Welcome Sophie-Paige!

Welcome to Sophie-Paige, who was born yesterday morning around 8:25 am! She weighed 5 pounds, 14 ounces, and she was measured at 18 inches. I just visited her, and she's beautiful! In the picture to the left she's being loved on by her big brother Jack.

"Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward."
~Psalm 127.3

Gardiner Spring -- a Presbyterian pastor who died in 1873 -- once said this about these little images of God:

"The poorest, the weakest, the simplest child, is born for immortality. This value outweighs the entire material universe, no matter how small a mark this child makes on it. The tiniest infant owns a deathless intellect, and is as immortal as the Father of spirits. No one can tell what this child will become."

We're glad to meet you, Sophie-Paige!
