Happy Valentines’ Day to you! I hope you have a truly happy day!!
This has been another big week in the life of our littlest valentine! The best news is that Samuel now weighs a tiny bit over 5 pounds! What do you think of that?! The other really exciting news is that he had his first heart-to-heart with Alan, and I got to hold him too! 🙂In fact, he even smiled at me. Talk about melting my heart!!! “Uncle Stephen” also came, & Brianna showed him all her happy holding tricks. Baby Samuel is Stephen Samuel’s namesake…a very special honor for both! Stephen is Daniel’s next-younger brother in our tribe. God is so good to us! You can bet we’re really celebrating this day with our littlest valentine! Despite all the good news, there are still several bridges to cross before he can go home: hernia surgery, remembering to breathe all the time (stabilization), and more mature feeding skills. However, we know he’s getting great earthly care and is safely in God’s hands,and we are now looking forward to the bright hope that his health issues will clear up by God’s grace, and that he’ll be able to come home before too long!
“Jehovah! It is nothing with Thee to help, between the mighty and those who have no power; help us, O Jehovah, our God, for on Thee we have leant.”
