My friends Thomas and Samantha had their baby today and I honest-to-gosh could not be more excited about it. I was overwhelmed with the oddest sensation to pray for Samantha last night, so I began praying fervently... and just shortly after I received a text from Thomas that she was having contractions! I got another text at 5 a.m. saying they had arrived at the hospital. I prayed and prayed and prayed all morning and received my favorite text of the day, "He is out." Haha leave it to a guy to announce the birth of his child in such a matter-of-fact way.

But he's here, he's here, he's really here! And I get to meet him tomorrow! Hooray!

Praise God for new life and new beginnings all around.

Love you, seriously.

I'm so glad you listened to the 'still small voice' that was nudging you to pray. Thank God for the power of prayer.

I pray for you every morning.

I know you were praying hard during Cadence's birth and I'm glad you were praying for your even though you didn't realize she was in labor. :) That is such a guy way to announce the birth of his baby. Enjoy visiting the happy family!
