He is Here

Thursday, December 17, 2009


We're calling him "Bredon" (brEE-dun)

Meaning: "sword" (any guesses as to why we used this one?)

-------------------------------------------

More to come, of course. In a while. Thank you all for your prayers. They were felt.

Congratulations! I love the name. We were big on the meaning of the names we chose for our kids, so I can't wait to hear the reason behind "Sword".

Congratulations!

May his life be one that blesses the Almighty.

Grace and Peace to you...

Cassandra Frear said...

I pull in my breath. A miracle. So fresh from heaven and trailing clouds of glory. The hand of the Creator stamped upon his countenance. What has this little one seen? What does he know? What could he tell us of the Heavenly Father?

Wonderfully and fearfully made.

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almightly, we praise you and we kneel down before this new life. For here you dwell and speak and summon us to your presence.

May your family sense our Lord, Emmanuel, anew in this new life.

Merry, merry Christmas, dear friend.

Congrats Kelly and family! I have been distracted as you know and did not realize that your little man had been born. (and i didn't want to ask in case he hadn't & add insult to injury ;-) sounds like things went pretty smooth.

Do you have the book "love you forever" by robert munsch? if not i would love to send it to you.
let me know. peace, love & joy!
