Welcome Baby Girl

Posted by Stephanie on 3:23 PM

Moriyah Elyse

born at home
Yom Shabbat (Saturday)
July 30
5:14 pm
8.9 lbs (currently 7.15lbs)
20.5 in.

We are all so thankful that Moriyah is finally here with us! She came into the world and joined our family on a Shabbat just as I knew in my heart she would. It had been my desire that she would be born on the set apart day and Father honored that. It was my longest and hardest labor and one I am still processing from all the spiritual and life lessons. It was such an amazing process albeit a long 14 hours.



 

I knew from the moment I found out I was pregnant that this precious miracle was a gift for our entire family and she is. She is so much more than words can describe. Each of the children adore her and Victoria was amazing through my labor which I will share when I write my birth story. She even cut the cord! She and my wonderful husband were my anchors and support.

Our family moments after Moriyah's birth

David blessing his new daughter with the Aaronic Blessing


I am thankful that David is home for the next two weeks so I can rest. He already has fun projects planned for he and the children. I feel good and it's nice to have a smaller baby to care for this time around!  Many thanks to all of you for your love, prayers and concern for our family.  I am so deeply touched and humbled beyond description.  Birth story and pictures to follow shortly :)

Congratulations on a beautiful little girl!

I see you did have a smaller baby this time! Did you follow through with the vegetarian diet (do you think it helped?)

Scripture and Quotes

"Children are a heritage of YHWH; the fruit of the womb is His reward. As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are the children of youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. " Psalm 127:3-4

The Scriptures teach that debt is a curse and children are blessings; but in our culture, we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture.
