Baby Asaph







Our first grandbaby was born July 24, 2011. I arrived in New York City just hours before he entered the world. He was born at home, weighing in at 9 lbs. 11 oz. He is beautiful!
His parents, our son, Caleb, and his wife, Ashley chose the name Asaph because they love Psalm 73, a Psalm of Asaph. They had a friend die recently, a close friend, a young man that they loved very much. The Lord comforted their hearts with this Psalm of Asaph.
He will be called "Ace".
His middle name is Bernard, Ashley's maiden name.
I am reading through the Bible again this year and while I was caring for Asaph who was only a few days old, watching him sleep in his crib, I read in my daily reading 1Chronicles 15-16. Verse 7 of chapter 16 says, " On that day David first delivered this psalm into the hand of Asaph and his brethren, to thank the Lord . . ." the psalm follows.
What will be delivered into this little guy's hand to do for the Lord? I am not sure yet, it has not yet been revealed. Until I see it, I will pray for it, and for him, this little man that has stolen my heart.
I am home now and missing him so much. I keep asking the Lord if I really have to remain a Kansas girl forever. I could give it up in a heartbeat!

Congratulations it is a wonderful thing to become grandparents. We have six now and they have blessed us abundantly.
Four out of our six were preemies so we got very familiar with the neonatal part of the hospital. The tiniest was 2pds 11oz and then her sisters were identical twins, 4pds.6oz and 4pds.10oz (5 years later) then a grandson came weighing 5pds 8oz then another grandson was 7 pds 2 oz and then the last grandson was 7 pds 5 oz. Our daughter has daughters and our son has sons. You will treasure every minute. God bless you.
