I am so glad to announce the birth of our baby girl Alice. My friends, she has arrived and she is beautiful. I received a few pictures the other day and she is so precious. So the Lord placed it on my heart to share the splendor of her God-given beauty.
As I was looking at these pictures Psalm 127 came to my mind. I remember reading this scripture long ago. It is actually a song of Ascents. Of Solomon. It is about how one can labor and prosper with the Lord in the center of their life. It is absolutely beautiful, and it is a privilege to share the word with you. Be blessed beloved:)
Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows; for so He gives His beloved sleep.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward, like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed, but shall speak with their enemies in the gate.
As the impartation of the word is planted in us, we come to realize our efforts are useless if we do not partner with God in what he wants, where he wants, and how he wants it. It is without doubt the blessing of the Lord which spells the difference between success and failure, satisfaction and regret.
I am truly humbled and consider it a privilege to share the good news about Jesus and the good news about baby Alice regardless the circumstances at this point in time. Thank you Lord for I am ever so grateful for all you have done for me. I love you Lord with all my heart, soul, and mind. Praise your holy name.
Alice right now you are over 16,000 miles away and I want you to know that Jesus loves you and, daddy loves you so much. God bless you all:)
