Well, he’s here! Joshua Daniel Heinrich was born this morning (August 16) at 5:13 am. He was 8 lbs 11 oz and 21 inches long. The camera is still at the hospital with Rachel, so I’ll have to upload pictures later. In the meantime you can see one that I took with my phone on my Facebook page.
I still can’t believe how good God is to us. I just don’t understand why He blesses us over and over again, but I praise Him for it anyway! The name “Joshua” means “Jehovah is generous,” and though we didn’t know that when we picked the name, it fits perfectly. In so many ways He demonstrates that He loves us beyond measure, such as the people He had praying for us this weekend. Blessings take many forms, and even if we don’t always recognize them, it’s wonderful to know that God has for us “thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jer 29:11)
Update: Pictures are up.
