My family and I have been rather preoccupied with Team Cameron and the battle for life.  Life.  It’s so precious.  From the moment it begins, it’s unique, special, and in most cases, cherished.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.    Psalm 139:13-14

Since early yesterday, we have been celebrating the birth of a new family member.  Eva Faith was born yesterday.  She is the first child of our ring bearer and his wife.  I have a special softness for Eva’s daddy.  He will always be “my” ring bearer.  When he married, I was fully prepared to dislike his bride.  I did not believe that anyone out there could be good enough for this young man.  I was wrong.   His beloved is more than good enough.  She has added to him in a way that makes me want to weep with joy.  And now, their daughter is here.  And I cannot help but weep with joy at her precious beauty.  The expression on her daddy’s face when he gazes upon her is priceless.

We continue to fight for life alongside Cameron.  And we celebrate when newborn life thrives with seeming ease.  We cannot know what the future holds.  We only know that we must cherish each moment of the present.

Happy BIRTHday, Eva Faith!
