My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Luke is 2 weeks and 1 day old!

Luke was 2 weeks old on Saturday!  He has been moved to the Level 2 nursery and is in an open crib. Luke is growing, he is  17 3/4 inches long and weighs 3 lbs 12.9 ounces.  I was able to hold him for the first time!  Praise the Lord for His many blessings!
Luke and his dad!
Luke and his mom!
Please pray that Luke will soon be able to nurse from a bottle.  He is getting mom's milk through a feeding tube.  His sucking reflexes haven't gotten strong enough for bottle feeding.

Thank you for all the prayers and concerns for Luke.  Please continue to pray for this little one.
Luke's mother says it all...
"We pray that Luke's life will be a testimony of God's grace and mercy."

Wonderful news. Babies are such a blessing. I'm glad you were able to hold him and do a little snuggling.
