A Precious Gift from God

After much prayer, the Lord has chosen to give us the desire of our hearts. He has blessed us with a baby. In His Word, God says in Psalm 127: 3 Children are an heritage from the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. We are most undeserving of this wonderful gift.

After going to our last ultrasound, we got see Nathanael Levi in 4-D. It is so neat how his face is visible. This picture was only possible because the doctors felt that I needed an ultrasound done on a higher quality machine because of a problem they had found with my cervix. But thanks to the Lord, we found out that it was a misdiagnosis. Nathanael's due date is April 18, 2008.

In preparation for Nathanael, we are reading Growing up God's Way, by John Stormer and a number of other parenting books. Also on our parenting book list is Withhold not Correction, written by our very own pastor, Bruce Ray.
Derek chose Nathanael's name from the Bible. The spelling is the same as that of one of the disciples. His name means gift of God. Nathanael likes to kick when Daddy reads him his favorite book The Lightlings by RC Sproul. Nathanael loves it!
For anyone who would like to bless Nathanael with a gift, he is registered at BABIES "R" US. (
