The Holy Blessing of New Life

There's no high like the natural high of childbirth.

There's simply no joy like the glorious joy on the faces of new parents.

There's no awe like the deep awe of a new mother, lovingly admiring the tiny fingers and toes of her newborn child.

There's no blessing that compares to the holy blessing of new life.
Yes, we became grandparents at 10 seconds past midnight this morning.

Gabriella Rosemina Clark weighed 7 lbs, 8 ozs, and has big, gorgeous brown eyes. Gabriella and her exhausted parents are all healthy and "over the moon" with joy.

We had returned to the hospital for one last sojourn. Ron, Andrea and I were fortunate to be able to hold Gabriella when she was just 20 minutes old.

There are no words to describe our family's incomparable joy, except to proclaim again the obvious.....God is good and we are grateful to Him.
