Friday - 7:30am....

Just moments ago, Jackie handed me her cellphone with: "Listen to this."

I put it up to my ear and for a few minutes listened to the recording of the squeaks and soft "chirps" of our 12th grandchild...Jack...sleeping soundly at 1am.

We had already seen pictures of the little man, looking so much like his strong father.

Born in California at 6:59 last night and weighing in at 7 pounds, 12 ounces, he has already won our hearts.

His name means "God is gracious."

Micah, his army dad, got to fly home for the birthing and all went well.

A faith triumph for our kids...having lost Gracie at birth in March 2010.

Congratulations Sarah and Micah...and Ella!

"The Lord is gracious." I Peter 2:3

We are grateful for His goodness in our lives today.

Thanks be to God.

And welcome be to Jack.
