Awestruck Wonder

"How great are His signs, And how mighty His wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And His dominion is from generation to generation." Daniel 4:3

Isaiah Pieter’s arrived! September 2, 2010

Filed under: family — steveamy @ 10:29

Isaiah’s presence has long been felt, and for the last five days of being overdue we couldn’t wait for the great day of delivery (or is it deliverance?) to come!

God graciously gave us our son early Monday morning.  So now we see him, this little guy who has been growing in the safety of Amy’s womb for much of the past year.  It reminds us of another relationship that will one day be face to face, not too long from now.  (Rev 22.20)

He loves to sleep.  And eat.  Among other things.  It seems everything is working just fine, including some new aspects about boys which are really something for us to get used to. 🙂

I won’t go into the labor specifics, other than to say the Lord gave Amy a calm and even relaxed way about her, until about an hour before the baby came – and even then she did so well!  Thanks to all who were praying for us! One really senses the LORD’s nearness and personal presence through the whole experience.

Sierra loves her little brother – and will make an amazing sister and second mommy. 🙂

We praise God for his faithfulness, and pray our son would grow in faith in HIM, as per the verse we gave him:

The LORD lives!
Blessed be my Rock! (Pieter)
Let the God of my salvation (Isaiah) be exalted!
Psalm 18:46

    Praise the Lord! He not only gave you a smooth delivery (I did not say pain-free, or without crazy moments……;)) and a healthy son, He also made Isaiah very cute 🙂 Enjoy him – as we know you will. So sweet to see Sierra loving him up – what precious days!
