What an honor for me to get to be there, to get to pray for them and witness their love made flesh. I am so proud of Stef and Wrex and how they worked so hard, together, committed to make the baby’s birth a wonderous and glorious event. And I am humbled. The favor of God shines on this family. He must surely be smiling at what they did. I know I am.
Sawyer Joell Phipps – isn’t she lovely?
Isn’t she lovely
Isn’t she wonderful
Isn’t she precious
Less than one minute old
Sawyer at less than 10 minutes old. Daddy wore pink to welcome her. He’s man enough!
7:14:21 on 8:19:10 at 9:27
At 9:27 pm, 22 1/2 hours after the very first labor contraction, Sawyer arrived to cheers and tears and joy and family. 7 pounds, 14 ounces, 21 inches long. She has her mommy’s fabulous long legs and slender feet and pouty lips. And she has her daddy’s heart…already! Sawyer, blessed more than she realizes, is already loved and adored.
I never thought through love we’d be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn’t she lovely made from love.*
