There are just no words to express the absolute joy in my heart. My daughter Megan and her husband Rod welcomed the newest member of their family into the world today. Silas made his grand entrance this afternoon at 1:32 and weighed in at 7 lbs 14 ounces. He is just absolutely beautiful. He has the sweetest little face and I am already deeply in love with this little fella. I can tell that we are gonna have some great times together.
I have had the privilege of seeing all 6 of my grandchildren being born. There is just nothing quite as awesome as being able to witness new life. As we watched him emerge, we were all just so mesmorized by the miracle unfolding in front of us. God is so good. He has blessed me and my family immeasurably. If I didn't receive another blessing from Him, I would still be overflowing with His grace.
Tonight as I lay my head down, I will rest in the peace and safety of His arms. I have soaked up His goodness today. I have witnessed His miraculous power. And I am basking in the sheer radiance of His glory that was made manifest in a tiny little newborn babe.
God is indeed so good.
Silas at about 5 seconds old!
