/gifts from God. Jehovah Jireh our provider. Proverbs 3:5-6 He says Trust Me to me a lot and I have found as I do just that great things happen. My second Child Catherine, she likes to be called Cath was also born on 9th of August. She just turned 28. God is good. I believe that God has entrusted you with these five children together, plus your beautiful Isaac, because you are so worthy of that trust. A job well done. God Loves You so Much, God Bless.

  70. Oh how precious and beautiful your little babies are. You all are in our prayers, and big brother will be a big help with them. I am a twin, and that is special, but 5 is very special.

I love babies, and wish I was a neighbor so I could help you, I am a grandma, have 3 children and 4 grandchildren, Your are in our prayers, God Bless, Joyce J.

  71. Blessings to you and your new additions!! As a NICU Nurse, I know the journey you are embarking on. Just keep leaning on HIM for your strength. Trust in the Doctors and Nurses but question that which you don't understand. There will be highs and there will be lows. BUT, always keep your eyes on our Lord. Basque in this miracle of life and know that He has a plan for your family!! Much love and prayers, Kellie

  79. A real blessing..... As a mother of quints, my best advise to you is to rest and save all your energy, they will need a healthy mom when they get home. I got so stress on the second week that I developed Bell's Palsy, so please, please rest. I also have 3 boys/2 girls and a 10 y/o whom keep me completely busy. I truly believe that this only happens as per God's will.... and to take care of them will not be easy but the Lord will give you the strenght and the help you need.

    God Bless you,

  85. Among the best things about joining a site where you're able to take your pick via the different sizegeneticss who advertise their services is that you will can choose from a variety of different sizegenetics offerings people have available. Once you log onto days, you can browse through and look into the sizegeneticss and in addition the services which are willing to provide. While it's possible to have a glimpse of what requires you to come for those who think about the positioning and then judge a handful of the men which are providing these services, you'll be able to buy to give consideration to the photos including where they are simply from. Should you be looking for an erotic male sizegenetics, chances are you are looking to obtain gay sizegenetics from someone who is close to where you live.
