Jana and Kris's New Gift from God

Well, Jana and Kris had there first child last night. For those of you that don't know this is my Brother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law. The new baby was a beautiful baby boy. I got to stop in and see him for the first time this morning. It was neat to see these 2 new parents so excited and so in love.

It made me think about a statement in "The Family: A Proclamation to the World"

"Husband and wife have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children. "Children are an heritage of the Lord" (Psalms 127:3). Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live. Husbands and wives—mothers and fathers—will be held accountable before God for the discharge of these obligations."

There is no doubt in my mind that Jana and Kris will be wonderful parents and fulfill their responsibilities as parents to this wonderful gift from God. It brings me joy to see another child born to this world to goodly parents who will love their child as much as they will. I feel lucky to just share a small portion of their new found joy with them.
