Welcome Isabella Grace Schrader

By pastorbillwalden

sarah-isabella-day-1Our first grand child was born today, and 7:49 p.m. She was  7 lbs., 13 oz., 20″, and she has amazing hands.  Well heck, all of her is amazing.

Our daughter Sarah labored like a champ, and our son in law Caleb coached her wonderfully.  Caleb’s mom Marianne is a nurse and supported and stepped in as needed.  My wife Debbie was there for incredible moral support.

By the time Isabella was born, all of our kids were there (Chris & Melissa, Jon), as well as Paul, Caleb’s dad, and Caleb’s two brothers (Noah & Luke).  With our loved ones around us, the blessing was complete.  It was a moment captured in my mind and heart, and I am grateful to God.

It seems like yesterday that I coached Debbie as she brought Sarah into the world.  Now my little girl is a mom, and I am a grandpa.  God is good.  These are the simple yet profound blessings of life.  There is nothing like it.

Thanks to all for prayers and support.
