Last Monday we experienced first hand the LIFE and JOY that can come even in the middle of a valley (as mentioned in the last post). My sister, Elisabeth, and brother-in-law Ben welcomed their first-born, Josiah Blake Lind into the world. In a way that only Jesus could have orchestrated Mom, Dad and I were all able to be there. Ben was even able to obtain special permission for Mom to go back and be the first one to meet this precious little boy.
Over six months ago upon first seeing Elisabeth after her stroke and surgeries Mom immediately put her hand on Elisabeth’s stomach and tried to ask about the baby. It was that moment along with several others that helped us know that Mom was still very much with us even though she was in the fight of her life. What a gift and a double miracle to see her sitting up, able to travel and holding baby Josiah in her arms.
Josiah is named in honor of his grandmother, and her miraculous and difficult journey of healing throughout most of his 9 month creation.
Josiah – means Jehovah Heals
Blake – significant family name and Katy’s middle name.
We are so thankful for the gift of life and the God who creates and sustains it!
