Babies Are Such A Nice Way To Start People

Welcome to the world my newest little nephew, Mason!

He was born yesterday at 605pm weighing in at a whopping 9 lbs 12 oz and is 20 1/4" long!! Proud parents, my brother Matt and his girlfriend Charli, are also doing great and are ecstatic about his safe and healthy (very healthy!) arrival. He is absolutely beautiful and is already a blessing to our family. God is so good!
We found out about Charli's pregnancy about a month after I had been diagnosed and I remember saying that "this baby is a gift from God; a blessed sign of hope and promise and will give us something happy to focus on during months of treatments." Charli was never supposed to be able to get pregnant, due to severe endometriosis, so just the simple fact that she did is a miracle in itself. Our awesome God gets all the honor and glory for his always perfect plan! Even when we are not quite sure how things are going to work out, we must be assured that GOD is NEVER surprised and nothing EVER catches Him off guard. While we may be startled by change, we know that He has a plan "to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future," Jeremiah 29:11.
Have a great Thursday ya'll! I'll post more pics when I get my camera cord!
