Welcome, Baby James



Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.

(Psalm 30:5)

Actually, joy came last night.

After a season of loss and sadness in our family, God has given a gift of great joy.

He came five days late.  He was big--9 lb 4 0z, 21+".  My daughter Michelle's water broke Tuesday morning.  An afternoon of hard labor yielded no progress.In late afternoon baby began to show signs of stress.  So the doctor decided it was time to take him.  In 45 minutes Baby James was born.  He is fine, healthy, big and peaceful, carrying the name of his dad (Bradley James), two grandfathers and a great grandfather. Brad and Michelle are doing great also.

Thanks for the prayers.  So grateful!!

(Mom and Dad prefer no photos online, so I can’t show you how beautiful he is.)
