Introducing Serene Joy

serene joy day 1
For those who might have seen on Instagram, our little miss is here!

Serene Joy was born on Thursday, October 3rd, 2013 at 2:43am at 6 lbs 9 oz and 19 inches long.

serene (adjective) - calm and peaceful; content; shining bright and steady
joy (noun) - a feeling of great happiness; a source of delight

Our prayer for our little miss is that she would not only be content and at peace in the Lord's will, but that she would also be a light that shines bright and steady as a testimony to how good God is to us in Christ. She is a source of great delight and happiness to us (we're unabashedly in love with her!), and we also pray that she would be a cheerful little girl who finds her joy in the Lord above all else.

Thank you so much for following along on this sweet journey to this precious little gift God has graciously bestowed upon us. We're in awe of how the Lord has fearfully and wonderfully made our little girl, and we're praying to be good stewards of this gift of life that He has lent us for the time being.

Time is flying by, and I shall be back to this space after a spell. After all, a new baby is all the cause for sweet celebration and cuddling aplenty around here!
