Gifts of Grace
Here's our new baby boy, Samuel. He was 7 lbs. 13 oz. and 20 inches long. He was born May 9th at 11:25 am.
As I think about this day, and the birth of another child, I am truly blessed by the grace that God has bestowed on Tracy and me.
I want you to see this picture and realize that whatever God gives, it's not for us to horde for ourselves. It's given to us to enjoy and to entrust in God's care because He has entrusted us with this gift....(make sense?). What an amazing privilege. What a tremendous amount of grace that God has given to us.
Every good and perfect gift comes from above. My understanding of that passage is that God gives everything. It's good and perfect through the eyes of faith. Focus your attention on Him. Trust Him. Thank Him for the blessings!
