…...our 4th little boy.
Meet Judah Garin.
Born Thursday September 19th at 2:18 p.m.
8lbs. 7 oz.
20 inches long
And so sweet.
We wanted this little guy to have a name with meaning. Marvin was traveling for about a week and when he came home and we both had thought of the name Judah. That night we were reading to the boys from their Jesus Storybook Bible the story of Jacob, Rachel and Leah. How Jacob worked for an additional 7 years so he could marry the sister he loved, Rachel not the one he was tricked into marrying.
As we read…”Now when Leah knew that God loved her, in her heart, suddenly it didn’t matter anymore whether her husband loved her the best, or if she was the prettiest. Someone had chosen her, someone did love her-with a Never Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.
So when Leah had a baby boy she called him Judah which means, “This time I will praise the Lord! And that’s just what she did.”
We loved that idea of Praising the Lord for our Judah and it was a fitting name after this past year of learning what the Lord means by loving us with a never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever love throughout heartache.
His middle name was a tough one to choose, but ultimately we loved the fact that Garin means warrior and we wanted him to have a strong name. Ultimately we want him to have strong character, and our prayer is that he grows into a man who fights for the Lord.
So Mr. Judah Garin, we’re so thankful you are here. What a gift you have been already. We are praising the Lord for you.
