One of the best parts of the ministry here at New Life is our visits from our babies. Today we were blessed by a visit from Gabriel and his mom, Megan. There is always a little good natured competition for who gets to hold a baby first and for the longest. There is also a deep desire to just “hog” our babies for the whole time they visit. There is never a shortage of love radiating from all of us to these precious ones that God gifts into our lives.
I was able to visit Gabriel in the hospital right after he was first born. I find such great pleasure in meeting these little ones for the first time. I love to touch their perfect little fingers and toes and to kiss their fuzzy heads. I’m always amazed at God’s artwork in the creation of each little baby. How can we not be blown away by the innocence and beauty of each precious child? I love to pray over each child, and Gabriel was no exception. I thank God for their safe arrival and the health of their moms. I also pray for strength and wisdom for their parents and for the purpose God has for each of their lives.
We feel a deep sense of awe that God entrusts these precious parents and children into our lives. We know that God has made them for a great purpose. We know they never come through our door by accident or chance. God has sent them to us with a great purpose in mind. What an honor it is to be chosen by God to be a part of ministry, here at
