New Baby Girl

I am spending this week in the northern mountains. My son and daughter-in-law have a new baby girl, one week old yesterday. She has lots of very dark hair and dark eyes; she's very different from her big (19 months old--not very big) sister, who is quite fair and blonde with bright blue eyes.

She has a hard time staying awake long enough to eat before she falls asleep again--unless, of course, it is three o'clock in the morning.

I haven't seen them in a year because we live so far apart, all the way across the nation. But from now on, I am going to make sure I see them more often. A year is too long a time to miss in the life of a little girl.

Creating new lives is one of God's most marvelous miracles.
