How does one introduce someone who has wrapped their little fingers around your heart and completely changed your world?! She’s so much more than her baby statistics (7lb 2.3 oz and 19.5 in, Birthdate: April 1st, 7:45 pm), a name doesn’t do her justice (Chloe Michelle), not even a picture can truly capture the new emotions welling up inside our hearts. Those of you who are parents in our church have been telling me this for years:
“Once you have a child, you’ll understand love at a level you never thought possible”
I had no idea…
Chloe was due April 16, but God in His mercy sent her two weeks early. COVID-19 is projected to be reaching its peak (in Michigan) around April 16. Grateful to the Lord for hearing our prayers and sending the baby early. Church Family, thank you for your prayers! Thank you for the messages. Forgive Lindsey and I if we don’t get back immediately. We will get back with you when we are able. Your thoughts, love, and prayers are so greatly appreciated!
Pastor Jerico and Elder Fitzpatrick are taking over the day to day operations of the church for the next couple of weeks since COVID-19 has made it impossible for any family to come and help. So thankful for both of them. It takes a team to run a church (and our home!), and we are blessed with a wonderful team at every level of our church family.
Miracle from God
As I’ve been holding Chloe over these last couple of days, I am in awe at the miraculous power of God in the fashioning of this precious life.
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD… Psalms 127:3
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. Psalms 139:13
Truly our God is an awesome God. Another child has been added to our church family. A child that has been designed by God to be a part of taking the gospel to the World and living forever.
