My sister had her baby!
« on: August 19, 2013, 09:25:14 PM »
On Christmas Eve I posted a prayer request because it seemed that my younger sister was having another miscarriage.  For reference: http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,48845.0.html  She gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Donovan Charles.  Thank you all again for your prayers.

Glory to God.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

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.

God grant the new family many years.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Thank God!

May God grant the entire family many, happy and healthy years!!!
