Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. - Lamentations 3:32

Sean's brother and his wife welcomed Carson Evan into the world yesterday. He is named after our Evan and we are so touched by this. I would be lying if I said it did not hurt. I would be lying if I didn't say yesterday was really hard. But the truth is it was hard for them too. It hurt them too. It hurts for everyone involved. I could wallow in my pain or I can decided to be happy that this beautiful baby is happy and healthy and loved. So today I am choosing to be happy for Aaron and Kelly who have this precious baby to hug and love. To be happy for his big sister who doesn't quite know what to think about him yet. To be happy for his grandparents who have another grandson to love. To be happy for Sean and I who have a healthy nephew to spoil. To be happy for G&G who have a new cousin to play with. God has given this family a precious new life and I can celebrate that or fall into a pit of grief and bitterness. And I am choosing to celebrate this precious new life.
