We Love You Hunter...

Today is a very special day in the lives of our family.  Today we celebrate the birth of our precious new grandson, Hunter Michael Swift, born this afternoon at approximately 1:15pm or so, 7lbs, 3oz, 20.5 inches long...five little fingers and five little toes...He was three weeks early, but right on time...God's perfect time...A little miracle, a little gift.   The labor was long and at times very hard; I thought to myself thanks a lot Eve...you just had to eat that fruit...His mommy did wonderfully though, such grace under pressure..enduring the pain, anticipating the reward...His daddy, being brave and supportive, did a wonderful job at his post...holding her hand and speaking words of encouragement...then finally...this new little one made his grand entrance into this world.   Joy beyond measure saturated the room as this tiny new life caused such excitement..the medical team scrambled to take stats and complete reports...pictures snapping all around this little celebrity who had taken command of the room.  So now his journey begins....we are so blessed....for it is written.."For you formed my inward parts, You covered me in my mother's womb.  I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made..."   Thank you Lord for this gift of new life...

      "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the
                                          Father of lights........"           James 1:17
