Precious and New

God gave our family a precious gift late this past Monday night when Peter Lawrence McCurdy was born to our daughter Mary Evelyn and her husband Nate.

On Wednesday I took a picture to church to show the children in the outreach class. They clamored to get a close look and were thrilled to see their teacher’s new baby. After class, other grandmothers gathered around to get their first glimpse at his picture. They were all smiles, too, and said sweet words about little Peter.

Any words I try to write seem inadequate today. I’ll just ask you to rejoice and praise God with me and remind you that you are even more precious to your heavenly Father than Peter is to his mama, daddy, big sister, big brother, and his Notty and Little. And, let me tell you, that is saying a whole lot.

For You are my hope;
O Lord God, You are my confidence from my youth.
By You I have been sustained from my birth;
You are He who took me from my mother’s womb;
My praise is continually of You.
Psalm 71:5-6
