I bring you news of the birth of Austin Coley H. (above), son of Martha and Bobby, grandson of my sister and brother-in-law and great-nephew of ConcordPastor.
He was born on January 9th at 6:17 p.m., weighs 6lbs, 12oz, and is 18.5 inches long.
He was almost three weeks early but both he and his mother are in good health: praise God from whom all blessings flow!
My sister has declared, with eminent objectivity, that he is perfect!
(Austin is named after my father.)
Let us pray...
you are the source of all blessings, the protector of infants,
whose gift of children enriches and brightens a marriage.
Look with favor on Austin Coley
and, when he is reborn of water and the Holy Spirit,
bring him into your own spiritual family, the Church,
there to become a sharer in your kingdom
and with us to bless your name for ever.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
(from the Book of Blessings)
