New parents to be
« on: August 02, 2013, 09:15:37 AM »
Please remember my son and his wife, James and Rachel,  whose first  baby is due this month. They 're in their mid thirties, both professional types and maybe not quite aware of just how life changing this blessed event is going to be. Thanks.

They will have an inkling, at least, after the fourth sleepless night. ;)

God give them strength.

Lord, have mercy!  May baby and parents be healthy and strong, and comfortable with each other.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Congratulations to them. Lord have mercy.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
