I am really sorry I haven't posted earlier but I have been really busy and really stressed and really busy and some really pushy people have been pressuring me to post so here I go. (I guess I should have put some commas in there somewhere. Anyway.) The Heyworths went to the Upper Peninsula with us last week. It was a blast. Here's some pictures.

New Baby Brother!

This is my new baby brother, Seth Joseph Cooper.
Mom went into labor Tuesday afternoon. All us kids went to Brian Buurma's house where we spent the night and all the next day. Dad called at about 5:00 to tell us that he wanted us to come home and stay in the basement until Mom had the baby.
Seth was born at 2:20 a.m. after 36 hours of labor.
Seth is a healthy baby. He weighs 10 pounds 2 ounces.
Thank you to everyone who was praying for my mom.

Romans 8:28

I asked God the other day what He wanted me to write on my blog. About two minutes later I was rummaging in the refrigerator for something to eat. After an unsuccessful search, I closed the fridge doors and glanced at the clock above the stove. The numbers on the clock were 8:28. I thought of Romans 8:28 : "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. " This is one my favorite Bible verses become it shows us that God is totally in control and we don't have to worry about anything. Everything will work out for good. Sometimes things don't work together how we want them to, or they don't work together in the time that we want them to. That's because we see such a small part of God's plan for our lives. But He sees the big picture. Maybe He's preparing you for something that's going to happen later on in life. So, that is what God has been showing me. I hope that you are encouraged.

Well, I've decided to try this thing called blogging.(Notice I said try. Seriously, I've been on the computer all day and I think I finished my profile!) Speaking of profiles, if anyone saw mine before noon today your probably thinking I am a complete nut. Well I probably am, but not as much as my brother Ryan made me out to be. That's right everyone, that ridiculous profile was a result of my brother's warped sense of humor. I am never letting him help me with my blog again. So, I am sorry it took so long to post this, but fixing a mutilated profile takes time.
