After the nurses left, the first thing we did was give her her life verse which we carefully chose weeks ago. Perze read her life verse out loud, the way he read Emma’s when she was first born (Psalm 91). Afterward, we prayed for her and gave our deep thanks for her beloved life.
Her birthday Bible Verse: “May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you. May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion. May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.
We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests. Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.”
-Psalm 20:1-8 (We love you anak…)

To all our family and friends: We GENUINELY are so humbled by all your words of encouragement and especially the number of people who committed to pray for and with us throughout the pregnancy and labor.
